Hello my friends, my name is Drake and I'm here at the shelter looking for a new home - maybe your home could be mine too?
Let me tell you about myself. I'm about 5 years old and I'm a shepherd mix pup - people tell me I'm really beautiful and different looking.

I came to the shelter some years ago and then I was adopted. I did really well in a home with a pre-teen brother and a mom and dad but sadly because of a divorce there was no home for me anymore so I came back to the shelter.

Over the years it became known that I have an auto immune disease which affects blood flow to my feet and ears. The Vets worked hard to find the right meds for me so the condition would be under control and not cause me or my family trouble and they did it! I do have to take meds now for life which I do perfectly but my human friends say the meds aren't expensive which is good, right!

The Behavior Team puts me in a doggie play group with calm dogs and I've done really well and enjoy easy-going dog friends - especially the ladies - so I may enjoy the company of your dog, let's do a meet!

I can be shy of new people but my volunteer friends here at the shelter have done a lot of work helping me get more comfortable! They say I've made huge strides - I've even attended some events with lots of new folks and did wonderfully. I still like to take it slow but with you by my side, I can do anything.

All in all, they tell me I'm a great pup who just needs a new home. If you think I might be right for you get in touch with one of my special Volunteer friends Sheila at sheilacurtin22@comcast.net - she can answer questions and set up a meet for you and I. Can't wait to meet you!
