Mel, 1, is an uber-handsome young whippersnapper He loves going for walks and getting outside in the fresh air. He is well-behaved on leash but has a tendency to take off on solo adventures, if left to his own devices.
Mel is a very sweet, social guy who came to us from a shelter. Because he sometimes feels anxious and will bolt if he feels afraid, we think Mel would do best in an adult home with someone who can work with him to help him feel comfortable and confident about walking in public places. He is not a great fit for cats, as he likes to chase them. But seems comfortable around other dogs.
