Meet Xerxes

Have you met the amazing and wonderful Xerxes?! It was as if the Energizer Bunny, the most snuggly animal in the world, and a military tank had a baby… compact, mighty, super cuddly, loving, intelligent, energetic, and zero concept of one’s size. That is Xerxes!

This 1-year-old, 45-pound sweetheart does everything at 110% and is eager to please those around him. Kong toys… ah they don’t stand a chance! Xerxes is looking for super-duper tough chew toys that will provide at least a few hours of fun. When his energy is spent for the day, he is the absolute BEST cuddle, snuggle bug!

Xerxes is super smart too and has been learning new things every day. He is still doing a little self-improvement when it comes to sharing and will enjoy continuing to work on this with his forever humans.

Another area of self-improvement is learning and being positively reminded each day that his humans love him and will come back. A routine with stability will be amazing for him and the comfort that he craves. However, currently when Xerxes is worried you won’t come back, he likes to talk about it… a lot. So, shared walls are not a match.

While Xerxes has had a great time playing with other dogs on playdates, he would prefer to be a monogamous mutt at home. And because sweet, sweet Xerxes has yet to fully understand his size we think that if there are any kids around, it would be great if they were older and dog-savvy.

Xerxes shared with us that he would L-O-V-E a fenced yard. Like, would make his day every day to be able to run around and play in a yard kind of love.

If you are ready to meet one of the sweetest pups who will keep you smiling and active, apply to meet Xerxes today!

Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, and microchip implant including registration. Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is often unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Due to post-adoption services provided, we prefer to adopt within a 90-mile radius of Minneapolis; however, we will consider up to 250 miles if the adopter is willing to drive to cities as needed.
