At 10 years old, Blackie is shy at first, but LOVES people once he gets to know them and bonds fast! He is a happy, older dog, but still enjoys playing fetch and swimming. He does well with dogs that are around his size, but would need a meet and greet with any potential fur siblings. Blackie has not been tested with small dogs or cats. He is crate and leashed trained with a low to moderate energy level. Blackie has been treated for heartworms and is now negative. He will do best with a family that has some experience and is patient.
