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!

Kids: 8+ dog-savvy kids, worried by novel objects, supervised time with kids

Dogs: Playful, may be too much for some, overwhelmed by others. Slow and careful intros

Walnut recently spent some time on a doggy day out, here’s what the humans had to say about her:

“Wonderful Walnut came home with me for a few hours today. She is truly calm and impressive in a home setting. She quickly turns into a goofy chocolate lab. She jumped right into my truck and talked to me a good part of the way home. She has an amazing range of interesting vocalizations (in the car only, not a woof otherwise). At my house, we went for a walk in the nearby woods and explored the garden. Walnut loves the woods and sniffing all the smells. She had an encounter with my native fothergilla and got several white flower petals on her face. Unexpectedly, Walnut met our cat and was very well behaved with her. Once I figured out she seemed fine with the cat, I let her loose in the fenced yard and she got her zoomies out. She is very smart and trainable. She knows sit, down and paw (even upside down). She did yoga with me. I found her relaxing to be around. In the afternoon, she fell asleep with her head on my legs and I had a very hard time taking the sweet, smart, and gorgeous girl back to the shelter.”
