With his unique coloring, big floppy ears and pretty eyes, Pigeon is one handsome pup. While he's not crazy about being at the shelter, once he's out of that environment, he's able to relax and becomes a whole different dog.

When Pigeon is in his comfort zone, he's equal parts goofball and cuddle bug. He often gets a case of the zoomies, running around the yard with his ears and tongue flopping around. Then when he's all tuckered out, he just wants to hang out with his person, snuggling and giving sweet kisses. He loves being pet and makes the cutest happy face with his eyes closed and tongue hanging out.

Pigeon gets very excited about ice and he LOVES big soft toys like teddy bears. He absolutely adores his stuffed animals, and he'll bring them to his person as if he's introducing his baby to them. He also goes to playgroup at the shelter with dogs that have a softer play style, and he's generally friendly when meeting new people.

This good-natured pup is looking for a chill home where he can continue to blossom and show off what a sweetheart he is. In return, he promises to keep you laughing and love you forever. Come meet him!
