Ready to complete your family?


Ray would make a great addition to almost any family. But Ray is one of those dogs who is passed over frequently in the shelter because being in the kennel stresses him out. He is often panting, barking or jumping around in his kennel and he does not make a good impression on visitors. However, when you take him outside, he is a completely different dog. He is friendly but calm,is affectionate, and enjoys attention and just hanging out with you. He walks right beside you while on the leash and will quietly sit next to you and ask for pets. He gets along with other dogs in playgroup, and he isn't reactive when other dogs pass by. He genuinely enjoys being outside and being around people. We are hoping someone will give him the chance to show them what an amazing dog he is. If you would like to meet Ray, please bring your family and any other dogs in your home to meet him at the shelter before you take him home.
