Need a sweet snuggle buddy? My name is Jenkins, and I am a handsome gentleman who has long dreamed of being pampered and spoiled with a family who really cares for me. You see, I was recently rescued from a trailer where I lived with 25 other dogs and lots of cats. I am so happy to be free and soaking up TLC thanks to my foster family and Fetching Tails. I will thrive in a calm home where my humans are home often because I love to be near them so we can cuddle and relax. I've learned my most favorite activities in the world include going for walkies around the neighborhood to explore and joining my human and furry friends on the couch for a snooze.

I am dog and cat friendly, and would love to have a calm doggie pal in my forever family to hang out with. I would also prefer any children to be older/teen-aged since I enjoy a quiet environment. I am fully potty trained already; I don't love my crate and will bark when in it because I would rather be near my family, but have good house manners and do not get into things I shouldn't when out and about. My ideal forever home will be a single-family house without shared walls (so no apartments or townhouses, please!) since I wouldn't want to bother the neighbors with my singing voice. My foster momma says I am the sweetest little guy who has so much love to share with a family that will finally let me experience the good life I have always dreamed about. I hope you fill out an adoption application soon so we can get our snuggles on!

Love, Jenkins

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.
