o you LOVE to laugh? Do you love the outdoors? Do you like tricks (not your ordinary tricks!) Do you need something to rub off a little 'Happy' onto you? MITCH is your guy! I have NEVER seen a dog make such a fool of himself, have no shame, love every other dog and person, and just love life SO much.....and also be homeless. Mitch has been homeless for 9 months now. Mitch was surrendered to the shelter in July 2016 at 5 mo old. With hours left before euthanasia, the litter was rescued. His other 3 siblings got adopted right away, and he was left behind. ] He's looking for a family who would enjoy an outside, sometimes inside pet...have children who love to play fetch..and have no kitties! He can be an inside dog because he loves to snuggle and watch tv or sleep in the bed, but he is an outdoor dog at heart. This boy runs and runs and runs circles around the yard with his rope, ball, bone, stick, anything he can find in his mouth! He's a ham!! He responds very well to commands such as sit, down, wait, and ok. He loves to go on car rides and outings! He's wonderful on the leash and welcomes strangers with a wag! His favorite place in the world is the dog park! He's super trainable and hasn't attended formal classes, but training classes will are included in his adoption! He's fairly small, around 35lb, and won't get any bigger. He is up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. If your family is looking for an addition or you're looking to be loved unconditionally, amused daily, and willing to give a baby a second chance at a good start in life, Mitch is who you are looking for!!! Mitch is looking for an adopter OR FOSTER!! His current foster can no longer keep him, as she has too many pets to give him the attention he deserves. He is kenneled too much and needs OUT!!
