Hi! My name is Saint. True to its meaning, I am kind, virtuous and patient. In fact, I’m so patient that I have been waiting almost a year for my forever home! It doesn’t take much to make me happy… just a lap to sit on, Pupperoni and snuggles. I am a special boy and because of that, I require a special family. My first few years haven’t been the best so usually, I am scared of young children and other dogs. For that reason, I would prefer to be the only loyal dog to my humans. I promise to protect you, keep you warm, steal your bed covers, steal your lap, but most importantly steal your heart. I can’t look humans in the eyes without sneaking in kisses. With that being said, I am very trainable and motivated by treats and positive reinforcement. I know how to sit, give my paw and shake! I LOVE walks and runs. As you can see, I am a big boy so I need an experienced owner with a strong grip… and ideally, a big yard where I can sunbathe and dream about Pupperoni. You can tell when I’m happy because my ears will stand straight up! I am hoping I can leave my shelter days in the past and begin my next chapter. Will you be the right fit and help me understand true love?
