For 6.5 years, I lived with two other dogs and a small child but my family did not have much time for me and so I was frequently crated. They gave me to an older woman that had cats (which I don’t like) and who was unable to give me the exercise outlet that I needed. So I was then surrendered to Rainbow of Hope Animal Rescue at the end of March 2015.


I am active and don’t sit still for long! I love riding in the car and sticking my head out the window—just leave it open enough for me to get my head out… I’ll reach…it’s worth the breeze in my face! On the driver’s side of the backseat, I am very effective at getting cars to quickly move past us, especially big trucks and buses. A quick “ruff” and off they go. I love taking nice long walks! Keep up with me—only occasionally will I “stop to smell the flowers.” Usually I like the quick pace especially when I see someone to greet up ahead! I love playing with my toys and love to pull the stuffing out of the soft ones—my tail wagging the whole time! I will chase and retrieve toys as long as the thrower will keep throwing! I am very smart and extremely food motivated to the extent that when I meet someone new, the first thing I do is go to the hand and see if there is a treat in it! I move quickly to the next person if nothing is there! I have been trained to sit, lie down, stay and shake hands. Okay, so I don’t always wait to hear the exact command. When there is food involved, I may assume it’s a multiple choice question and try all of my tricks in a row to see which one gets me the treat! I am not a huge snuggler yet, but scratching my chin holds me about as still as I can be! I am a real charmer, but by the same token, it can take a bit of time to win over my trust completely. Bottom line—I play a bit “hard to get,” and you have to earn all desired “snuggles!”


I love people of all ages and have lived with small children previously. I have lived with dogs before but because of my activity level and bit of dominance, living with too many of them may create a bit of chaos. I do not like, and cannot live with, cats. I have a strong prey drive and thus shouldn’t probably live with other small pets like gerbils, hamsters or rabbits, etc.. I seem fine with small dogs!

    Favorite activities:

  • I love to go for long, quick paced walks and rides in the car (back window open partway please!)!
  • I love to retrieve toys!
  • I love it when you scratch my chin!
  • I love training sessions (because that means treats!)!

Why I am looking for a new home:

My last two owners did not have time to spend with me or provide an adequate outlet for my energy.


I have all of my vaccines (Rabies, DHPP, and Bordatella) and I am on heartworm preventative since I tested negative for Heartworm. I have a Seresto collar to keep off fleas and ticks. I do have food allergies and so will need to be on a limited ingredient diet (single rare meat protein such as Natural Balance Duck and Potato). Otherwise I am completely healthy!


I am a terrific exercise companion and a real charmer. I will need a human mom and dad that are willing to keep me on my limited ingredient diet while making sure I have an outlet for my energy (i.e. consistent play time and/or walks!). Don’t let my big brown soft eyes fool you—I will walk all over you if you let me! I also need a vet and groomer who knows how to deal with a guy that can be fearful of too much restraint. So my foster/forever home needs to be with someone who has experience with dogs needing behavior modification and who will set firm but gentle boundaries and be consistent in my training and exercise routine. Most of all, I need someone that will teach me what it is like to be unconditionally loved and committed to…so I can truly bloom into all that I can be.

​If you think you can provide me a good home or would be willing to foster me, please call Rainbow of Hope Animal Rescue Inc. at 607-562-8085 or shoot an email to our director Susan at
