My father recently passed away, and his three year old beagle, Bentley, is in need of a loving home. Bentley is a spayed, purebred, UKC registered beagle. My father got her when she was five months old and was unfortunately unable to house break her during the time that he owned her. However, even though she is not house broken, she is extremely loving and affectionate. She loves to clean bald heads, sit on laps, and lick faces. She tends to dominate other dogs by growling at them and taking their food. However, she is not extremely aggressive and could successfully be housed with another dog. She does also loves to get into to trouble and dig holes. However, she is not a chewer of anything but bones, treats, and chew toys. She would make a great companion to someone who is able to give her the love, time, and patience to train her correctly.
I have a 9 month old American Straffordshire Terrior / Mastiff Mix whom we have have since he was 12 weeks old. He has been through basic obedience classes and knows the basic commands of sit, down, back, here, and leave it. We does not mind bathes or long walks or days at the beach running and playing; has been great at the dog park in Medford and Ashland. Knows his name when calling him to you or getting his attention for treats.
Here the rough part he at 6-7 months has shown signs of resource guarding and fear to noises which has created tense situations and fights with my other two dogs (shepherd rottie mix and a dachshund). My thoughts are if you were to take this great dog and that the home he be your only dog. At least until you have worked with him.
Below is Stanley, he is a 7 mth old tree walker coonhound. If you google the description of a tree walker you will find Stanley, he is exactly the way the breed is defined. He has a drive to chase animals up trees, he loves to talk, and he is likely going to be able to climb a tree himself one of these days. Stanley is loving, playful, and needs a lot of exercise. He currently lives with a 5 yr old female lab mix and they play often, but he needs more focused play and training. He hasn't lived with cats, but there are many in the neighborhood and he is curious about them. Stanley would do well with a family that hunts, he would also do well in a pack of hounds. We wish he was the right fit for us, but he needs more time and attention. August--- 512.419.8255 Augustinvermont@gmail.com
Oliver is 3 years old and was born on Christmas Eve 2009. He is
neutered and up to date on shots. He is part Chihuahua, part Jack Russell. He is usually shy and a bit anxious unless he sees another dog and then he becomes aggressive. He would do best in a childless home where he is the only dog, or care would need to be taken to introduce him properly to another dog. He sleeps in my bed and likes to
nibble on a felt Santa hat every night. He spends the day in a bathroom when I am at work, and he is paper trained. On occasion, he will poop on the throw rug in front of the door if he is not noticed when he needs to go out. He needs the hair behind his ears either brushed or cut short because it is prone to getting hairballs because it is so fine. He is loveable and loyal. His full name is Sir Oliver Barclay Squibb III, only because he deserves a cool name.
He needs a home before July.
He is available in the greater Portland, Oregon area.

Emilie is a female toy fox terrier who is turning 12 this summer. She gets along well with dogs she knows, but needs time to warm up to a new dog. She has not ever been around young children, but is fine with older children and teenagers who are gentle. She likes to bark when she hears noises outside, but settles down quickly. She is afraid of thunder and lightning storms which cause her to shiver. She sometimes likes to play with her food before she eats it, tossing it up into the air, pawing at it, and barking at it. She sleeps in my bed at night and has spent the work-week hours in the bathroom where she is paper trained. If no newspaper is available, she does usually wait to go outside. She is fixed, is updated on all her shots, and does not have any health problems, although she needs her teeth cleaned. She has a microchip. Due to a financial situation and upcoming move, I am no longer able to keep her, and I really do not want to have her put down since she has some good years still in her.
She needs a home before July.
She is available in the greater Portland, Oregon area.

We adopted Bruno from Family Dogs New Life Shelter 4 years ago. We estimated him to be about 1 year when we got him. At some point before finding his way to the shelter his right back leg was broken and was not healed properly, thus that knee doesn’t bend. We had the leg x-rayed and took him to physical therapy with success. Fortunately, the leg broke before it was full grown. So it is a bit shorter than the other. This actually helps him move around quite a bit. The leg doesn’t seem to bother him nor does it slow him down!! He loves to run! He is kennel trained although he’s been sleeping on his own bed the last couple of years. He walks well on a leash, knows how to heel (although easily forgets!), doesn’t beg or eat people food, loves to cuddle, loves to wrestle with other dogs, loves the water, doesn’t dig, and loves being with people. He lives well with our cat, but if she runs outside he will chase her. Unfortunately after having our 2nd child he has become more aggressive towards other dogs. It seems to happen on and off the leash, especially if they come up to him and the kids are around. He also becomes obsessed with young children, constantly wanting to ‘play’ with them. He gets excited watching kids playing and wants to join in. He has even jumped up to lick or nip them when they are being held in their parent’s arms. This we believe is good natured he is just trying to get them to play with him, but of course, he is too big a dog for small kids to play with. He also has growled at our oldest boy when our boy would get close to Bruno, particularly when his food is on the floor, although this behavior stopped once we let our son do more with him, such as giving him treats and his dinner.
Breed: Labrador Retriever/Mix (possibly pit) Micro-chipped

Coat: Yellow,very short & smooth
Current on Vaccines
Duke is a sweet, affectionate boy who is looking for someone to love.
He NEEDS an angel to give him a chance!
History?: Lost, and nobody cared. A dog-lover saw Duke and his friend Lily (also available for adoption) running down the road in Salem, Oregon. They were both very happy to be rescued, and gladly hopped into her car. Duke’s microchip led their rescuer to a previous owner, who turned out to be in prison. Someone living at his address said he had “given the dogs away”, but they couldn’t or wouldn’t say who the owner was.
At this point no one would foster or take him, so Gun River did. Duke has received some very basic obedience training. We have worked on heel and sit and entering and exiting doorways. He is a very clean dog. The person that found Duke had him around her 4 yr. old son and he was very good with him. Duke is very good with and can be handled by my 9 year old grand daughter. Duke is a mellow boy but does need exercise. He LOVES to retrieve balls!
Duke is happy to make himself at home and take naps in my office. I have not experimented with him around other male dogs, but No cats and NO chickens. He has been with a Lily most of his life and they do well. He can easily be around my Lab girls with no problem but he is not good with females that run to him aggressively and dominate him. So he won’t take being pushed around. He is loving and sweet with people. He just needs an angel that will not care that he is older but allow him to live his life out loved! Duke appears very healthy.
Everyone loves a baby Huey, well that is Biggie. A big one-year-old puppy-like bundle of energy. Biggie is a neutered male, Red Fawn with White, very active, house trained boy. He is okay with being left alone in the home and will just curl up somewhere comfy. He walks well on a leash, which he needs plenty of, walks, play, and needs room to run and loves to ride in the care. He will only bark when bored and lonely for too long. He loves kids and playing with his toys. Again he is rambunctious so will greatly benefit from puppy classes. He was a UKC show dog as a youngster but is already ready to retire.
Biggie needs a loving home where he can just become a family member forever and probably should be the only pet. There will be a strict screening process for placement and a reasonable rehoming fee.

Scout is a rescue dog who came into our lives when he was six months old (D.O.B. 12/2/08) and as the saying goes, the rescuing went both ways. He is a Blue Heeler mix and weighs about 55 lbs. He is in excellent health, current on all vaccinations and has been neutered and micro-chipped. We are seeking a new forever home for Scout where he can blossom. He currently has a loving home but does not get the attention or exercise he deserves due our new living circumstances. He’s looking for someone who will walk him everyday and integrate him into their everyday life.
Scout arrived in not very good shape. Whatever trauma he experienced in the first few months of his life has been replaced with lots of love and tenderness but he still carries some baggage from those early days. He is very well mannered but is very fearful of strangers and other dogs.
Scout is sweet and loving to his people and loves to run and play ball and play tug-of-war with his rope. He loves his morning scratches and evening cuddles. He is well behaved with everyone he knows but he takes a while to accept new people in his life. Scout is smart, loyal, kind and compassionate. He loves the challenge of training, we wish we could give him more time to train, play and socialize, but our new schedules don’t allow for it. He has been a wonderful part of our family, and he will make a wonderful part of a new one.
Scout would best be suited for a family with no children or grown children and lots of room to run and play, and we are committed to finding him a home that will love and accept him and give him their all.
If you are interested in meeting Scout, please email email@example.com. There is a negotiable re-homing fee.

Meet Maddie! She will be five this month and is looking for a new forever home. She is a black lab / German Shepard mix with an all blue tongue, so there’s something else in her too. She weighs 65-70 lbs and is physically healthy and current on all vaccinations. She is also spayed, micro-chipped, and has health insurance through Banfield that could be transferred. I am currently seeking a new owner for Maddie that she can blossom with and will commit to her health, well-being, and happiness. She currently has a loving home but does not get the attention or exercise she deserves due owner’s health issues. She’s looking for someone who will walk her everyday, integrate her into their everyday life and take her on adventures. She is very well mannered but does have some behavioral issues that need continued work. Specifically jumping up when greeting people, reactivity in car and at window with other dogs, and territorial aggression with some, not all, dogs. She knows sit, stay, shakes on both sides, lays down, sits pretty, come, and scavenger hunt.
Maddie is super sweet and loving to her people and loves sleeping in bed with you and morning cuddles. She is very athletic and agile. She loves running off leash, jumps high, and even climbs trees. She has lived with other dogs and a cat before and typically establishes herself as alpha. She has been in one ugly dog fight over perceived territorial threat. She will continue to need careful canine socialization and work on her reactivity in the car and at the window. She is very loyal to her people. She does pretty good off leash and loves hiking, camping, and going to the river/beach. She even sits in owner’s cockpit when flat water kayaking. All in all, Maddie is a wonderful dog that needs more attention and interaction than she currently gets. Her owner is committed to finding her a home that will love and accept her and give her their all.
> If you are interested in meeting Maddie, please email sharyn80@Gmail.com and include a description of what Maddie’s home life would be like and who all she would be living with. There will be a negotiable re-homing fee and would like information on who would be her veterinarian.Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
This is Rita ! She is about 4 years old and 55lbs. She is Spayed, Chipped, Potty – Crate and Leash Trained. Rita has a long sad history. My son found her as a puppy 3 years ago. As he had 2 dogs already he actually gave her to a coworker. Fate would bring her back to us as Rita was found last December emaciated and dirty in SE Portland. The microchip had thankfully never been changed and my son was called! Rita has been living with me in Portland while we got her healthy. We have gotten her UTD on all shots and back to a normal weight. She is a really sweet girl who loves to chew on her Kong and chase the ball at the dog park. Belly rubs are as good as riding in the car with her head out the window. She is currently living with a dog and a cat. She is good with older pet savvy children and is very polite. She is looking for her forever home. If you are interested please email Stacey@gseor.com
Leo is approximately 18months old. He is UTD on vaccines and is neutered. Leo is crate trained and does well on leash. He is super playful and loves other dogs and kids…just a big goof! Would love to see Leo go to a home where he will be loved forever. Leo knows sit, kennel, wait and we are working on down, stay, shake, and leave it.
If you are interested in Leo please email Ashley at email@example.com
Let me tell you about our dog Rex. He is a lab/german sheppard mix, blonde in color, 85 lbs. He is 6 years old but still can play like a puppy. He is very well trained both on and off leash. Rex gets along with other dogs has no trouble with cats. He has been around horses, ducks, geese and has never been allowed to chase them. Rex enjoys being in the house with us, going on walks, chasing the ball, he rides in the car without any trouble. Basically he loves being with his family. We rescued Rex four years ago for our son who has developmental disabilities. They get along famously and Rex has always been concerned for his safety. We are looking for a new home for Rex because our son will be moving into a group home situation in the near future and won’t be able to take Rex with him. If you would like more information about Rex or would like to meet him you can either e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call Janette 503 694 5499.
Name: Olive is her given name, we call her Ollie but if she feels fancy she prefers Olivia Newton Dog Mellencamp
Age: estimated at a spry 8 years old
Breed: Black lab
Reason for new home: owner (me) doesn’t have enough time. It sounds awful and Ollie really is a saint
but I’m a single mother of a very active kindergartener, am self employed, and have a lot of commitments and Ollie isn’t getting all the attention she deserves. We got her from OHS about 2 years ago when there were 2 adults managing the responsibilities and things have changed.
A little about Ollie: She is the sweetest! All she wants to do is love! Her favorite hobbies include fetch at the park, napping, eating, and following you with her big happy face. She is house trained, and gets along with EVERYBODY- cats, dogs, kids, delivery people- you name it. She likes hikes, swimming at the river, long walks, ear rubs and knows a decent amount of commands. She can sit, stay, lay down, wait, walk with out a leash, does fine at the vet or groomer and rides in the car nicely. Her only ‘fault’ (aka duty as a dog) is she likes to get in the trash if its accessible and occasionally she whines when she misses you. Ollie would do great with someone who has the time to make sure she gets a walk in everyday and a trip to the park at least a couple times a week. She is not a high maintenance dog but she does need some help if you’re expecting her to jump high like in and out of a truck ( a car is fine). Ollie is really a gem of a girl and deserves the best.
If you are interested in Olive please email email@example.com
Age: 9 years old
Breed: Lab mix
Weight: 75-80 lbs
Max is a very loving 8 year old black lab border collie mix who needs a new home. We moved and this home is just a little too small for him. Max likes, sleeping, laying on your couch and cuddling, playing with toys, going on walks, running in the yard, (so you need a fenced yard) licking your face whenever possible, getting loves and kisses. He dislikes Thunder, lighting, fireworks and other loud noises. He likes to howl when he hears sirens and when another dogs howls to. He does have some allergies but we just get dog food that is allergy free. He is neutered and current on all vaccines. If you would like more information or to adopt Max please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
13 years old
Fox terrier /Chihuahua
We need to find Micro a new family because we have a toddler and a baby on the way and he does not
do well with younger children, he has done well around older children and other dogs. We are currently living with friends in a house that is being foreclosed on and do not know how long we will have until we have to move. We are unsure of our future living arrangements. Micro is older but can still be very playful and affectionate; he almost always carries a toy around with him. We are sad to say goodbye to Micro, he has been a part of our family his whole life, but we feel that he will be happier in another household. He deserves a good family, we love him very much. We want what’s best for Micro. Thank you.
If you are interested in Micro please email email@example.com
Last summer I rescued a male pit from a Los Angeles shelter.
I brought him home to Oregon to live with my family of 5, (3 kids) cat and deaf pit (7 yrs old).
As puppies do, Rev nipped at my son once, and he became fixated on him and how much he did not like him (my son is now 6 and has autism). After that I had to keep them separated because I would catch my son hitting Rev with a stick, or chasing him around the yard and just plain being mean to him. Rev is a sweet heart and has had some training with Cindy at Pawsitive pets. He is a puppy and of course is getting better about not chewing everything in sight. He is amazing with my kids (especially the 2 yr. old and him, they have a special relationship). I love him and he is such a cuddler, does not bark (like my deaf dog), and really just loves positive attention. I began looking for a home for him in the fall and found one that we thought was a good fit. Sadly they returned Rev to me on Sunday. I was so sad, but he said he would take Rev to a shelter, so I just couldn’t do it. I have a full house currently and would love to keep him if it weren’t for my son’s fixation with him. My son is currently in school so it is easier to keep them separated, but I want Rev to be a safe and wonderful environment. The man of the house said that Rev growled at him twice, and he was concerned (because he has 2 kids 10 & 7), though we had never had any problems with him. After they adopted Rev from me, they also brought in another puppy (less than a month later) I did not feel that was a smart thing since Rev was not settled there yet. They liked to wrestle with the pups and play a bit rough, as I was told Rev “attacked” the other dog.
Like I said, we had Rev for 5-6 months with no problem. If you can help me out at all, I am looking for a foster or forever home for him. You should meet him, he is a sweetheart.
If you are interested in adopting or fostering Rev, contact Grace at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mojo is a sweet, two year old boy who is boxer/lab mix. He is very energetic and loves to romp but he is also happy to snuggle and loves to sleep with his head on top of you. He gets along with other dogs, and has never been around cats. He has not really been around small children so a home without those would be best. He loves to kiss, ride in the car, and play. He is good on a leash, knows some basic commands, and is potty trained as well as crate trained. He has been neutered, micro-chipped and is up to date on all of his shots. He really just needs his forever home.
Yes, Mojo has his own album on Facebook:

Abby is an obedience trained 7 year old English Shepherd girl. She is trained through AKC Novice, does well with calm dogs and cats. She would do best in a quiet home, as she is suspicious of strangers and happiest with people she already knows. She has a lot of spunk for 7 (no soreness even after long hikes), loves belly rubs and pets, and with her obedience work she can go with you anywhere that dogs are allowed (though she’s happiest in lower-traffic settings). You can read more about her and watch a video of her at work and at play at http://www.nesr.info/adoption-english-shepherd-dog.html#Abby and see more photos at http://www.facebook.com/AdoptMeAbby

Name: Lucy (Lucy-Goosey)
Age: 18-20 months
Looking for a super loving, eager to please, cuddly and energetic girl to be your BFF? Well I am your girl! My name is Lucy and I have had a rough start to my short life, but I am very resilient and will make the right person SUPER happy! I’ve been picked on pretty badly before my mom got me and as a result have some fear based aggression issues with other dogs…I also tend to be way too rough with little animals like cats, so I really need to be the only apple of your eye. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to play and run around in the yard, but I can get protective of my toys (which isn’t a problem if I don’t have to share them).
My current mom loves me so, so much, but she has another puppy that I just can’t get used to. Mom also doesn’t have a very big yard and most of my exercise and play happens on walks…well, because I was so beat up before my mom got me, I can get pretty worked up on the leash when I see other dogs. My mom says that I need a great big yard and a very experienced new mom or dad, because I can be a handful and need continued help to work through my issues. I am working with my mom and a trainer to help me get used to controlling myself on walks, but mom says that my new family needs to be willing to continue this work with me.
I am already spayed and am in good health, but some of my health history is vague since I haven’t had the best/most responsible owners before my current mom. I know how to sit, stay, and lay down, and we are working on coming when I’m called. I am also crate trained, potty trained, and I wait politely for my food until I’m told I can have it. I am really motivated by affection and food, so I’m ready to please!!

9 years old
Jack came into our life in 2007 as Jackpot from the Portland human society. We took him home because he immediately showed affection towards both Jen and I. He is part German Shepard with a lot of other influences and he weighs 44lbs. He has a lot of the characteristics of a cattle dog. Yes, lots of energy, needs a job and is as smart as they come. He is 9 years old, but has shown no signs of slowing down.
The first six months of our relationship had a lot of trial and error. The end result was to walk him once or twice a day and if we were not home to keep him outside in our backyard. We installed a six foot privacy fence that has a two foot shelf facing in, to stop him from jumping over the fence. He also has access to shelter through the back door to our basement that is unfinished and has nothing of value. Unfortunately despite all this trial error we still had to find a solution for Jack’s separation anxiety. His history was described as convoluted and had multiple owners before us. The vet recommended Prozac and that has been part of his daily routine since 2008. That is the challenging part of Jack. On a good note, he is a sweet dog that is loyal and obedient. He loves hiking, cuddles and lots of attention.
Our family includes a toddler, a new born, my wife and I.
Please consider Jack if you have experience with dogs that suffer from separation anxiety. He is sweet and loved very much by us but with the arrival of our new born we are stretched too thin to be the good owners we once were.
If you are interested in adopting Jack please email John at email@example.com
Charley is great dog. We rescued him in 2008 from the Orange County Animal Shelter in California 4 1/2 years ago when he was about six months old (Born Sept 2007). He’s neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his vaccines. At that time, he needed a lot of behavior training and went through “dog boot camp” for a few months. His behavior problems included biting, aggressive barking, and jumping. We were able to resolve these problems almost 100% but after our move into a small apartment in Portland in 2010, his behavior changed once again and we needed to start over. We used a local dog trainer to help and were able to get our old Charley back–most of the time.. Then we moved once again, into a house with a yard this time, and started a family. We prepared Charley for the new baby and he seemed ok with him up at first. Then a few months ago when our baby started crawling, Charley became somewhat aggressive and growled and barked at him. We don’t leave them alone together and we are always keeping watch. Now that our baby is walking it is getting harder to keep them apart, so Charley spend his time in our basement or outside. This breaks my heart. Charley cries and barks, but we can’t take our chances. We are teaching our son to be gentle with Charley and not chase or pull his hair but you know he’s just a child. He can’t quite understand yet and we are afraid one day Charley might bite him. Charley is much better around older kids (5 and up) and is actually very happy to play with them. I just don’t know if we can wait another 4 or so years for our son to grow–for Charley to stay. The decision to surrender him is a hard one but we have to put our child’s safety first. We cannot afford another trainer and we just don’t have the time to “work” on him because our time is limited now. We know Charley will thrive in another home. He is loyal, cuddly, and loves being by your side. He loves catching tennis balls, going for long walks/jogs/bike rides, the beach and snow, and playing tug o war. He is not a fan of skateboarders (the noise of the wheels scare him), does not like other big dogs (unless they are puppies or smaller than him), can be food/bone aggressive (if he thinks you are taking it away he will growl), while on a leash he pulls but after a few tugs he relaxes, he will bark on a lease and even lunge at other dogs, and does not like cats. He is fine with car rides, dry dog food, no allergies, and baths and grooming, vet appts, and is in tip top health. If there is a childless couple looking for a great dog, he’s the one. Or even a single person too. Male or Female.
We have a blog about him www.charlesjpup.com if you want to meet him.
Please consider him and let me know if you can take him. Thank you for your time.
Breed: Not positive but said to be a Chow Chow and Rottweiler mix

Cutie is still a young dog willing to learn and loves to play. I taught her many basic tricks such as sit, lay down shake and etc. She’s very willing to learn, and needs a loving owner to be patient with her. She loves to play tug of war or keep away. She’s very energetic so be ready to play with her. With all her energy she will lay down and relax with you. I’ve kept her healthy with check ups, shes also spayed. I’ve fed her only top of the line food to also keep her healthy and feeding her some raw meat. Shes about 80lbs. She is a bit of a guard dog at times but welcomes any friends. If you are looking forward to Cutie being a member of your family I only ask that you will have time for her over excited greets and to put time into her. Please email me if you have any questions or in interested.
Hi, I’m P’nut, I’m just a little thing, I weigh 6lbs and I am a cuddler/love bug/snuggler, but I also get revved up when we play fetch with cool squeaky toys, when I hear that squeak I’m at attention, my ears perk straight up and I’m ready to run. I’m also a darn good watch dog too; nothing gets past these big ol’ ears. I don’t do so well around cats, those cute little furry things are just too fun to chase and harass same when I see a squirrel or a bird flitting about, guess it’s the min pin side of me coming out. I learn pretty fast too, I’m treat motivated, so if you have food, I’ll do anything for the treat. I’m house trained too. What a great catch I am huh? Won’t you give me a home for Christmas?
If you are interested in me please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 360.449.2638
I am trying to find a new home for my dog Mr. Mr. is a seven year old pit-mix. He is about 70 lbs. I adopted him from a pound in Phoenix when he was 3 months old. I haven’t been able to figure out what he’s mixed with, but a lot of people have commented that he looks like he’s pit and greyhound, as he is very leggy. But anyone’s guess is as good as mine. Mr. is a very sweet dog and is fully potty trained. He is not otherwise trained, other than knowing the command “sit.” So he may be a great dog for someone who’s interested in training. He is also a very loyal dog and is a great watch dog. He would do best in a home with no cats and no children, as he tends to go after cats, and may be too high energy for small children.
It’s really, really important to me that Mr. find a new, awesome, loving home. I would love to keep him, but my current living and financial situation dictates otherwise. I will also be starting graduate school in the spring and working full time as well. I am currently living in an apartment, and me being away for more than 15 hours a day really doesn’t seem right for a dog Mr.’s size and energy level. A home with a yard would be ideal or at least with someone that will be around during the day to walk and run him quite a bit.
I have a bed, blankets, and bowls for Mr. that would go to his new owners with him.
Please contact Christine at 480-200-2894 (please leave a message because I usually can’t answer my phone during the day while I’m at work) or email@example.com with any further questions or if you’re interested in meeting Mr. to see if he would be a good fit.
We have the sweetest three-year-old Lab/Australian Shepherd mix named Foster. He absolutely loves people and children (our children are 10 and 13, and he has been with us since he was a six-week-old puppy). He wants nothing more than to be attached to the hip of anybody who wants to give him pets, hugs and attention. He gets along great with other dogs, but cats are another story. I don’t think he means cats any harm, but he certainly thinks they are fun to chase (same goes with squirrels).
The problem with Foster is entirely due to us — his family. When we got him, our world was very different than it is right now and he received all the attention he deserves and loves. Unfortunately, however, our circumstances have changed. My travel has increased for work and he is without “his people” for a minimum of 12 hours per day. We would love to find him a home where he is with people that are around consistently.
He is neutered and completely up to date on all of his shots. He does have a right rear knee issue that will cause him to favor that leg if he is left to run off leash. Accordingly, we give him walks on leash only and the knee has not appeared to bother him for quite awhile. We would love to find him a new, happy home.
