Rumple! This sweet boy loves meeting new people - and he wants their cuddles. Loving on his human friends is a favorite thing to do, but he also loves taking naps. He will nap in your lap, on the couch, in the sun. You pick, he'll nap.

Rumple is energetic when he's not napping. He loves going for leash walks. He is still working on perfecting his leash skills and he hasn't seen a cat he didn't want to chase. He's working on loving his crate for those times he can't be with the ones he loves. He has made good progress on his house-training and has solid basic obedience!

Rumple will love an active and affectionate home with dog-experienced parents who can give him tons of love and attention and continue his training. He makes a great running buddy, according to his last foster. He gets along well with kids; he just may bowl them over for cuddles. Come meet this easy-going love bug today!

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.
