This sweet, curious and active guy is named for his hops. He loves to wiggle and walk, and you can always find him with a toy in his mouth – especially if it’s a sqeaky one. Hopper’s favorite things to do are play, run and show off his moves. He does well on walks and has learned a lot at the APS of Durham shelter. Hopper is eager to learn new things and can’t wait to sniff his way along on adventures with you. Hopper is about 56 pounds and has been at the shelter since Jan. 17. He loves to give other dogs kisses and just wants to be their friend, but is sometimes overwhelming to other pups. Hopper needs some basic training and lots of brain games. He’s a busy guy and would love to go everywhere with you! Come meet him at APS of Durham today!

Kids 6+, jumpy
Dogs: Friendly but a little stiff, slow intros, then offers some play
