  • This boy is all about people! He’s so gentle and sweet, sitting for affection and leaning into you. We suspect he’d do OK with mannerly children. He’d prefer to be your only dog. He’s well-mannered and quite lovely – a great dog for a family!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
