He is a top notch fetch player! Messi is around 4 years old but set his sights on a pool, stream or river and he goes into full puppy mode with excitement, splish splashing about in the water.  After a bit of exercise, he enjoys lounging about in the sun or snuggling with his buddies.  Messi also likes spending time with his dog teammates as well! *Messi is on a training plan and requires more than one visit with our Behavior team.

Please understand we cannot hold any pet. All adoptions are done on a first come, first adopt basis for approved applicants.The Shelter software system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.  We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
