Available Dogs - Stout

Stout Sitting

Stout is a cute senior guy with simple needs. He needs to learn that he can trust you, because life hasn't always been kind to this little dog. Food, routine, some short walks and gentle handling will help him adjust to a new home. Stout loves a routine, and would do best in a calm home. Stout responds so well to love and attention!

He enjoys some gentle handling and a comfy place to relax.  He likes attention from his humans and will follow you around your house and settle beside you when you sit down. He likes to have some play time after breakfast, or a short walk, and then he some quiet time on his own in his crate or other quiet spot.  

He loves to have his head and chin scratched and makes some cute noises to let you know how much he enjoys your affection.. He'll let you know with a paw on your lap that scratching time is not over yet! 

Stout knows all of the basic commands and is crate trained.  He would do best in a home without other animals or children.  He really is just looking for some easy companionship and security.  

Would Stout be the right companion for you?
