My story

This incredibly handsome boy is Bandit.  He absolutely will steal your heart with his beautiful blue eyes.  Bandit is approximately 2 yrs old. We have him listed as a Mountain Cur mix but we are not sure.

Bandit is somewhat laid back and will take his time with new people to make sure they are to be trusted.  He can live with another dog but a proper meet and greet will be required.  He will not do well with a dog that is in his face.  Home without cats would be best. 

Possibly a home that does not have a lot traffic in and out would be best for Bandit.    He is a very nice dog and will be a great addition to the right person/family. 

If you are viewing this pet's profile on Petfinder or Adopt-a-Pet,.please use the application link at the bottom of the profile to apply. Clicking the "Ask About" button does not submit an application. It only submits a question which will delay an application submission. 


All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative (age 7 months and older) and microchipped. We do not ship or transport. A dog's adoption donation is $200. There is a $5 fee for credit/debit cards.
