*This animal is a part of our “Seniors for Seniors” program where we offer senior adopters an opportunity to adopt an eligible pet at a discounted fee.*

I’m a diamond in the rough, and I just need the right family to really help me shine! Don’t let my age fool you, I still have plenty of energy for playing and walks- in fact my walk is my favorite part of the day (except maybe breakfast and dinner). I'll always greet you with tail wags, even if you've only been gone 10 minutes. I also enjoy watching television and curling up next to you on the couch.

I definitely live up to my name, as I can be a bit of a troublemaker. I’m working on learning my manners and commands. I’m also a chewer but I’m perfectly comfortable in my crate when you’re not around. I would be very happy as an only dog- more love and attention for me! However, I could also do okay in a home with another non-dominant dog, as long as my new family is dedicated, patient, and willing to work with me, as well as dedicated to taking introductions slowly and cautiously. I was very curious about the cat at first and did chase him some, but now I’m used to him and don’t bother him at all. Since still learning my manners, no or older kids only would be best. 

If you’re ready for love, cuddles, and lots of tail wags, I’d love to meet you!
