Spot came to us from a Kill Shelter in July of 2016 and got a second chance at life. After 1.5 years of patiently waiting at our Shelter, he's anxious to find a family to call his own. He's incredibly affectionate to those he knows, and often forgets his size when he decides to sit on your lap and smother you with kisses to show you his appreciation for all your love and attention. Spot successfully completed obedience training in Oct. 2016, knows several commands, and walks well on a leash. But like any type of training, regular reinforcement is key for continued success. Spot can be intimidating to strangers from his kennel with his jumping and barking, but that quickly changes once he gets to know you. For those he knows and trusts, he sits quietly at his kennel door with his adorable head tilt, patiently waiting for his next walk and human socialization. Spot is on a grain-free venison diet and would do best with an experienced handler who would have time to work with him. Since he's skilled at climbing fences, regular leash walking is a must.
