  • Animal ID#: A768064
  • Dog Name: Xander
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age:  1.5 years
  • In-home information: House broken, crate trained
  • A Little About Me: I am one happy and handsome boy with a zest for life! I love my people and canine pals. I like to bounce balloons in the air – totally adorable I know! My record is ten bounces before it hits the ground. I love tug of war and my favorite toys are chews and ropes.  I am easy breezy, you can leave me at home when you go out, as I have not shown to chew or destroy things in the house but I will be longing for your return. I love walks, I don’t jump on people, and I behave in the car – perfect adventure buddy. I’m pretty quiet and don’t react to sounds, but I do bark when I play with people. Did I say I love people?! I am in foster so if you are interested in adopting me please submit and application to set up a meet and greet!
  • I participate in shelter playgroups with: Playful dogs
  • Walk Rating: Walks well, maintains loose leash
  • Snuggle Rating: Lives for snuggling, I live to be near my people
  • Type of Learner: Is ready and eager to learn but consistence and patience are important
  • Energy Level: Medium energy, enjoys some play but short sessions are best
  • Manner Level: I love meeting new people and get excited but calm quickly
  • My motivation is: Not always treat motivated, but I respond to lots of love, hugs and praise
  • Known Skills: Sit, Down, Watch Me, Stay, Leave it, Come, Go to your bed, Want to go for a walk?
  • Personality: Sweet, cuddly, playful, marshmallow, human motivated, life is better with humans and dogs
  • I am a great dog who would like you to keep in mind: I am a young playful guy but have had two hip surgeries. And because of that, I’ve never used my front paws to scratch at the door when I need to go out, so please pay attention. I might do best with older children.

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.
