Do you have a lot of balls that need to be fetched? Then come meet Tuesday! This lively boy just loves to fetch. He can fetch for hours and is especially delighted to run in and out of pools. It's so much fun to have up to five balls and toys to choose from in his baby pool where he can wallow in the water like a little piggy. Then he'll be happy to walk nicely by your side, hoping for delicious treats.

This playful dude wants to be an incredibly loyal companion for his human friends and is happiest to be protective for just one or two. He's a smart boy who wants to keep them safe. He understands "sit" and "down" and is working on "drop" and "come." Plus, he's a house- and crate-trained boy who hopes they'll be home with him most of the day.

Tuesday hopes for a home with a yard to play in and just wants to be the only pet in one with grownups to play with. Of course, he's going to love one with a baby pool to splash in. Come meet this sweet boy!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
