If you have neighbors who would like to be admired, they should come meet Palmer. This very friendly, gentle boy would love to say Hi to them and hope to get their petting. He can be a little shy at first, but warms up quickly to everyone he meets.

Now in foster care, this sweet boy loves to go on walks and jogs and does well on his leash, friendly when he meets other dogs. Back home, he loves sunbathing outside and getting pets and tummy rubs, often rolling on his back for them. Then he relaxes with his foster parents and loves to cuddle with them. He responds well to them, too, coming when he hears whistles and sees leg pats. He is house-trained and does well when his fosters are away.

This easy going boy will get well in most homes and would enjoy sharing it with dog buddies. Come meet him. All he'll ask for is your love!
Come meet your new best friend

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
