Onyx, your new adventure buddy!

Onyx isn't your average canine companion; he's a goofy whirlwind of playful energy! This (likely) German Shepherd/Lab mix is a ball of nonstop fun with a heart as big as his giant paws (which he uses with surprising skill). Onyx would love nothing more than to be your co-pilot on endless expeditions.

Get ready for an active lifestyle because Onyx thrives on adventure. He's a whiz at fetch, always up for a run, and loves nothing more than roughhousing with doggy pals. Tug-of-war? Absolutely! Flirt pole sending him airborne? You bet! Walks and runs are his daily bread (though "cookies", as he calls them, are a close second).

When he's not on the go (which is rare!), he's showering you with affection and loyalty. Just watch out for his tail wags - they're powerful! A pro at potty breaks and crate ("condo") time, this well-trained pup knows his basic commands ("sit", "lay", "wait", "condo", "paw") and thrives on routine. When it's time to unwind, you'll find him contentedly chewing on a bone, rawhide, doggy kabob, or yak cheese, a blissful smile plastered on his face.

Looking for a sweet, goofy, and energetic companion who loves cool weather adventures? Then Onyx is your perfect match!
