Carmel's story so far is a bit sad.. His pregnant mama was rescued from a kill shelter just in time to give birth to eleven puppies! Carmel and the others were supplemented with puppy formula, so he's a bottle baby with all the love that comes with it.

He was adopted at 8 weeks by a lovely older couple that just fell in love with his silly face and green eyes. Unfortunately, this was during the COVID crisis and Carmel did not have much opportunity to socialize. The adopters sadly decided to return Carmel because he was scared by the big world when it reopened.

He absolutely loves going for walks, and is dog safe. He does try to guard his toys and food. He is great with people he knows (including the weekly grocery delivery guy). He warms up to people quickly after meeting them. He is house trained, leash trained, crate trained, and bathes well. He knows the commands Sit, Stay, Leave it, Drop it, and Come. He loves to talk to you. He's a big goof! He loves to snuggle, and to be close to his people. He is a highly active dog so he needs either a yard or someone to take him on multiple walks as he is highly active. He loves to play with toys. Tug of war is his favorite.

This is a really good dog that just doesn't have the confidence to do new things without having someone help him. Patience, love, and training will help this beautiful boy shine!
