  • A Little About Me: I am one adventurous and fun guy who enjoys to be challenged mentally. I am a smart cookie and learn quickly but I sure do enjoy snuggling with my people once I have exercised my brain. When you are a smartie pants like me it is not just about the physical exercise, it is best to work with my obedience and be creative with things you can teach me. If you email the team they are willing to provide any support and suggestions you might need to make my adoption a smooth transition. I am not destructive which is super cool when leaving me home alone. I despise kennel life and therefore I don’t show so well. I am looking for an adopter who will look beyond my kennel presence and see how awesome and gorgeous of a dog I am, I am ready to be your smart and snuggly 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.
