Available Dogs - Armstrong


Armstrong loves his stuffies

Armstrong is a sweet, happy boy ready to find his furever home. Armstrong loves being around people and his stuffy toys. He carries his stuffy toys around the house and chews on them, but hasn’t destroyed any whatsoever. He is content to lay on the floor in the same room you’re in or lay on the couch with you to cuddle. Armstrong also loves tug-of-war and indoor fetch and chasing balls in the yard.

Armstrong loves car rides! Anytime we walk to the garage he’s like “are we going somewhere?” He is working on his leash training for pulling and dog reactivity. He is very food motivated and eager to please. Children younger than middle school make him nervous, but he has been great with the middle school age and older children of our neighborhood. He is a chill and relaxed dog unless he hears something suspicious outside or the doorbell – then he barks! He is vocal and will grumble if he doesn’t like something.

Armstrong is an incredibly sweet and well-mannered dog with a lot of love to give. He will politely sit and wait for his food or reward whenever asked. He is house trained and great in a crate, but has also done well free roaming in the house when left alone.

Armstrong is available to approved applicants only. You must have a previously approved application with NRGRR.

Reminder for approved applicants - to apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email NRGRRapplications@hotmail.com.
