Available Dogs SHADOW (18-031)
SHADOW (18-031) is a very exuberant 10-month old pup who loves everyone and everything. His favorite activities are chasing his frisbee and frolicking with butterflies, often simultaneously. He is petite and weighs 52 pounds. Shadow would do best in a home with a fenced yard where someone can be with him most of the day. He is very bright and needs regular exercise and mental simulation, and his high drive and desire to please make him an excellent candidate for agility, tracking, or nose work. He is good with other dogs but his intense play style may not suit all dogs. He is good with cats. Because of his energy level, any children in the home should be over the age of 10 years. Shadow pulls on a leash and can get nervous when riding in a car. Formal training with a positive reinforcement instructor is a requirement of his adoption. He has made tremendous progress in his foster home and should excel at class. Shadow will need an experienced owner who can create a predictable environment, anticipate behavior, use calming signals and positive redirection. Shadow will make you laugh, will amaze you with his ability to learn and will gently try to become a lap dog during snuggle time. He is a very special pup who will continue to blossom in the right home.
