Smart, athletic AND good looking?! Meet Chief - the total package!

This energetic young pup is currently living in a foster home, and studying hard to be a certified VGB (Very Good Boy). Chief loves to learn and believes in the importance of exercising his mind as well as his body. His ideal day includes a nice long run, followed by some brain games. (He's a pro at sniffing out toys or treats, even when buried deep under piles of blankets). He likes to end his day with a good snuggle on the couch, curled up next to his favorite people. He's also housetrained and does well home alone.

Chief thrives on routine and would do best in a calm environment. Too much excitement or activity can be overwhelming for him. He is currently living peacefully with a cat in foster, and could potentially live with a calm dog, though he could happily be your one and only. Ask about this cutie today!
