BIG FAN OF: Snuggling on laps, being petted and bounding around the yard.
NOT A FAN OF: Other dogs. He's not fond of sharing his favorite things and his living space with other dogs, so he needs to be the only dog in his home right now.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Cisco is a sweet, affectionate guy who loves every stranger he meets. He adores affection and will give you a little lick if you stop petting him to encourage you to keep going. He'll sleep in bed with you if you let him, and he loves endless games of fetch, chewing on bones, and taking long walks/jogs (he does best with a Gentle Leader to remind him to not pull). He is a fast learner who already knows touch, sit, down, come, stay, and bed. He is crate-trained and housetrained, but keep in mind that any dog may need time to get used to a new schedule.
OTHER REASONS HE'S SPECIAL: Cisco is a pup with a busy brain and body. He needs things to do to keep him occupied or he'll find other things to do that you might not like. He's very alert and an independent thinker. You can practically see him considering if he wants to do what you've asked, but treats help him overcome any reluctance. Adopters will speak with a member of our behavior team before taking Cisco home to talk about his history.
DREAM HOME: With a family looking for a dog who is a great mix of affectionate and active. He'll love going on good walks each day and then cuddling up with you when the house is quiet.
The ARL's shelter software requires that we choose a primary breed for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most dogs we are only guessing at primary breed. We get to know each dog as an individual and do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not breed label.
