Tipton is an active young dog with a good sense of humor. Tipton comes from the streets of Las Vegas - New Mexico. He is very curious and loves pets and neck scratches. He has interesting brindle accents on his face and legs and his mix of breeds is not obvious, so we are calling him a mix of Heeler and German Shepherd. Tipton is perfect medium sizeof 47 pounds. He loves to play with his dog friends at his foster home, but can relax on a dog bed with the best of them. Tipton is extremely intelligent, learning commands and routines quickly. Tipton is crate trained and house trained and walks on leash like a pro. He would LOVE a playful female dog as a companion. Tipton enjoys playing chase with dogs and humans alike. His favorite activities are hikes, walks, playtime, and belly rubs. He will take a few days to warm up to his new people, but he is very willing to trust those that give him a chance. Tipton is still a bit wary of strangers on walks, but he is getting better everyday. Tipton has never shown aggression towards dog or human, but may want to chase cats and chickens. Tipton would do best with an active but quieter household so children over 12 please. Tipton is an awesome companion sure to bring many smiles.
