ABOUT ME: I came to the shelter as a stray and the staff here has taken great care of me so far! My background prior to coming to the shelter is a bit of a mystery but I am bundle of love and fun who enjoys getting to go out on walks.

FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "He is a goofball, he has no problem running around the couch, your bed and plopping his butt right on top of your face thinking he's the size of a lap dog. He is a very loving and sweet dog when it comes to his owners or human visitors. "

DREAM HOME: I am looking for a home that has a yard with secure fencing that would allow me a space to run around play, under your supervision of course!

DOGS: No Thank you! I will be the only dog you need in your life and home. I do have a bit of an attitude with other dogs and have some reactivity when I see other dogs so I would not be the dog you bring to a dog park and you will need to bring me for walks in places that I won't be overwhelmed by lots of other dogs walking around.
