Atlas was adopted from us when he was 2 months old. He was just returned because they don't have the time to train him. Atlas seems like a very gentle dog who is now scared because he found himself back at a shelter. His adopters tell us that he is housetrained & crate trained plus he walks well on a leash. He is a goofy boy who loves to play with toys & a game of "Fetch" if you're up for it. He is smart & knows some basic commands including "Sit" & he'll even be your co-pilot if you're going for a ride in the car.
Atlas is over a year old so he is fully grown at 67 pounds. Because he is still basically a puppy, he's got a lot of energy so he would enjoy a new home with people who are active & who have the time to teach him the ropes! And a fenced-in yard would give him an opportunity to run off some of that energy he's got!
Can you be the one to show this big guy some manners and give him some guidance? He's still basically a baby and he's growing up at a kennel. Give him a chance to show you what kind of dog he can be with the right kind of owner! Please fill out a Dog Adoption Application at www.ehrdogs.org & be sure to ask for him by name, ATLAS MAVERICK SCAS!
