Look who’s back! πŸ‘€

Remember Onyx? Onyx came to us as a puppy, with his sister, Ruby. He was approximately 6months old in December. He was recently returned to the shelter for a few behavior issues. Onyx is now approximately 1 year old, and currently weighs around 45 lbs, is current on vaccines, has been neutered, and is microchipped.

Onyx is a very sweet boy, loves other dogs, and especially loves people. He is crate trained, potty trained, and does exceptionally well on a leash. He loves car rides, and can play with his toys until he has worn himself out!

Onyx has proven to be food aggressive with other dogs, and is a giant puppy who has knocked small children over to get to food. Because of this, we will only be adopting him to a family with no small children, and a home where he is an only dog. At least until he is trained, and his behavior problems are under control.

His adoption fee is $85 but his potential adopter still needs an approved adoption application.

Our adoption application can be found on our website at πŸ‘ˆπŸ½πŸ‘€
