Who's your boy? Hopefully me! I'm Boyd, and I am an affectionate young dude who loves to hang out with my humans. Just imagine all the fun we can have playing with toys together, going for long walks (I love exploring but can pull on the leash when I want to check things out faster, so I would benefit from continued training to improve my walking skills!), and curling up on the couch for some quality snuggles and TV time. My friends tell me I am very sweet with people of all ages and think I would do fine in a home with children, but for now I would prefer to be the only pet in my family. I am already potty and crate trained, as well. Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes, and I think we could have great fun learning new skills together. Anything with you by my side is going to be fun, I just know it. I hope you fill out an adoption application soon because I have my bags packed and am ready to start my lifetime of love!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
