Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 1 year
Size: Large
Location: Dallas
ABOUT ME: I came to the SPCA of Texas as an owner surrender, and life's been a bit confusing since then. I used to be so frightened of everything, but I've already made a lot of progress. My friends here say that I need to gain some confidence, so I'm looking for a calm household where I can blossom!

DREAM HOME: The real world is scary, so I'd like my own backyard where I can play in peace!

KIDS: I need a home without young kids, preferably adults only but maybe older teens 12 years old and up would work.

DOGS: I'd prefer to be the only doggo in the home, but I'm willing to meet your calmer dogs.

SPECIAL NOTE: Eligible adopters get to take me on a test drive through trial adoption!

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
