“Hi! Hi! Hi! These nice people that take care of me call me “Isaac” now. It doesn't matter whatever I used to be called, because even though my other people gave me an orange collar, when I was running and got lost, they never came to get me from the scary shelter. I used to live in Georgia, but am told the name of this new, colder place is Ohio. Whoo! That was a looong ride, but I took it in stride. Well, I tried to. I was a little scared, but I love people, and I got to meet lots of new, nice people! And these new people, they give me lots of food and treats! They like that I'm gaining weight, but I just like that they are giving me treats! And the humans, I've got them trained well. If I sit, they throw my ball! They tell me this isn't my permanent home though, so if I must choose another home, I want another one that will play with me and take me on long walks. A big yard to play in would be great! I would love a friend to play with too!”

Isaac is an approximately 2 year old, energetic boy! He is strikingly handsome, and a small 40lbs. He could still stand to gain a little weight, but he's not a very big guy. He would love to be adopted by a very active family! He is good with other dogs, cats, and children. He is sweet, and sometimes slightly timid of new things, but recovers and investigates! Trash cans on the side of the road, whoo, those were scary and he told them so, but he learned they won't hurt him either and he even got treats for sniffing them! He likes to play with other dogs, but making new friends can be a little intimidating at first. He is sharing his toys well with all the other dogs in the home, and boy does he love toys! In all forms! Tennis balls, rope toys, squeaker toys! He loves them all! But beware, he's a squeaker destroyer! His forever family may have to become a Doc Mcstuffins. Isaac is doing very well with housetraining and has not had a single accident in the home. Isaac is learning all sorts of new things in his new home including sit, down, stay, and leave it. He has excellent crate manners – he goes in on command and waits patiently until you tell him it is okay to come out. He walks well on a no-pull harness, but will pull occasionally with moderate strength on a regular collar. Walking on a loose leash with a regular collar continues to be a work in progress... birds and squirrels and bunnies are just all so interesting!!! He's learning to get off furniture when asked, and not to jump up on people. He loves people so much, so that one is hard to remember! He is smart, and learning fast, and will make an excellent addition to the right family!

(Isaac was formerly known as Knarla)
