Dapple is a 3-year-old terrier mix who weighs 25 pounds -- the perfect size if you're looking for a smaller dog.

He can be a bit shy at times and is a little unsure of why he's here after his previous owner surrendered him to us. He would love to get back to a cozy home setting where he can relax and be your buddy!

Dapple has been neutered and he is good in a home with cats. His adoption fee is $175.

Please know that if you come to meet any of the dogs at our facility, they may be excited to see you and extra active. Many times, this is not a true picture of how they may act in a warm, safe home setting. We, as volunteers, often take our shelter dogs on home visits and they become calm and act like completely different animals. This pertains to potty habits and demeanor. Please realize that they need a chance to shine out of the shelter setting!
