Shadow Cruiser has soft black fur with a white streak on his chest.
Shadow Cruiser is a little ball of personality! and SO MUCH FUN! Happy to entertain himself with toys or bones, he is content playing by himself--but more than happy to allow his humans or furry foster siblings to join in on the fun. One of his favorite games is tug-of-war!
Shadow Cruiser is crate- and house-trained, and sleeps through the night quietly. When he needs to go out or wants to be let out of his crate for any reason, he does bark persistently. So apartment living would be a challenge for this precious boy without additional training to eliminate his demand barking.
Shadow Cruiser loves ripping around outside in the fenced yard, leaping in the air with ease to retrieve any of the bugs flying in his path and then enjoying a thorough roll in the grass. He rides extremely well in the car, crated or not. Shadow is doing well with basic commands (his "Sit" is excellent!) and leash walking, and will thrive in a home with people willing to take the time necessary to continue his training.
Shadow Cruiser is up-to-date on all routine vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered.
Shadow Cruiser came from a rural shelter with his three siblings.
