I do not have the best hearing and can be a bit clumsy due to my eyes but I do respond well to a gentle touch and guidance. I may be a little older but don’t count me out, I like to play with my toys, especially a good game of tug of war. I don’t need a whole lot to be happy, I am just looking for a comfy bed and a human or two that will appreciate me and treat me as a true family companion. Please submit an app to learn how to meet me!

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.
