  • A Little About Me: I was not a happy camper when I first landed in the shelter and did not want to be touched at all!  Well that has now changed and although I don’t prefer invasive handling I really enjoy going for walks with my handler, and petting. I bond very quickly with my handler and once I get to know my person I have a silly side. I am not an in your face type of guy and prefer people to go slow with me, but once I get to know I am very sweet. I am ready to continue to grow in a home of my own. Want to give me a chance to show how amazing I can be then send an email so we can set up a meet and greet!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
