Neutered Male
6 months
I am nervous meeting new people, but folks who are patient and gentle, who talk sweetly to me, will soon see me coming out of my shell.
The adoption floor with its noise and hustle and bustle makes me feel a bit anxious, so I am helping out upstairs with office work, where it's a little quieter.  I'd be happy to interrupt my busy work day to meet you if you might be interested in adopting me.  Just ask a staff person. 
A person with shy dog experience is a plus. I'm quite the cuddler once I get to know you. I really enjoy lots of lap time getting loved and snuggled. I hope you don't mind my snoring when I am sleeping.  Dakin staff thinks I sound like a pig. I also enjoy playing with toys and people. I bet once I get to know you I would love to play hide and seek. I love to sniff and find things.
Puppies are a lot of work. I will need crate and housetraining, chew toy training, and a whole lot more. If you have the time and energy for me, I bet I will grow into a great family dog. So how about we meet? I know you won't be disappointed when you see what a sweet boy I am.
