Howdy, pals! My name is Huckleberry and I would love to mosey into your home where I can find find a nice, comfy place to nap! I am a gentle giant whose favorite activities include lounging around and getting all the belly rubs and attention from my humans that I can. I would prefer an adult-only home or one with older children if you have kiddos; I can be sensitive to touch to my hind legs and need my human friends to be old enough to understand. I would also do best in a family where I am the only dog, however I do get along with cats. I am potty trained and will let you know when I need to do my business. My ideal forever home will include a fenced yard that I can enjoy: I love sitting outside in the grass while I sunbathe! I also love car rides and will hop right in when the door is open, and my favorite destinations are forest preserves or peaceful parks without a lot of activity - I am all about that zen life and enjoying nature without distraction! I can be overwhelmed when I see other dogs while on walks, so I would thrive with humans will commit to signing me up for training so I can work on my leash manners. But overall, I am a gentleman with simple requests: a lot of love, and a lot of cozy places to stretch out and sleep! If I am your huckleberry, hurry up and fill out an adoption application soon so we can relax and enjoy a peaceful life together!
