Needs a home with a yard: he would enjoy a yard. Would do better with privacy fencing. When he first arrived at boarding, he paid very close attention to the fencing and seemed to be looking for a way out. He was not very socialized at this time though and did not care much about the people with whom he now engages. Still, initially he should be observed very closely in any type of fenced enclosure.
Needs a home with another dog: no
Can live in an apartment: not ideal

History: Mr. Black showed up as a stray and had the good fortune of being found by someone who works at one of the local vet offices. They took him in, fostered him, fattened him up, treated his heart worms, and got rid of his fleas and parasites. They also worked to socialize him and help him realize humans aren’t so bad after all! He enjoys playing ball and getting pets, something he didn’t care for at all to begin with.
