You must be a pre-screened adopter to spend time with me.
See the About Adopting page to fill out an application ahead of time or stop by the shelter!

Hello, Spuds! How are you today?
"I'm doing well, I just wish it was warm enough to play outside longer!"

What brought you to the shelter?
"I came in because my owner no longer was able to care for me. I've been looking for my forever family longer than any dogs here, I just don't understand why no one has chosen me yet."

Well, I can only speak for myself, but you seem like a very sweet, happy, and goofy guy!

"Thanks! I try to be on my best behavior when people walk by, I tend to wiggle with excitement and bark asking to take me out...maybe that scares people sometimes."

Do you have certain requirements for your forever home?

"I LOVE people, but I don't get along well with other dogs. I've tried, but it just never works out. Which means I have to be the only canine companion in your home. That also means I won't be able to go to dog parks and you'll have to be prepared if we should meet another dog when we go for walks. I think I will succeed the most with someone who has had dogs before though, and preferably high-energy or stubborn dogs. A person with breed similar breed knowledge is going to help me out in the long run. I also have to go to a home with children that are 12 and older. I just want to be the center of your world and your only child. The last thing is I must have a fenced yard because I was an escape artist in my previous home."

Are you more of a treat guy or toy guy?
"I actually really like both. I'm very gentle with taking treats and love kongs stuffed with peanut butter. I tend to be destructive with certain toys, but I enjoy a good bone or kong!" 

Do you have a favorite place to be scratched?
"Yes, I do! I LOVE the butt scratchies. I even do a little dance sometimes if you get the right spot." 

Can you complete this sentence? I wish I had a friend with whom I could share ______.
"walks with. I love walks and I've been told I walk great on a leash. I just wish I could have a home so I'm able to go for walks more often!"

What is your favorite season?
"I love fall. I get cold easily when it's this cold out and with lots of snow on the ground. I'm still up for being outside, I just love to run and play and fall is a much more comfortable temperature!"

What's your favorite way to relax?

"I love snuggling up in blankets after a walk. Being with my person on the couch with a snack and tons of soft blankets would be my favorite."

Is there anything else you'd like to mention to your potential adopters before I go?
"I'd like to add that I'm neutered, microchipped, frontlined, received a rabies vaccination, and started on other vaccinations. I've had a nail trim, but I'm not super fond of them so you might need to have that done by my vet. Otherwise, please come meet me! Even if you're just slightly interested. I know I have some requirements, but as long as you meet them I will be a great boy. See you soon!"
