Vegas is the best of both worlds! A relaxed cuddlebug in the home and a playful, silly boy in the yard. This sweet, imaginative boy loves his downtime, but he also loves to make up his own quirky games, entertaining his human friends to no end!

You should see him when he's out in the yard putting on a show! Living up to his name, Vegas is quite the acrobat. His performance includes running, jumping, rolling and spinning. It's hard not to laugh when he's tossing toys in the air or scampering after balls. Since he likes to include the audience in his act, he prefers to let the humans do the retrieving. You know he's really happy when he jumps into the air and spins in a tight circle.

Once the performance is over, Vegas is ready to chill inside. He's content to lay right by your side with his big ol' head in your lap. When he looks up at you with those soulful eyes, it's impossible to not fall in love.

Vegas is fully house-trained and is making good progress on crate-training, though he's so well-behaved when left alone, it isn't really necessary. And he's great at letting you know when he needs to go outside.

So what do you say? Are you ready for a new best friend who will give you a free Vegas show every day? Visit Vegas today and see how much he has to offer!
