Dog of the Week

Socrates (51167000

Meet Socrates, the wise 4-year-old Black Mouth Cur who's a delight to be around. He's a pro at walking on a leash and has the charming habit of returning when called by a whistle. Socrates' potty-training skills are top-notch, and while he’s mastering the "down" command to curb his jumping, his affectionate nature shines brightly. His love for toys, outdoor play, and treats makes him an endearing companion ready to bring joy and companionship to a loving home.
