Meet Champ! Champ was found as a stray in the streets of Alabama. When we first got him, he was very skinny and could barely walk bc he was shot with a pellet gun which was confirmed with an x-ray. It was recommended not to remove it and it no longer bothers him. In fact, he would be a jogger's dream. Champ is on the petite side (standing next to you he's a little over a foot tall.

Champ is a beautiful fox red color. He's good in car-on-car rides and can ride safely free roam in your vehicle. He is crate trained and housebroken. Loves to play with balls and squeaky toys. He will chase the ball but hasn't quite learned how to bring it back yet.

Champ has never met another dog he didn't like! He's an energetic boy that will require exercise but is currently burning off most of his energy playing with his foster siblings, especially the puppy, all day! When it comes to people, Champ's a very good boy. He's not nervous, but rather calm when meeting new people, including children. He loves to snuggle.

Champ is an all around amazing dog! His friendliness and affection are a testimony to his personality since he obviously had a very rough start (or at least the last few months). The local shelter director says they rounded up a litter of duped pups near where this dog was found about a year ago, and she feels strongly that this dog may be from the same litter and wasn’t caught.
