Muddy Buddy is a super sweet, affectionate and wiggly puppy who has a lot of love to give. He takes a little time to feel all the way comfortable with a new person, but has truly excelled in his time at the shelter. He’s learned a lot of new tricks, worked on his skills on the leash and even was selected to be in play groups with other dogs, which has helped him learn how to properly interact with other dogs and given staff a good indication of his behavior outside the kennel. He would make a great Buddy to another dog. Since he is still young and shy at times, he would greatly benefit from someone who will take their time with him and continue teaching him basic manners. He need lots of playtime, things to chew and a lil help with his confidence. Can he leave his paw print on your heart?
