Another shelter was caring for me before I came to Animal Humane Society to find a home.
I love to be busy, both physically and mentally. I'll enjoy seeing and doing things with my new family, and prefer an active household. Energetic dogs like me need a companion who can provide adequate mental stimulation and exercise, such as running, hiking, or playing Frisbee.
I like playing with toys and enjoy other busy interactions. Playful dogs like me enjoy a good game of fetch or just quietly chewing on a stuffed animal. No matter which toy I choose, I want my new family to join me in the fun.
I’m very energetic, and can be jumpy and mouthy when I get excited. I will need exercise, mental stimulation, and obedience training to provide appropriate outlets for my energy and work on manners.
I don’t like to share valuable items or my food with other people or pets and have trouble when items are taken away from me. I will need my family to manage this behavior.
I have been treated for heartworm disease. In order to heal, I cannot have any heavy exercise for two months following my treatment. I may require medication once I go home.
Don’t forget about me! I’ve been waiting for a new home for a while. The staff and volunteers know just how special I am. I could be a great pet if you give me a chance. Please take a moment to get to know me — we might be a perfect match!
