Domingo spent part of his life in a dog-training program in a prison. He is very smart, and knows over two dozen visual and verbal cues. Extremely obedient, Domingo loves to perform for his people. He is a high-energy guy, and cannot live with cats or small dogs. His caregivers are working on introducing him to a few dogs his size, and he may be able to live with one in the future.

Domingo was born in 2010. He has some anxiety and an old leg injury from chasing balls. A handsome, friendly guy, Domingo can't wait to start a new life with a person of his very own.

Don't live near us? You're in luck! Domingo has a very generous supporter willing to pay to have him flown to his new home, anywhere in the US or Canada.

As part of our Single* pets adoption special, Domingo also qualifies for free adoption!

*Single pets do best as the only pet in the home.
