Dante

2 Year Old.  Neutered Male.  Akita Mix.  48.6 lbs.

Well, I’m as handsome as can be if I do say so myself!  I’m a sweet fella and once I get to know you I’m outgoing and fun to be around.  I will need a patient owner who will give me the time I’ll need to settle in and relax and then my personality will blossom.  I walk nicely on a leash and I’m looking forward to walks, hikes and other outdoor adventures with my new family.  I’m a great size for going along on trips!  I don’t play with toys very much but once I settle into my new home I may.  I arrived at RCHS on March 25 from a busy shelter in West Virginia where I’d been since June so, needless to say, I’m very happy to be in Vermont where I can’t wait to meet my new family.  I have no known history with dogs or children but I may do well with them.  If you already have a dog at home it will be important that we meet to make sure we get along.  I don’t do well with cats so I can’t go to a home with cats, small animals or small dogs.  I have not been socialized very well and am very shy and cautious around new people and new places so I will need a patient owner who will give me the time I need to relax and settle in.  I hope my family takes me places and introduces me to lots of people so I can appreciate them and relax a bit.  If you have the time and patience to help me adjust to my new life I know you’ll be rewarded with a lovely companion for years to come.  Stop by and say hi!
