Big fan of: His people—playing with them, getting exercise together and snugglefests. Champion also likes to play with other dogs, but he’s still learning how. Give this sweetie a toy and you’ll be friends for life. He can’t get enough!
Not a fan of: People who seem unusual, which can be scary to Champion. That’s why he needs a family who will help him realize that there’s no reason for fear, and that the world is a great place to be a dog.
Special features: Champion is super motivated to learn new stuff, and he’ll do great in obedience classes at the ASPCA. In the right hands, he’ll grow up to be a model pup in no time. He already knows Sit and is learning Down!
Other reasons he’s special: Champion had to have surgery for broken front paws when he was a puppy, and we had to put steel rods in his legs to repair his breaks. Now he’s a little bionic puppy.
Dream home: Champion is an energetic guy—he is still a teen, after all—so he’ll need an experienced adopter who can provide him with lots of playtime, obedience training and exercise. His adopter should be prepared for the challenges (and fun!) of a young dog and be ready to handle it. A teens-and-up household would be perfect.
