Available Dogs - Wiggles

 

Wiggles the Good Boy copy

Mr. Wiggles is a sweet and handsome 1 year old golden mix. What’s in the mix? Maybe lab or maybe hound or maybe both? He’s a long, tall, beautiful dog!

Wiggles is an energetic young dog, who has also learned how to settle. He is good with female dogs but can be a little nervous of male dogs and would benefit from slower introductions.

Wiggles rides well in the car. He’s great at meeting people and very affectionate and sweet. He walks well on leash (okay after getting some reminders about how humans like dogs to walk on a loose leash which is not all that much fun for dogs). He is a great walking, hiking and could be a great running companion.

He loves being with his people - to the point that we needed to help him learn how to settle on his own in the crate. Wiggles can now be content for up to 4 hours at a time in his crate (he’d love a mid-day break for some potty and yard romps). Wiggles needs a 6 foot fence - or to be on leash because he can jump a shorter fence.

Wiggles has learned lots of manners and good behaviors since coming from the shelter and is ready to become a great dog for you! If you can provide some daily activity and have the right environment for Wiggles, he’s ready to be your best boy.

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.
