Dutch is a beautiful butterscotch brindle with expressive, almond-shaped eyes.
Dutch is the perfect combination of intrepid explorer and homebody cuddlebug-couch potato. He loves to go on walks and adventures! He is a medium-energy dog and needs someone who is active and likes to be outdoors. He is good on the leash and passes unfamiliar dogs politely, but would prefer to not meet them face-to-face when out walking.
He LOVES TO GO ON CAR RIDES. Seriously. He will sit happily in the car and go anyplace you want for as long as you want. The only thing Dutch loves more than car ride adventures is curling up next to his people for snuggling. Dutch is a really loving and affectionate dog. He is quiet in the house and will settle right down for naptime or some TLC.
Dutch is good with other dogs but they are not necessary for him to be happy. He would rather hang out with his people. He 100% crate-trained and house-trained. Dutch knows all his commands. He listens and wants to please.
Dutch is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative. He is in great health.
Dutch came into IAR from a rural shelter.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
