Vader was born in 2011, but he still has lots of energy to burn. That makes him a great hiking, jogging or adventuring buddy. Vader also loves people. He has super soft fur and some serious snuggling skills. He'll be happy to just cuddle up with you and give you kisses in between adventures. Vader is picky with his doggie friends, and he does not do well with cats. He also has the tendency to guard his food, so he will need someone who can understand and work with him on that. He'll do great in an active home with someone who can give him a little guidance.

As part of our Single and Loving It adoption campaign, Vader qualifies for a waived adoption fee and a free flight home, anywhere in the US or Canada!
