NAME, SIZE AND BREED: Shipley is a happy, 42-pound 1-year-old dog looking for a family. This boy has a lot of energy and requires a family that is committed to his exercise routine.
NOTES FROM THE VOLUNTEER: He likes other dogs and would likely benefit from another playful dog in the home to help him learn good habits. He is interested in, but respectful of the cats in his current foster home. Shipley is likely too bouncy for young children and other people who may be unsteady on their feet. Shipley knows some basic commands and walks nicely on a leash, but could benefit from some additional training, especially when he gets excited. We think he would love to learn a sport like barn hunt or agility.
