Meet our Wet Nose Wednesday Featured Pet, Kakashi.

Shelter dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. It always breaks our hearts when we meet an older dog. We wonder about their story, and how they ended up in the shelter late in life. Senior dogs are special. Today's pup is the complete opposite. His name is Kakashi and he's just four months old.

Kakashi is a Heeler/Aussie mix.

This super-loveable dog is full of energy. He lit up our studio with his constantly wagging tail and playful personality. A real charmer, he's quick with the dog kisses and puppy hugs. He knows some basic commands like "sit" and, as common with this breed, he'll do best with plenty of human interaction to help keep him occupied and well-behaved.

Soft puppy fur. Sweet puppy breath.

Kakashi isn't a new-born, by any means, but he's still very much a puppy. As with any new pup, Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter recommends every pet owner enroll their new dog in a basic puppy training class. The shelter frequently hosts such events at minimal cost.
