You might refer to Von as a gentle giant -- because he is. Von is still coming out of his shell a bit but he likes to be near his person, leaning softly into you with his body, gazing into your eyes. And it isn't just for treats. He is an overall charmer who seems very easygoing and trusting of new people.

Von walks like a champ on leash and is very treat motivated. As a young dog, he will want to please you when you teach him new things. He hasn't shown any puppy shenanigans nor much interest in playing with toys yet. This brindle boy has not shown any reactivity towards other dogs in the kennels, even if they are barking at him. He has done well in play group with other dogs.

APA! staff comments that he is very sweet, and he is becoming a volunteer favorite. Come meet this lovable boy. He deserves a comfy spot in your home!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM - 6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
