My story

Well hello there! My name is Slate! I’m a very handsome boy that is looking for a home! I am currently at Happy Hound Doggie Daycare having a BLAST! I get to go into playgroup everyday and play with many dogs! it’s seriously the BEST! I’m not sure what my past life was, but I lived in a shelter for 10 months ? I was starting to go downhill with stress and Hopalong came in and took me away! Now I’m having so much fun and hoping to find the best home! I’m still young and learning manners! I can be a bit rough at times, I sometimes forget I am not a puppy and get play mouthy, but take corrections well if you tell me to stop! I love going on hikes, love meeting new people and dogs. Just need someone with patience that can continue training me to be the best boy! Happy Hound has taken me under their wing and I'm already learning so many things. I love them so much!

Considering that I lived in a shelter for 9 months, I’m doing good! The shelter where I was at even did a DNA to see what I was! And guess what? I’m mostly a LAB! 60% lab 30% Shepherd and 10% pitbull. Yet, I look so unique! That’s why I’m so special! I am a high energy dog that wants a super fun home! I do relax and chill too, just need someone experienced! Being that I still act like a puppy at times, I’m probably best in a home with no small children! Unknown how I am around cats unfortunately! I hope you ask about me! I’d love a home with a yard, someone that loves to go out and go on fun outdoor trips! In the meantime, I’m having a blast at Happy Hound!
