In shelter Dog

Smithfield, NC, 27577
Pet name:
Red / Chestnut / Orange
Coat length:
Clayton is a wonderful family dog. He loves children and other animals. He has been around lots of different breeds of dogs at his dog sitter’s house and cats as well. He sleeps most of the day, but loves to play tug of war and go on walks daily. He needs frequent exercise to keep his weight in a healthy range. He has a chicken stuffed animal toy that is his comfort item. He likes to suck on it while he is relaxing which is really cute. Clayton is very food motivated, so that means food needs to be kept out of reach at home or he will eat it. He also will get into trash if it is not put away. He loves being with his humans and does not like to be separated from them, so he will do best in a home where the family is home
majority of the time. Someone who works from home and has a fenced in yard would be preferable for Clayton since he does not like to be alone. He does bark when he hears noises or people/animals passing by, but it is usually short lived. He sleeps in a crate at night and is not an early riser! Additionally, he does great on car rides so he would be a great travel companion too. Clayton is 6 years old and weighs 40lbs.
