Meet Sanderson! This 50lb boy is a heeler / pit mix. A fantastic combo of working dog and cuddle bug! He was adopted from Safe Haven as a puppy and returned because the family didn't have the time to put in the training he needs. This handsome boy is Sanderson! A very smart boy! He knows sit, paw, lay down, kiss, and I'm sure a few more we haven't discovered yet. He's really good with his foster siblings and is pretty energetic. He sleeps peacefully through the night. He loves to play catch and zoom around the yard. After a long game of fetch Sanderson loves to curl up and be with his people! Sanderson is looking for a forever family. What does Sanderson's perfect family look like? Someone willing to give this boy the attention he deserves! Sanderson is smart and a herding dog. He sometimes tries to keep people 'in order' with some nipping. He means no harm! He's just doing the job he was bred to do! Sanderson would love a home with a yard to run around in. Someone who understands that he has a lot of energy and can give him positive outlets to put his skills to use! If you're ready to meet Sanderson, fill out an application today!
