Clark, 4, is a professional belly-rub recipient. Few things in this world could make him any happier. Clark is the sweetest, most endearing fella you’ve ever met, provided that you meet him outside of his kennel.
In the kennel environment, Clark is a wild child. He just wants attention, so he is constantly barking and jumping and pacing. He was recently transferred from a shelter in southern Utah, where he had waited for over six months for a family. He became increasingly kennel-stressed there. Here’s what we were told:
“He came from a home for barking because he lived his whole 4 years outside with no attention at all. The owner said he was good with kids, dogs and cats. He was OK with dogs at first, but in the end he got where he was not good with dogs anymore. Once out of the kennel, he is a good boy and great on a leash. He is just craving affection and lonely. … He is selective about his canine friends, but he’d be fantastic in the right home with older kids or no kids and maybe hikers or active young people.”
