Available Dogs - Atticus



Hello! My name is Atticus! I’m a happy, smart, playful, energetic boy who’s just about a year old but still all puppy. I always have a smile on my face and want to be near my humans and my canine family. I’m crate-trained (though it's not my favorite place), house-trained, and know how to sit. I’m working on stay and my leash-walking and can’t wait to spend time working with you!

I’m still learning how to fit in, which means I still need supervision when outside my crate. Shoes, blankets, and other items are fun to chew, so I need your guidance to help me learn which things are OK to play with and which are not.

I love being around my foster brother and sister and I’d be happy with a permanent brother or sister. My foster brother taught me about belly scratches and that’s become one of my favorite things - I’ll melt into the floor at the first scratch!

I’m looking for my forever family who can teach me, love me, and give me belly scratches of course!
