Meet Shawn! About 2 Years Old Male Mixed Breed Hello, this is Shawn! Shawn is a friendly boy that traveled from Tennessee to Illinois in hopes of finding a good home. He is about 2 years old and 45 lb wiggly butt boy with a soft beautiful brindle coat. Some bad person cut his ears, and did a really horrible job, but he doesn't seem to mind and he loves people despite how some of them treated him. Shawn enjoys spending time outside and plays well with other dogs. He really enjoys running around fast in the snow! He is friendly with kids and currently lives with a 10 and 11 year old. He is happy playing alone with his ball and is so quiet. He is so quiet that if you are looking for a dog to defend you from those suspicious delivery people, Shawn is not that kind of pup. While his foster brother warns the whole block of the suspicious delivery people, Shawn just sits and looks at his foster brother and wonders why all that noise was necessary! During the day he likes to play a little with his foster brother and then relaxes for most of the day. Foster brother has taught Shawn how to play tug-o-war. At first Shawn was unsure what to do with that rope and would get tangled up in it, but after a few tries he started getting the hang of it. At night, he sleeps well through the night in his crate. Shawn has done well when left out for a couple hours alone. Shawn has gotten many compliments at the park about what a good boy he is and how well he plays with other dogs. He loves to run around and chase other dogs. At first, he was unsure about doors and stairs, but he is quickly learning his routine and getting more comfortable. He likes to sit next to the kids in the home while they are eating and wait to see if anything accidentally drops to the ground so he can pick it up, occasionally he needs to be reminded to stay down but he is working on it and does well after being reminded to stay down. Shawn is such a loveable boy and with some repetition will learn his routine and be a wonderful member of a family.
