Age: Adult

Special Criteria What does this mean?
Sanctuary visit required

Every time you see Radar, you can't help but smile. He's about as 'easy' as they come, because he's an all-around chill dude who is perfectly happy on walks, in the car or in a home. If you add in his striking blue eyes and soft coat, you have a perfect package. Radar was born in 2015. He prefers female doggie companions and has shown aggression toward cats in the past, so he cannot live with them.

Radar's back end is a little weak for being such a young dog. He's on some joint supplements and low-grade pain meds to keep him happy and comfortable, but he doesn't let this affect his zest for life. Radar came to the Sanctuary from a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network partner shelter, and he would love his own easygoing home.
