Introducing Bartleby, a 2-year-old, house trained mix. Handsome Bartleby is the best of all the breeds, and he has adorable, pointy, Yoda-like ears to complete his look.

Bartleby loves other dogs and gets along with them. Bartleby has met dogs of all kinds in the park and always played with them in a very friendly manner. He would most likely do well in a home with other dogs. He is also friendly with kids but does not live with them.

Bartleby prefers to have his humans at home, but will lay on his bed while you are out of the house. He would prefer a pet parent who is home most of the time or can teach him how to be alone when you are gone. He loves to cuddle and be with humans. He will squirm his way into your lap and lay there for hours if you let him. He enjoys meeting new people and loves all people in general. He is super sweet and well-mannered. He just wants to love and be loved.

Bartleby hasn't had much experience on the leash and would benefit from some training. He is very smart and will soon be at leash trained in no time. He loves walks and going outside.
He doesn't need a ton of activity, but does need at least one activity every day. Bartleby loves other dogs and would enjoy the dog park. Bartleby also can entertain himself and loves playing by himself with his toys in the yard. He will toss and throw his toys around then go chase them without a human needing to be involved at all!

Bartleby will fit in well with most homes and would do really well with a family. A small yard would be ideal. He would love occasional hikes or adventures, but doesn't need that much activity to be happy. Bartleby is super loving and sweet and would really do well in any home that could be gentle and sweet with him in return.

Would you enjoy hiking and going to the dog park with Bartleby? Come meet him today!
