I'm located at the Avery Humane Society in Newland, NC.
I'm one of the coolest Dogs you will ever meet. I LOVE people & will lean on you for days for strokes & massages. I know how to sit & whenever you get still & I'm not sure what you want, I sit down & wait for a tasty treat. My Shelter Family loves to brag about how smart I am, how much I love children & how I zoom around the corral when we go outside. My favorite volunteer takes me on really long walks in the woods, let's me go slow & follow my extra special hound nose. I like other dogs, but I'm a young, big boy so the staff & volunteers are helping me learn to regulate my excitement a little bit when I see another dog on a walk. If you come visit me, please understand that I am super friendly & the stress of being alone a lot in the shelter makes be bouncy & talkative sometimes. I am hoping for a home where my humans will be my best friends, set up a routine to help me feel secure, include me in lots of family activities and use some patterns & games to help me trust that I can count on you. I am young, smart, social, have a crazy good nose & really want a person who will participate in a dog sport with me, such as K9 Nose work, mantrailing, search & rescue or something fun like that. Come meet me!
P.S. The Trainer at the Shelter donates 2 free sessions to set us doggoes and our new humans up for a successful life together!
