A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: “A REAL CHARMER”
When I approached Bagel’s kennel he was so happy to see me, and we hadn’t been formally introduced yet. Once out of the kennel, I found myself on the receiving end of a nice bug hug. Once we exited the shelter, he did his business and spent the remainder of his walk exploring his surroundings. Bagel pulls a bit on leash, but I found him to be a good walking Buddy. Bagel is a “fun” dog. He likes to play fetch/keep away, which had me laughing at his antics. Watch his video, and click the Adopt Me Button if you’re interested in finding out more about him.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
H – Healthy
Potential challenges: Strength/leash pulling
Potential challenges comments:
Bagel pulls hard on leash. He is a large, strong dog who has the capability to pull over an average adopter. His adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that he be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which helps diminish his strength through leverage, and that he be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.
