Adoptable dog Shakes is fearful of skateboards, but otherwise loves to spend time outdoors! 

Meet Shakes!

Sweet boy Shakes (A458050) is 3 years old and was surrendered to our shelter because his owner wasn't able to care for him any longer. According to the previous owner, Shakes is an adventurous boy – he enjoys swimming, riding in cars, boats and kayaks. He is friendly with women, men, children, cats and dogs, especially smaller dogs. Shakes is fearful of skateboards but does fine around bikes. He would do well in a home with a family who enjoys spending time outdoors, as this boy loves to run and indulge in nature. Help us find Shakes his forever home!
