    Hi I’m Sailor, as my name suggests I LOVE the outdoors for hiking, running and splashing around in water!

    “My name is Sailor, I’m just over a year old. I was born in AARCS care and was raised by some fantastic foster homes. As an adolescent puppy, I became fearful of strangers and had a really hard time when left alone. I’m growing out of this phase and learning that people are great, I come up to them wiggling and smiling.

    I do well with slow introductions to household critters, I play with the cats and sometimes bark and get excited when I see the rabbits. I get very excited when I see squirrels outside, they run so quick up those trees and away. I play very well with my two foster dog brothers, I share my toys with them, wrestle and run around. I am still quite young, so a younger dog to play with or doggy daycare are both great opportunities for me to get out to socialize.

    I’m a very smart boy and I LOVE problem solving, give me a food puzzle toy, ball pit with treats or new environment and I have no problem exploring and figuring things out. I’ve been working on skills such as Touch, Sit, Down, Recall, Stand and others. I love learning!

    I still have some separation anxiety, but activity and my medicine have really helped me to be calm and content at home. I have been left alone in the house crated for eight hours at a time, and I settle quickly, eat my frozen kong, and curl up until my foster mom gets home.”

    If you’re looking for an active buddy that lays on your feet at night, that’s me!
