Hello there, I'm Xavier! Not as in Charles Francis Xavier, but I'm just as smart as he is. I'm a herding dog who has a lot of energy to put to good use! I love to go for walks, runs, and hikes because it gives me a chance to stretch my legs and use my brain. In my previous home, I didn't get a lot of exercise, so I was anxious, frustrated, and began to gain weight. But now I'm looking for a new home where I can be better understood: one where we can be active together during the day, then snuggle one another while we sleep. I love people, but can be a little shy in new situations. That's because I spent a lot of time in my house at my previous home, so I just need a confident adopter who can show me what life is all about. If you take me home, I promise to love you more than you could ever imagine. All I want in life is to be someone's best friend. Can you give me that chance? Weight: 53 pounds
