If you're looking for the most huggable dog ever, look no further than this handsome boy, Salamander. You won't be able to say no to his adorable puppy eyes begging you to pet him as he falls back for a belly rub. Salamander is friendly with everyone he meets and sometimes jumps up in excitement. He is still working on containing his enthusiasm for new friends. He loves attention and is always begging to cuddle so only serious snugglers need apply. Salamander will make the perfect pandemic partner.

Salamander falls in love easily and misses his humans when they leave. He wants to let them know how much he misses them while they're away. He will need some training on how to relax quietly while humans are gone. Salamander doesn't currently live with dogs but is very friendly and wants to play with any he sees out on walks. A dog companion could be a great way to help Salamander get used to being home without humans. He hasn't been around children, so he would do best in an adult-only household.

Sweet Salamander makes an excellent house guest as he is already house-trained! He prides himself on always making it outside and having no accidents in the house. He does get a little too excited over food and will try to grab scraps from you when you're not looking. Kind of like how you steal french fries from a friend.

Salamander loves his walks as long as you let him stop and smell the roses, literally! He loves getting out and investigating all of the neighborhood smells. He is quite strong though, so he needs someone equally strong to hold the leash. Salamander comes when he hears his name and knows the command, 'sit'. He is excited for you to teach him more. Don't miss out on a lifetime of unlimited hugs and doggy love with Salamander. Come meet this loveable pup today!
