Balou is back! Formerly Paul Walker, this meatball came into our rescue a little over a year ago as just a 9 week old pup from a shelter in Elko, NV. He was adopted by folks who, though they loved him a lot, were not able to meet his training and socialization needs and therefore made the tough decision to rehome him. So Balou is back with us, working on his manners, and doing well. Energetic, smart, and food-motivated, he’s learning new tricks and skills every day and will need an adopter who is committed to his continued training, socialization, and boundaries. Living with two other male dogs who are helping him along, Balou can play a bit rough and needs someone who will redirect him to more appropriate play. He is crate trained and working on using this space when he is overstimulated, as well as his leash manners, but needs no help being an A+ cuddler. This guy loves humans and will need a dedicated adopter who will provide plenty of mental and physical outlets for his energy, and then plenty of love when it’s time to chill on the couch.
