  • This adorable guy is all about people. In fact, he so thrives off of being with people that he’s already showing signs of kennel stress in the chaotic, lonely shelter environment. He’s very sweet and fun and is a total ham! He has no concept of his size and thinks he’s a lap dog. We suspect he would be OK with children, keeping in mind he has no clue about how big he is. He was very amped with dogs in the shelter environment, so would do best as your only dog at this point. He’d start to thrive in a home as part of 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 into 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.
