This week in our Paws in the Park series – where staff or volunteers take dogs on an adventure – we’re featuring Champ!

We truly don’t know why this 5-year-old Lab/Aussie hasn’t been adopted yet, except for that maybe he is a bit distracted when meeting people for the first time. What can we say!? There is a LOT going on here, and it can be overwhelming for some dogs.

When staff member Jessie got him out of the kennel environment and to the park, Champ’s personality shone though. He LOVES the water and jumps right in to get his swim on. He does well with other dogs but does have a bit of a prey drive with regards to squirrels. He lost his home when the kid went off to college but the family didn’t want to keep him.

If you are the outdoorsy type – maybe you need a dog to go on adventures with! Maybe you need to come meet Champ 🐕
