Looking for a gentle giant to complete your family? You, my friend, have come to the right place! My name is Carl, and I'm a sweet gentleman with a medium energy level: I enjoy playing with toys or my doggies friends and going for a long stroll around the neighborhood, but also love cuddle and massage time. I get along great with other dogs, but would do best in a home with no cats because I do not understand that I am so much bigger than them. I love people of all ages, including kiddos! I can go long hours without having a potty accident, and am crate trained, though I will bark for a bit before settling down so I would do best in a single-family home rather than an apartment or townhouse with shared walls. I'm smart and eager to please, so I would love a forever family that will sign me up for training classes so I can prove my brain is as big as my body. What are you waiting for? I am ready to fill your home with lots of love and fun, so please fill out an adoption application soon!

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.
