|Profile Information/tell us more about this pet||Shaggy is the sweetest boy there is. He loves everyone in the house. He likes to stay right next to his person all the time. So he will always be on the couch next to you or the edge of the bed than on the floor or his own bed. He is protective of his house so he will warn you if he hears someone outside but then he is very happy to see humans when the door opens. He is great on leash and loves his daily walks. He likes to talk sometimes and howls and barks at you when he wants you to run around with him. When it comes to other dogs he seems way too excited to meet so he needs proper one on one introductions under supervision. He will probably do great with kids as well but he may be better with older kids given his age. As far as grooming is concerned he may require professional grooming once a month with brushing once a week is required. He is very patient during brushing sessions. He is also very good at home by himself. He has the roam of the house right now and he seems happy that way and will relax patiently for his humans to come back.
He will be a great companion to anyone who adopts him. Shaggy just had a recent dental! Adoption fee $350
