Fella

Hello! I am an exuberant and energetic dog that loves people. I haven't quite learned my manners yet, and sometimes I just get too excited! I will do best in an adult-only home, and if you have another dog at home, I have to meet everyone in the home including your dog at the time of your appointment to make sure we'll be best friends. If you have an active lifestyle and enjoy outdoor activities, then I'm the perfect dog for you. With continued guidance, I'll be a wonderful addition to your family, so please come in and meet me soon!
