Turtle was adopted!
Maltese Mix

Big fan of: His special people! Turtle is super affectionate once he gets to know you. He also likes to be in the middle of whatever it is you’re doing. (Washing the dishes? Folding laundry? Watching a movie? Turtle will be there.)

Not a fan of: Other dogs. Turtle wants to be your one-and-only pup and definitely doesn’t want to spend time at the dog park.

Special features: Turtle comes housetrained, though he’ll need a refresher in your home, and he knows lots of basic commands already. What a smartypants.

Other reasons he’s special: Turtle is really friendly with his friends, but it takes him some time to come out of his shell. He’s also a bit nervous in new situations, but we’ll show you how to get Turtle more comfortable with the wide world outside his house.

Dream home: Turtle is uncomfortable around children, so he’d like an adults-only home, please.
