Personality Color: orange

Orange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!

Stretch recently went on a doggy day out, here’s what the human had to say about him:

“Stretch went on a doggie day out on October 29th & absolutely loved it. He got right in the car & melted into the seat enjoying the breeze from the open windows. He went to Eno for a short walk. Stretch didn’t pull at all & allowed all who walked by to pet him if they wanted to. He is a social fellow. He is also scared of his own shadow, so some confidence building & love is necessary for any adopter. We sat by the stream and listened the running water. He loved getting pets in snuggles in a peaceful place. Eventually we moved back to the car and ventured to downtown Durham. It was busier there which made Stretch a bit nervous, however he was still a gentle man. We got coffee together in the dog-friendly coffee shop, Foster Street Coffee. Stretch enjoyed a pup-cup of whipped cream and doggie treats. We sat on a secluded bench and enjoyed our treats. He would be a prefect pup to sit with and read a book or enjoy a beverage with. Eventually we made our way back to the shelter. While waiting for the play yard to open, Stretch showed his silly side & rolled in the grass. He definitely is a goofy loving man. Once in the play yard, he was not interested in toys, just snuggles. Stretch would is a perfect dog, who is gentle & loving. He deserves a loving, calm furever home.”
