Hi, pals! My name is Shiner, and I’m a 5-year-old Terrier mix male, weighing in at 65 pounds.  I’ve already been neutered, and I’m proud to report that I’m potty-trained and house-trained!  I am pretty much leash-trained, as well, but I do have a tendency to become a bit reactive while out and about on a leash.

Prior to being fostered, I spent the first 16 months of my life as an outdoor dog defending a fence.  That part of me still comes out at times, but I’ve worked really hard to adjust to normal life in a loving home.  Other than that, I’m just a big ol’ sweetie pie, looking to love you forever and ever. 

A little bit about me, you ask? Well, I love laying in the sun, playing tug-of-war and visiting Dog Beach.  I do have a good amount of energy, too, so I need regular walks and runs around the neighborhood to keep me at my best.  I’m also a very smart boy and already know a bunch of commands.  Because I’m so treat-motivated, I’m receptive to learning anything new!  My favorite foods are broccoli, carrots, and Brussel sprouts (and don’t forget treats!).  While I do love my (adult) humans, I only exhibit mild symptoms of separation anxiety when you leave. 

My ideal family would be one without any kiddos, since they tend to make me feel pretty anxious.  No doggie or kitty friends either, please.  I’d also love my family to be an active one, as I love to get out and about and smell the world.

Do we sound like a good pair? If so, my adoption fee is $250.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.  You may also directly contact my foster: Allen allenlrosenbaum@gmail.com
