***** Cannoli has been with us longer than we would like so he is a member of our Lonely Hearts Club and his adoption fee has been reduced to $250. *****

Name: Cannoli
Age: Adult Weight: ~64 lbs

Personality: Oh Hi! I'm Cannoli! I'm looking for a great home and I would love someone who gets out and about a lot, maybe even goes hiking, cause I'm a pretty energetic guy. I am boisterous enough that I crave lots of exercise and dog mind enrichment each day to keep me happy. In a foster home I had fun playing and then snoozing with two smaller dogs, though I can be a bit of a rowdy player! I love to chew on stuffy toys, carry around rawhides, and basically use my mouth all the time. I am such a goofy bundle of energy that I am likely to be too much for small children so I need to head to a home where any kids are teens and up. From Cannoli's foster mom: "I've met few dogs that have the zest for life that Cannoli does. He is such a wonderful boy and so worthy and deserving of an adopter who will provide him the training, consistency and positive reinforcement that he craves. He will pay it forward a 100 times over with love and loyalty."

Medical History: I am on some medication to manage my stress and anxiety which may be needed ongoing. As always it is a good idea to take me to your regular vet soon after adoption.

Adoption Fee: $250 + Tax
