Dreamboat lives up to his name, but only with his closest human friends. While Dreamboat can take a while to warm up to new people, once he does, he allows pets and even gives kisses to his favorite humans. Dogs on the other hand are an entirely different story. Dreamboat LOVES his doggie friends and is a super energetic and rowdy playmate with them. He zooms all over the play yard, mixing it up and partying hard, then jumps into the kiddie pool to cool off when he's all tuckered out. He's a very entertaining little guy to watch.

Dreamboat was surrendered with 5 other dogs and has amazing doggy social skills. He's able to give and receive appropriate corrections even when meeting new dogs, and he spent a few weeks on sleepovers with a volunteer who has two larger dogs (70lb pittie and 30lb terrier). Although they're bigger than the other little dogs he was used to, after two days he was engaging in full out play with them too. Dreamboat has also proven to be fully house-trained and does great left home alone, both free to roam or in his crate.

Dreamboat would love a low traffic home with at least one doggie friend to help show him the ropes. In return, he promises to be a well-behaved little companion and keep you entertained with his antics. And with a little time, we're sure he'll be giving you kisses too. Come meet him!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

This pup is currently located at our Tarrytown Dog Adoption Center (3118 Windsor Road). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 12:00PM-6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Ask to speak with a staff member about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
