September 20, 2013 - "Fenway" - ADOPTED!
Trust us when we say you don't have to belong to Red Sox Nation to be a fan of Fenway. This Big Papi (almost 75 pounds!) is a sweet and gentle soul who lived successfully with toddlers in his previous home. He is a dream on leash and already has a great history of house training and basic obedience. He is not comfortable with other dogs, though, so he needs to be the only dog in the household. He also does not want to go to dog parks where all those unruly pooches try to get into his face. He is a dignified dog, with no desire to rough house with less refined canines. For fun and exercise, he'd prefer on-leash jogs with you, a raucous game of tug, or perhaps some fetch to round out the day. And, of course, he'd love some time by your side watching some fabulous fall baseball.
