A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: How do you spell non-stop love and fun fun fun? N-O-M-A-D! They say laughter is the best medicine and nothing cures the blues like Nomad, it’s impossible to feel anything but joy with this little dynamo climbing up, down, and all around as he smothers every available inch of your face with kisses. Arriving at our door with his gentle twin sister Sahara (14999), it’s no surprise that Nomad loves other dogs and thrives in their company but he’s just as grateful to spend time with us humans and not shy about showing it either! Whether your pleasure is stand-up hugs, lap snuggles or wrestling-on-the-ground cuddles and kisses, Nomad is ready to deliver the good stuff any time and always with the sunniest of smiles. He walks nicely on leash and seems quite house trained but it’s his ‘sit’ that really stands out and does credit to the training of his former owner. Nomad is an endlessly energetic guy who almost never stops moving but he only has to be asked once and down goes that butt to wait for his treat reward–he nails it every time! We’re all mad about Nomad here at the Care Center and his happy-go-lucky energy is so contagious that I guarantee you’ll come down with a case of the giggles the moment you meet him. Adopt Nomad today and welcome love, laughter and happy doggy kisses home for the holidays!
