Want to get a dog, but hate having to take them for walks? Then you should meet Junior. Junior is really in no hurry to get anywhere, preferring to chill in the backyard instead of going on those annoying and tedious walks around the neighborhood. "That's really just dumb and completely unnecessary. Stupid, even," says Junior. A relaxing day of naps, listening to soft music and chilling with his people are definitely more his style.

Shy and gentle, easy-going and low maintenance, Junior has been on several extended sleepovers with volunteers and proved to be a house-trained and well-behaved companion. He's still learning how this beloved family dog thing works, but he's curious about everything, he loves being pet, he's a big fan of toys, and he really enjoys hanging out on the balcony. And though he's clearly not fond of taking walks, he does just fine on car rides.

Junior would love a quieter home to match his low key personality and one with people who will help him build his confidence and blossom into the loving (but still no walk-taking) companion he's destined to be. If you think you can handle all that, come meet this sweet guy!
Come meet your new best friend
