Meet Burt. This young guy was a stray that OOHS took in so he could find his forever home. He is young, energetic and very happy to just be alive. It is obvious he has not had much attention paid to him by his previous people. He jumps and nips to get attention, all the while letting you know how grateful he is to have you there. He has not shown an ounce of aggression, he is just so excited to see you…so excited to get some attention. He will need some work to focus as at this point EVERYTHING is exciting. It is even hard for him to focus on his dinner with so many fun things going on! A quick “sit” and a “take it nice” for treats lesson proved that with consistency and training he will be trying to please you. At this point we are still getting to know Burt but we have already fallen in love with this goofy, happy fellow. Burt likes to play with the other dogs all the time, but his foster siblings know how to let him know they have had enough….we are pretty sure he would keep playing for hours if they let him. He lives with older children and would do OK with older children who can help with Burt's training. His nipping might be a bit overwhelming for younger children. Maybe Burt is the dog you have been looking for to help become the best he can be. In return he will keep a smile on your face and remind you that the simple fact you are alive is reason enough to find joy in every moment. Burt will have a video soon, so check back! Burt’s adoption fee is $150.00. He comes with a $25.00 training scholarship that can be used at the trainer of your choice! He is neutered, up to date on routine vaccinations – including rabies.
