He is a goofy boy who thinks he is a lap dog. He wants to go everywhere with you.  He is good on a leash, but a little shy in new surroundings and around new dogs and people.   He likes to explore with his mouth.  He is still a pup and gives small shepherd/heeler nips, we are working on not nipping.  He loves to play with his foster brothers and loves long walks.  When I get home from work , we go on at least a 2-mile walk.   He does very well on a leash.  After our walk, Poe still has energy and all of us dogs play for a while.   Poe goes in his kennel at bedtime and sleeps quietly all night. He is a sweet, playful pup and I love h ow his tongue always hangs out of his mouth.  If you want a pup that will keep you active, but also likes your lap, fill out an application and get to know me better!


Poe is from a reservation in South Dakota. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
