All of the animals posted on our site have been temperament tested. While not all are in the immediate area, once we have processed and approved your application, we will move the dog to our adoptive area for you to meet, greet and hopefully adopt. Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant.

So young and full of life, Howard is just coming out of puppyhood and is searching for the family or individual to whom he will give his loyal shepherd heart. Happy, outgoing and friendly, he would like to bound through life at your side. Intelligent and ready to learn, this big puppy would do best with an active family. He has the energy needed to keep up with you if you jog, hike, camp, run, or distance walk. He is ready to spread his simple joy in each new day to everyone around him. He is interested in everything. A really good boy! Can you see him right there, at your side?
A SPECIAL NOTE TO YOU FROM HIS FOSTER: He is learning daily and has learned to heel on leash, sitting when you stop. He is so loving and really wants to be loved. He is an eager puppy who has mastered housebreaking manners and playing fetch (preferably 24/7) He is still a bit exuberant and is starting to learn jumping up is not okay. He loves going in the car and just watches out the window. A recent trip to Pet Smart was a success and he made lots of friends. At home he is dog and cat friendly and not food aggressive just an eager eater. He does well in training if you have treats in your pocket! He is good with children in public but may frighten little guys with his jumping. He so wants to run and play and would love a big fenced yard and friends to play with.
