Ok, seriously. How can you not love this face?? If you look closely, you may recognize this guy. He made an appearance on my blog once before. This time the lighting is softer, and the angles are better but its the same sweet boy. (Don’t recognize him? Check here)
He is the most recent dog to be removed from the place on the east side. His first fosters were calling him Max, but we have SOOOO many Maxes, and it just didn’t seem to suit him. He has the most intelligent looking facial expressions, and he catches on really quickly so we were trying to go for a “smart” name. Dante is part German Shepherd, part Heeler. He’s maybe 2-3 years old, and really not all that big. But he’s very sweet and very smart.
When I first saw him in the car when the gal dropped him off, he reminded me a LOT of Kodiak. Kodi does have some shepherd in him, though its not the first breed you think of when you look at him. But its something about their expressions, and their mannerisms that is strikingly similar. And the two of them get along really well, which is a relief.
He is crate trained and housebroken (unless its my day off and I sleep until eleven, and then I may wake up to find a puddle near the door) and he LOVES attention. He is also food motivated, which makes training (and taking pictures) easy peasy. Really, he is going to be a fantastic dog for the right family, so if you are looking for a dog to adopt in Lubbock, you should check him out!!
