Ahoy! I'm McCoy, and I want to be your first mate for life! I am a playful young dude who has typical puppyish energy and would thrive with a family who will continue to help me blossom and grow. I get along great with other doggies, but would do best in a home without cats. My favorite activities include going for walkies around the neighborhood to explore and playing with my humans and doggie friends. I'm crate trained already, but need some patience and guidance while I continue to work on potty training. I am a smart guy and eager to learn more, so I would appreciate a family that will sign me up for training classes. Fill out that adoption application soon so we can set sail on a life of adventure!

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.
