Perkins came to rescue a few months ago as an unclaimed stray from a local impound. When he first arrived to rescue, the end of his tail was badly damaged and needed surgery to be able to heal.

Perkins is thought to be around a year old and he weighs around 40 pounds. Perkins is still in his chewing stage and needs Nylabones and other chews around to keep him busy. He would do best with someone who is home most of the time and only crated for short periods. If Perkins is crated for a longer period of time, he will bark and try to spin in his kennel. If this spinning occurs, he can damage the end of his tail in his kennel.

Perkins needs work on house training, but does well if he is able to be let out often. He is good with other dogs and likes to play at times. He absolutely loves Nylabones and other hard things that he can chew on. Perkins can be a little shy in some new situations so we would recommend him with older kids who aren't quite as loud and energetic. Perkins is not recommended for apartment or townhome living where there are shared walls.

Adoption fee is $350.00 + tax (no checks)

This dog will be at our adoption event at the Woodbury PetSmart on Saturday from 11-3 looking for a home!


Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
