About Volik

“Arrrrrr Matey! If you need help digging for some gold, I’m your guy! I’m a young guy who didn’t really get to be a playful pup earlier on as I had to heal from a broken jaw and an eye infection (I now have one eye if you didn’t notice). Happy to note that I am perfect now and am making up for time lost!

Despite my fosters mom’s best efforts I tend to not know the difference between my toy and human bodies while playing, but that’s only because I’m so excited to be playing and have been restraint! If no one is around to play with then you’ll find me close by snoozing around. I like to be close to my people and my foster mom says I’m the best snuggler.

I’m a pretty chill guy though and I love food, like SO MUCH. My foster mom has to keep a close eye on me during walks as I tend to want to eat anything and everything, my smelling sense is extraordinary and I will find something. So, if you have some kibble .. I’ll pretty much learn any new trick you want to teach me!

Have I mentioned that I love kids? I look forward to them being old enough to play with, but for now I’m patient and let them give me all the squeeze hugs with a wagging tail, I can’t say the same about men, I’m a little wary at first towards males but give me some treats and let me know you’re a good guy and I’ll be your furever friend. I love women, but who doesn’t? I follow my foster mom around where ever she goes.

I’m eager to find that perfect family for me to grow old with and have been told that I’ve already stolen the hearts of my current foster family and they swear I’m going to be the best family dog as I grow and learn. I would do best in a home with a yard to play in. If you have another dog in the home, they must be calm and sociable to help me come out of my shell and we would need to meet first, to ensure it’s a good fit!

Looking for a loyal, fun, calm, protector & adventurer? I’m you guy!” – xo, Volik
