Featured Pet of the Month

My name is Muddles and I am an 80 pound, 2-year-old shepherd mix, but I actually play more like a puppy. My family never came to pick me up in the shelter , but that is ok because my foster mom said that she will find me a great new family. I am housetrained, crate and leash trained. I love to go for walks and jogs. I also have learned how to run by a bike – that is fun!!! I do need exercise daily.
I know how to sit, down, shake, high five and I am working very hard on stay but that is a tough one. At night, I can sleep on your bed, your floor or in a crate – wherever you want me to. When you leave for the day and crate me, I might bark for about 15 minutes only because I miss you but then I will settle down.
I do like to play with other dogs but I will verbally let them know when I am done. As far as cats – please introduce me slowly so I can get used to them.
So what are you waiting for??? ADOPT ME!!!

He is being fostered by a 501C3 rescue. His adoption fee is $350 which includes a general exam, rabies, distemper and Bordetella shots as well as neuter and microchip. Sorry, no out of state adoptions. Serious inquiries only. To meet our dogs, we require that an application is filled out.
