Comments:  Deriko is such a nice boy!  He came to us from a downstate shelter and was found as a stray so not much was known about his background.  He has a gentle nature about him, but he is a young powerful dog, too.  As he shows you when you take him for a walk!  He likes to pull so we’d need an owner with some physical strength.
Deriko does fine with other dogs, but we’ve not tested him with small dogs.  Given his size and playful nature, we’d probably want dogs 30lbs and larger in his home.  A nice fun girl who likes to chase would be his ideal.  He is crate trained and appears to be house trained.  He is past that crazy teenage phase and with a little training, he’ll make a fantastic forever dog!

I want to apply to adopt a dog!

All dogs are:

  • spayed or neutered prior to adoption
  • evaluated for temperament and trainability
  • up to date on ALL shots, including Bordetella (kennel cough)
  • heartworm tested and on preventative year-round
  • micro-chipped for identification
