  • A Little About Me: I am a total hunk and thrive when I am with people. I love to be mentally stimulated just as much as getting my play on. I love to be tucked into my blanket when it’s chilly, it’s really rather adorable. I love to cuddle too. I have proven to be very smart in foster, I only get on the couch when my blanket is on the couch and I know not to get on the bed unless invited. I have pretty good restraint because all I ever want to do is come up and snuggle. I love playing with my toys but my favorite exercise is walking. I am smart and love to please, your wish is my command. Looking for a smart hunk than I am your guy! Muscle bound goodness for sure.

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.
