Cheers, mates! Connelly's the name, and bringing the fun and joy is my game! I am an active young dude who would thrive with an active family: I enjoy running around the yard, playing with other dogs, games of tug of war, and chewing on the toys I can get my paws on. When I am all tired out from our fun, I love laying down with my people for some quality petting. I get along well with children, but would do best with kiddos who can handle my energy since I am still working on my manners and can be a jumping bean when I am excited. I am also dog friendly, but would do best in a home without kitty cats. Fetching Tails requires adopters of young dogs like me to sign us up for training classes where I can learn basic commands and work on my leash skills, and I am eager to learn! I think I am a pretty smart boy - I'm already crate trained and working hard on potty training - and would love to work my brain in class. Hurry up and fill out that adoption application: it is time for a lifetime of fun!

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.
