Celo's Story

Meet the stunning and oh so adorable, Celo!  This striking bundle of fur is super handsome with ears that stand up so high they almost touch the sky and eyes that are so captivating, it’s hard to look away from them! This gorgeous boy came to PAWS as a from one of our rural transfer partners in Tennessee. Celo is slowly adjusting to city life and is ready to enjoy going for long walks through the neighborhood as he enjoys being out and about and is as active as can be! Once the day is through, Celo is more than happy to kick back and relax on the couch next to his favorite humans! Celo absolutely loves people and enjoys their company so so much! He would enjoy being your very best friend and would make a great doggy sidekick for all your outdoor adventures! He is also very well-mannered and already has a few basic commands down pat! Of course, like most wise canines, Celo would love to keep his brain as sharp as a tack and would enjoy continuing his training in the future!

Celo is looking for a quiet and active home with an experienced owner and without young children. He does get nervous when entering into new environments and would love to find someone who will be patient with him and allow him to acclimate to his surroundings at his own pace. Celo does enjoy his food and toys and would prefer not to share them with other dogs, so he would do best as the only canine in the home. He is currently enjoying a vacation away from the shelter in a foster home where we have learned that he is fully housebroken and is fine being left alone in a crate! He has won over the heart of his foster mom already and hopes that his charmingly good looks and wonderful personality can win over the hearts of a forever family in the future! If you’re willing to take a chance on this handsome fellow, then email us at to find out how you can meet him in person!
