Loki is approximately 5 years old and 23 pounds. He has been in his current home since February 2019.Loki had a rough start and was found as a starving stray in December 2018 with severe heart worms as well as a wire collar that had grown embedded into his neck that had to be surgically removed. He is still a little sensitive around his neck and ears from that experience. He also has residual sensitivity in his armpits. He wants nothing more than to be around his family and will follow like a shadow. If you are inside, he wants to be inside. If you are outside, he wants to be outside, and will cry and scratch at the door until you are together. He is bonded to some family members, but not others.Loki is good with other dogs and loves to run and play. He is fun-loving and adventurous and has completed beginner and intermediate obedience training in the last six months.Available dogs are met by pre-approved adopters ONLY after a match is made.The application is the first step.
