***** Curtis 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 $300. *****

Hi there I'm Curtis and I just arrived here from Texas and I'm looking for my new home! I'm an active and playful dog who would love to go home to a family who will provide lots of play time and walks. I can't wait to go to training classes with you too, so I can learn to be the best mannered dog! My adoption includes a four-week scholarship for a virtual training program called GoodPup!

Medical History: I have some thinning of hair around my four paws that may be due to underlying allergies and we recommend discussing options for distinguishing allergies with your vet. I appear to be a healthy dog, but it's always a good idea to get me into a vet soon after adoption so I can meet my new doctor!

Weight: ~43lbs

Adoption Fee: $300 + tax
