Isaac's Story

Put your paws together for Isaac!  Isaac is all ears and super excited to find a loving forever home!  He is as friendly as they come and one big goofball who would love to go home with an active and engaging family who can put this gorgeous boy’s brain to work!  Handsome Isaac came to PAWS from one of our rural transfer partners in Tennessee.  It didn’t take him long to get adopted and he spent two and a half months in the home before he was returned because the family felt they could not devote enough time to him.  Isaac is optimistic that the perfect family is out there for him, which he hopes will be with someone who will give him all the exercise and activity he craves!  He is a very active boy who is super stoked to be your sidekick on all of your fun hiking trips, ventures through the wilderness, and lovely strolls through the park!  Isaac loves indulging in pretty much any activity that includes being on the move!  He can get easily excited when going for walks and in high stimulating environments.  Isaac is just one big goofball who hopes he can find someone who will be willing to put his brain to work and commit to his training.  He is longing for a strong and confident handler to guide and help him develop into a well-mannered boy!

Isaac is searching for an active home with an experienced owner and without young children.  He enjoys the company of other dogs his size and would do best with a canine companion who enjoys rough housing just as much as he does!   Playtime is also a big deal to Isaac and he is always ready to engage in a fun game of fetch or tug-of-war!  Throw him a tennis ball and he will retrieve it for you in seconds!  Give him a rope toy and he will entertain himself for hours on end!  Watching Isaac’s entertaining antics will surely fill you with laughter.  Did I forget to mention he has the goofiest looking ears in the world?  If there was an award for most adorable ears in the entire world, Isaac would win by an earful!  Make this boy’s day and come out and meet him!  Once you do, he will be too "ear"esistable to not take home!

  • I'll take as much exercise as I can get!
  • Did someone say 'treat'?  I'll take them all!
  • You + a tennis ball = my perfect day.
  • I'd love to be your running buddy.
  • I'm a people person!


  • I would love to find a home with children 15+.
