  • A Little About Me: A gorgeous blue brindle in the shelter….unbelievable! They don’t come any more gorgeous than me! I am a mannerly guy that is gentle and enjoys order and routine. Chaos really stresses me out and something I am not fond of, it’s why I don’t show so well in my kennel. I do so much better once I am out of my kennel and working with my handler. I love working for my handler and boy am I one smart cookie. I learn fast and promise to please. I am affectionate, sweet, and easy-going. If easy breezy is your thing I am the boy for you! I will thrive in a family home so please get me out of my cage and let me be a family pet!

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.
