Hello everybody out there! My name is Dawson. Believe it or not, I am family-less. I know it’s hard to believe when you look at me. I think I had a family at some point but they didnt keep me safe, so I was always out in the street. One day a human from Dogtown picked me up on a quiet dirt road, where I was just chilling with two other dogs, all of us clearly lost :( The one dog I was with, Tiara, is a bit of a celebrity at Dogtown. Anyway, let me tell you what I think the perfect home for me would be!

I am social when it comes to other dogs, for the most part. I really enjoy going out for walks and I walk really well on my lead too, which is a bonus!

I’ve been told I am a bit jumpy and that humans don’t like that kind of behaviour, so I have been working on that. I want to be on my best behaviour at all times for when my perfect family comes to meet me.

I have never met a cat before, but I am not sure how I would feel about sharing my space with a feline. But the humans here said they can cat-test me if needed.

While I work on my “jumpiness”, I think a home without any small kids would be best. Once I have mastered the “four paws on the floor game”, this will change.

I am super smart and learn really fast!

Please come meet me, I would love to be part of your family!
