Introducing Espy, your ticket to boundless joy and unwavering companionship! This lovable pup is not just house-trained; he's a shining gem yearning to become a cherished member of a warm and loving home.

Espy's cuddle game is unparalleled - he's not just an enthusiast; he's an expert at turning snuggle sessions into moments of pure warmth and connection. An overnight with his shelter mamas from AAC confirmed what they thought would be true. Espy is the perfect houseguest - housetrained, non-destructive, and, yes, 100% snuggle bug.

Guaranteed to make you laugh, Espy's a little clown with a repertoire of tricks, including classics like sit and down to the more advanced spin and roll over. Espy's treat-motivated mind is ready to embark on training adventures with his forever parent(s), eagerly learning new things to bring joy to the household.

Espy is a water enthusiast, ready to make a splash and turn any water-centric activity into a memorable adventure. With a medium energy level and a playful spirit, he's the perfect blend of activity and relaxation, adapting to your lifestyle with ease. His leash skills make every walk a breeze, and his enthusiasm for interactive games ensures that boredom is never on the agenda.

"Espy is all heart with a very affectionate zen personality. I cherish every moment with him and look for them often - from leisurely walks, hiking adventures, relaxing on the sofa, and snuggle time." Shanna W., Volunteer Dog Walker

If you're in search of a furry friend who checks all the boxes, your quest ends with Espy - a charming, well-trained, and playful companion eager to embark on a journey of love and laughter with his forever family. Open your heart and home to Espy, and watch as each day becomes brighter in his delightful company.

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!
