Burke is an absolutely wonderful dog. The only thing definite about his breed is that it is mixed. He sniffs like a hound, runs like a husky, learns quickly like a shepherd, jumps up on and over EVERYTHING like a border collie, is loyal like a lab, and loves his “person” like any dog breed. After a play session, Burke just lays down next to his person and relaxes. He is very affectionate when he gets to know you a little. Burke currently shares an apartment with another dog at the Pine Street location. The two dogs get along great. Hiking, running, and riding in the car are some favorite activities for Burke. He loves to chase squirrels in the park, play fetch with his toys, run fast, and practice his commands. Burke follows hand signals very well. He knows sit, down, stay, come, and turn around. Burke is an awesome car rider, just sits in the back seat and looks out. We are currently working on overcoming Burke’s fear of sudden movement and his hesitancy around children. So, at this point, Burke would prefer an active adult home.
PLEASE NOTE THAT BURKE IS IN A FOSTER HOME, NOT AT OUR PINE STREET SHELTER.
