Dasher is a smart, loving companion who will adore his owners unconditionally. If you're looking for a dog who loves to go on walks and enjoy the outdoors, but also could spend a full day napping at home, he could be the perfect pup for you!

It takes this boy a little to get comfortable with new people, but he'll soon approach them for petting, and then becomes their love bug. He prefers slower introductions to new dogs.

Dasher has great manners at home. He is perfectly potty trained and sleeps through the night without making a peep. He only hops onto the furniture when invited, and does well when he's home alone (although he may grab any food in the kitchen he can reach). Dasher also sits and stays on command and is currently working on his leash training, which is coming along well! He occasionally pulls on the leash when he gets distracted or smells something, but a quick "no fixes that.

Treat-motivated and eager to please, Dasher would love to show you how smart and fun he is. Come meet this handsome guy and follow his antics on Instagram @darling.dasher!
