John Rambo is a real dog's dog who's easy to please. He enjoys going on walks, being pet and spending time with his people. As long has he's got that covered and is allowed on either the couch or bed (or preferably both), John is one happy camper.

A calm pup with a sweet disposition, John has a medium energy level and is just as excited to wiggle around and play as he is to get some napping in, and he's particularly fond of sunbathing in the yard. He loves being next to his person, and while he's not clingy, he'll follow them around like an adorable shadow and is super-pumped if he gets to sleep in bed with you.

John has excellent manners in the home, is fully house-trained and hasn't shown any destructive tendencies on sleepovers with volunteers. He already knows "sit" and "shake", and while he can be shy with new people, he warms up quickly and enjoys getting their attention. John enjoys mixing it up in playgroup with his canine friends at the shelter, and he may be able to go home with a well-matched doggie sibling.

This handsome guy would love a home that's as chill as he is and one where he'll get plenty of attention. In return, he promises to love you forever and not make a fuss about it. Come meet this great pup!
