This handsome pup is Dante! Dante is a loving senior dog, and he enjoys going on walks. Even though he is technically a senior he still has a pep in his step! Dante likes to make sure his human is safe and will typically walk in front of you to make sure you are protected. He likes to take in all the sights and smells around him, and will typically stand tall whenever the occasional squirrel threatens the peace of the neighborhood.

Dante is wonderfully house trained. He is very loyal and will stay by your side at home. He likes to stay in the same room as his humans, and will hang out quietly with you throughout the day. He knows some commands like "sit, "shake, and "go lay down. This quirky pup loves his belly rubs and he will frequently roll over on his back. Belly rubs are not expected every time he does it, but they are always appreciated.

Dante wants all of the human love to himself and he would love to be the only pup in the house. He loves being spoiled, and being an only child is the best-case scenario for him.

If you are ready to have a forever friend look no further. Dante is ready for his new family and would love a forever home. Come meet Dante today!
Come meet your new best friend
