Master is a friendly and wiggly pup with unconventional good looks, namely a crooked smile and an adorably misshapen head to go with it, and his mission in life is to bring lots of love to his humans! Master is a big fan of humans and will happily greet new people. When volunteers leash him up for the first time, they think he's raising his lips at them until they realize that's just how his face is.

Master has such a friendly and trusting demeanor and wants you to know right away that you're already good friends. When you sit down, he'll lay his head in your lap and look longingly into your eyes. And all on the first date! He also comes in the perfect size - not too big, not too small. He knows sit, walks well on leash, is non-reactive to other animals on his walks and responds well to corrections.

This energetic fella loves to run and jump and do zoomies all over the yard. He can run and run, but he will always drop what he's doing when you call him over. Master loves to be loved on and butt scratches put him on cloud 9. He does the most hilarious wiggle to show you just how thrilled he is to be receiving them, but his absolute favorite thing is having his ears rubbed.

Happy, trusting and affectionate, Master will make some lucky humans very happy, and he may be able to go home with a well-matched doggie sibling. His ideal setup would have some outdoor space for him to stretch his legs and run, but as long as he has a home that will give him plenty of exercise and cuddle time, we think he'll be thrilled.

Master doesn't ask for much - just your loving company will make him the happiest dog in the world. Come meet this sweet guy!
