About Me: I came to SPCA of Texas via a cruelty case back in February. Due to my past, I can be pretty shy and timid in new situations, but I've made a lot of progress and am now super happy and wiggly whenever I see my favorite people! I am such a curious boy. My friends at the shelter think I would be a great department store greeter since I'm always at the front of my pod, ready to say hello! My good looks and charm make me a staff favorite around here.

My Dream Home: I'll need a calm, quiet home with humans over 12 please. I'm still working on my leash walking skills so a house with a yard would be ideal, but I can try a very low traffic apartment.

Dogs: Sure! I wouldn't mind having a canine sibling or two.

Medical: I have a condition called Paraphimosis- it only occurs about 25% of the time and does not seem to cause me any discomfort. Our medical team will tell you more about this when you meet me!
