Meet Shere Khan
Ready to Jungle Book-it on over to the shelter to meet me, Shere Khan, named after the big bad tiger in Rudyard Kipling's beloved Jungle Book? Of course you are! I'm a tall brown lab/pittie mix who looks nothing like a tiger, so everyone should come meet me. I'm a fine fella who is in desperate need of exercise and a big yard to watch over. See my photos where I look so great in my red backpack? That was the day I got to be out for three hours of hiking, walking, and getting burgers at a fast food place. It was the best day of my life, and boy was it tough to come back to the shelter. And see my video of playing in the snow? My friends took me to a huge fenced yard so I could chase tennis balls. Loved it! I was found as a stray, and the kennel life is not the best for me. I might seem cooped up in my kennel, but I show my good stripes once I'm out for a walk with friends. I'm playful, energetic, and friendly. I jump sometimes, just because prior to arriving at the shelter, I had never been told not to jump. I can get mouthy too, so I should only live with kids over twelve. Obedience lessons should be in my near future, because a big fella like me needs to mind his manners! I cannot live with cats, and I might be able to live with dogs. I might do best with an experienced owner, in addition to getting love, exercise, and a steady routine. Let's hit the trails! I'll carry anything you need me to carry, but mostly I'll carry a great sense of appreciation and loyalty to the new family who adopts me.
