Could you use a detective to help you find your missing valuables? Then come meet Josiah! This doggie version of Sherlock Holmes uses his big nose to sniff out clues to finding all his treats, toys, and even his dog buddies. And he has a blast doing it.

This gentle, lovable boy is also excited when he finds clues to meeting new people, hoping to get scratches behind his ears and full-body pets and cuddles from them. In exchange, he's happy to give them his undivided attention. And he loves playing tug-o-war with his bones and hide-and-seek with his treats. A lazy boy, he loves going for walks, then he's happy to nap. He's a house-trained dude who's glad to snooze in his crate. And he loves car rides, so will be happy to help run errands.

Josiah will be happy in a quiet home with a big soft bed or soft carpet to rest on. He's a patient boy who will be happy sharing love, warmth, and attention with people he loves. Come let him
know you're ready for his hugs!
Come meet your new best friend
