Wesson is a goofy snuggle bug ready to be your best friend! He loves to give hugs when you get home or just when he feels like it, and he's just as happy to snuggle up with you on the couch for your latest binge sesh as he is to go on a walk / run / bike ride / adventure. He LOVES toys and is very good about only playing / chewing on things that are his.

Wesson is potty trained, does well home alone, knows how to sit on command and use the doggy doors, gets along with my cat and other dogs he has interacted with, and he gets along with kids. He's not always a big fan of new people (especially groomers and vets) but he'd love to continue working on that with you!

He would love a home with people to snuggle, a cozy bed to sleep in, and a fenced in backyard to do zoomies in.

Wesson can be shy at first, but once he warms up to you is the sweetest, gentlest boy. Come meet this snuggler today!
Come meet your new best friend
