This handsome guy is Shaker. He is lovingly referred to by his foster mom as a shadow because he follows her around everywhere. If she is out of his sight, Shaker will find her to check on her.
Shaker lives in a foster home with other dogs, and in addition to being friendly to his canine foster siblings, he is good with older children. He has not encountered young children or cats in his foster home.
Outside, Shaker takes his job of "critter control officer" seriously. He keeps an eye on squirrels, chipmunks, bunnies, and birds. He also loves to chase tennis balls! His foster mom says that it's a joy to watch Shaker outside. When he's not chasing something, Shaker is calm and has a gentle nature.
Shaker is healthy and has recently had a dental cleaning. He is well behaved at the vet and does fine in the car, although he needs encouragement to get in. He is afraid of thunder and fireworks, so he needs a gentle human to comfort him during those times.
When his foster family is away, Shaker has earned free rein of the house. All in all, he is one of those easy keepers. Sweet Shaker is ready to meet his Forever Family, so if you have room in your home and your heart (and maybe a few extra tennis balls) for this charmer, please contact his case managers at the e-mail address below.
Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Shaker.
