Life’s anything but dreary with this dreamy dog!

‘Ello, darlings! My name is Edgar, Edgar Allan Poe to be precise. Unlike my namesake who wrote about doom and gloom, I’m an absolute ray of sunshine. I’m a 2-year-old, 62-pound, neutered shepherd mix. Despite being rescued from the conditions of ESLR (which would make the original Poe’s settings look like Disneyland), I’m happy, healthy, and ready for a furever family!

I’m the friendliest fella who is great at taking cues from other dogs. I do well playing and making new friends! I give all of the kids I meet out and about lots of love, and will do well in a home with kids 7y+ who can follow instructions and are respectful of my space. I haven’t met any cats, so I’m not sure what I think about them. I have an adaptable pawsonality that will leave you smiling day after day. If you’re ready for an adventure, count me in! If you want to chill at home, I’ll keep you company. I enjoy exercise such as walks and playing fetch but I’m also content sunbathing and snuggling with my blanket. Nothing makes me happier than some pats on the head or couch cuds with you!

I’m a very good boy who is a fast learner. I had a few pee accidents when I first moved in but quickly learned to go outside. I’m doing well with my leash training and enjoy exploring in the car, too! I sleep through the night in my crate and will greet you with a wagging tail and blankie in my mouth in the morning. I cry for the first 3-5 minutes but settle down shortly. I enjoy chewing on my toys and being your loyal, loving companion.

Since I’m such a sweetheart, I’d do well in a variety of loving homes! I’d thrive with another pup as my bud. I’m happiest by your side and enjoy getting out and being active. Although I need my exercise, I’m also a pretty chill dude who can kick back and relax. I’m the pawfect balance! So stop writing tragic poems and turn your life into smiles and tail-waggin’ fun by adopting me!

My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
