Dogs Available For Adoption


Shadow is approximately 6 months old, and a medium cross breed. Shadow is a a bit of a goof with a fun and spunky personality. He loves to use his voice and be the centre of attention, a dog park would be his idea of heaven! Shadow is great with children and other dogs, but would need some training to be around other animals. He is working on basic commands and lead training but will need someone who is willing to put some time into him, to set him up for success. He's very sweet and playful and if you are wanting a companion to explore and go on adventures with you - shadow is your boy!
