Handsome young Pluto has things in common with some other famous Plutos.  The mini-planet Pluto wanders around a bit out in space.  Our Pluto was wandering as a stray before he was rescued.  Disney’s dog is a cheerful pup with an expressive face, and our Pluto is too. The big difference is that the other Pluto’s have their own special places, and ours is still hoping for the place that is his very own.

Pluto is about 3 years old.  He weighs a sturdy 77 lbs, so he’s a pretty big boy. He’s a sweet, friendly guy who gets along well with the other dogs in his play group, and loves kids, too.   He can be a little on the shy side at first, but his nature is so sweet, he soon opens up and shows his happy face. And while at times he’s a bit puppy-ish, he’s never “goofy” (that’s a different one!)  He’s an active guy, so he’ll delight in joining you for walks and playtime.

Pluto is doing very well with his crate training.  He’s working on leash training and house training too, and he’s making great progress, but a little patience will be needed until he understands what you want him to do. He has been neutered and is up to date on all his vaccinations.

Pluto’s done his wandering.  Now he would love to come in from the dark and cold to his own special place.    And when he does, he’ll show you his happiest face, every day.

The fee for adoption is $450. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and transport fees.
