I'm a very sweet, smart boy who craves attention. I just came back from a training academy were I learned many, many things! I would do best in a very active home as a running or hiking partner. People say my place command is solid! In fact I think it's probably my favorite thing! I knows sit, down, heel, and I can even auto sits on my heel. I excelled in my clicker tricks and I know paw, wave, bow, and hide in a box. My favorite treats are hot dogs, chicken, liver (chicken and beef) and zukes peanut butter treats. I love to chew and I enjoy chewing on the cow cheek chew my trainer purchased for me as well as the nylabone. I seem to be dog selective but with proper introduction I will do great with another dog that matches my play energy. I sure enjoy a game of chase and tug. I like to chase lizards and squirrels. I hope I get to go to a great home that can give me lots of belly rubs. I am also off leash trained and passed my advanced obedience test.

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
