If you love the outdoors and adventuring, but are also looking for a first-rate cuddle buddy, Lariat may be the friend you've been missing.

Lariat is an energetic, athletic pup who lives every day to the fullest. Long walks or jogs seem to be the best way to burn off all that enthusiasm, and he is always ready to join you on runs or hikes or really anything you're up for. Make sure you have an extra tennis ball or three handy because Lariat LOVES fetch and will play for as long as you're willing to. He's also a big fan of squeaky toys and loves basking in the sunshine when he's out in the yard.

Lariat lives for tummy rubs and adores affection from his humans, but he also isn't demanding about it - he'll only cuddle in close once welcomed to do so and then will adorably lay his head in your lap. He's an absolute sucker for butt scratches, and if you don't mind kisses, he will gladly lay a few on!

Lariat is also quite the smarty pants and definitely has had prior training. He knows sit, shake and down (maybe with treat incentives, but he does know them), has excellent home manners and is really good about getting off the furniture when you tell him to. He walks well on leash and doesn't seem to respond to passing dogs and cats. He's also fully house and crate-trained and sleeps quietly through the night.

Loyal and trusting and so very affectionate, Lariat is more than ready to be your forever sidekick. If you're looking for an athletic best friend to add to your lifestyle, Lariat would love to meet you!
