Poe is paws-itively precious, garnering appreciative glances and attention from every person he passes. Sweet, social and snuggly, he loves greeting his fosters each morning by leaping onto the bed and licking their faces before settling down for some quality cuddle time. He also loves sitting on his foster mom’s lap during the day and is truly happiest simply being in the same room as her.
Percolating with puppyish enthusiasm and energy, he enjoys going for walks, walking well on his leash unless he’s distracted, playing tug-o-war, chase and keep away with his Golden Retriever foster friend, and especially enjoys frisking about with him at the dog park. When he’s extremely excited, this agile little athlete has the ability to jump into the air like a goat, keeping his fosters in stitches!
Initially shy with new people, he prefers to sniff them before permitting them to pet him, and after being properly introduced to new dogs, once he relaxes, he’s at ease in their company as well. Fond of being brushed and playing fetch, taking car rides and chewing up toys, but not fond of baths or of being alone, he’s motivated by affection and food, loves all treats, and currently knows “sit”, “down” (to get off the bed), and “no.”
Now, Poe’s paw-fect home is preferably one with another confident, playful dog, older children, and loving adopters to ease his separation anxiety, continue his socialization with people and hone his leash, crate and housetraining skills, including his commands, in exchange for a lifetime of his precious loyalty and love.
Poe is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. To meet or adopt Poe, fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.
