Chief's Story

Looking for a lovable canine companion who is eager to accompany you on all of your outdoor adventures?  Well look no further!  We have the dog for you!  Chief is an exuberant Shepherd mix who is hoping to find someone who enjoys being active just as much as he does.  He loves doing anything and everything outside such as going for a nice jog, strolling through the park, and playing fetch for hours on end!  Chief would absolutely love being your buddy on a scenic hiking trip as he enjoys exploring all that the world has to offer.  He is also on his way to becoming an agility star!  Chief enjoys navigating different types of obstacles and enjoys participating in training class.  He also is a huge fan of any and every kind of toy he can get his paws on!  He would love to find a playmate who will be there to play fetch with him and will provide him with his very own tub full of squeaky toys!

Although Chief is such a vibrant boy, he can be a bit slow to trusting those he does not know and it does take him a bit of time to become comfortable with strangers.  Before he can engage in training with his new family and go on fun adventures, he will need some time to bond with his people and build up trust with them.  This cutie pie is searching for an adults-only home with an experienced owner who will accept him for who he is and is willing to work on creating a strong relationship with him that will surely last a lifetime!  Chief also loves going for walks, but can be a bit fearful of loud and strange noises.  He would do best in a quiet neighborhood where he can strut his stuff and show off how great of a walking partner he can be.  All in all, Chief is one amazing guy who just wants to find someone who can be patient with him and show him what it feels like to be loved unconditionally!  If you think you can be that person for him and are looking to add a cutie like Chief to your family, then come and meet him today!
