"Let's play!!!"

Bel-air is a real character and is always ready to play and show off his goofy antics. If we didn't know any better, we'd think this lovable klutz was being clumsy on purpose just to keep his person entertained. Either way, he's sure to keep you laughing.

Loyal and caring, Bel-air is very in tune with his person and always seems to know when they need a long hug. He adores people and particularly loves when he can snuggle up in bed with them.

Bel-air is house-trained, and while he's not crazy about going into his crate, if you offer a reward like a treat or water (yes, water), he'll go in and settle down nicely. He's also a big fan of all toys, especially kongs filled with peanut butter. He walks well on leash, knows 'around' 'sit' and 'down' and is generally well-behaved as long as he gets plenty of exercise to get his ya-yas out. He also previously lived with a blue heeler/lab mix and could go home with a well-matched doggie sibling

Bel-air is looking for a home with someone is comfortable setting boundaries, will give him plenty of playtime, continue his training, and ideally one where he can sleep in bed with you, because that's one of his favorite things. In return, Bel-air promises to love you forever. Come meet this great pup!
