Meet Licorice-the adventure buddy of your dreams!

Licorice has many qualities, but by far his love for exploring defines him as an amazing dog for any parents who love to hike, bike, and explore the world. Licorice would benefit from another pet sibling, dog, cat, big or small, he'll love them all! He's very gentle with other animals, and is extremely affectionate once he gets to know them. Licorice treats humans no differently, he's comfortable meeting new people and will latch onto you with cuddles and pets once he gets used to you!

His foster parents have reported lots of cuddles and affection these past few months with Licorice, and note that he is a very gentle and loving dog. He loves going on walks, playing, and exploring, and does extremely well on the leash. He's begun learning training skills, and is a fast learner picking them up. One thing he prefers though, is minimal crate time. Licorice loves to be out and about with his humans, and will benefit the most from limited crating. However, if crating is necessary, he will be most comfortable in a spacious crate with lots of room for his favorite toys.

Licorice always goes to the bathroom outside, and does well when asked to take care of his business. He's housetrained, and ready to take on his new adventure. Will you be Licorice's new adventure buddy?
