Hi Guys! My name is Casey. I’m one adorable pup with a sweet disposition and big, beautiful brown eyes full of puppy wonderment and joy. At only six months old and 40 pounds, I’ve already had to face the world on my own. I've learned far too young that it can be a scary place.
I was picked up as a stray in Arlington County, and no one ever came to claim me. Can you believe that!? All of a sudden, I found myself alone in a shelter, and I was pretty scared. The good people at the shelter have been looking out for me though, and contacted Mutts Matter to get me out of there and into a foster home. Things are starting to look up for me now.
At the shelter, I would get a little excited and barky meeting new people, but that’s only because I was nervous, and shelter living was not a good fit for an awesome young pup like me. When my Mutts Matter friends came to meet me, they took me on a walk and, within minutes, I had calmed down and could greet dogs and new people with ease and a happy tail wag.
I’m quite the handsome boy and Mutts Matter thinks I may be some type of smooth collie/hound mix. I have a very soft, medium-length coat, and the soulful eyes of a hound. I’m friendly and warm up to folks quickly, and I take treats very gently. I was the perfect model on my recent photo shoot and sat still for my pictures like a grown-up. Since I already know “sit” and “down,” it was a piece of cake, and they gave me a treat every time! Yay for me!
I really like other dogs and would do well in a home with a buddy who I can learn from and play with. I’m crate-trained and walk pretty well on a leash, but I need some practice. Like all young puppies, basic obedience training would serve me well and I will need daily exercise and play to stay healthy and balanced. Fortunately, exercise and play are good for humans too – so it’s a win-win for all of us.
I have a very even temperament and I’ve got a medium energy level. I can run and play with the best of them, but we can relax and hang out on the couch too. I’d love to be around kids, would be great with other dogs, and can be a fit with all kinds of families. Basically, I’m a sweet, cute, perfect little puppy in need of some people to love, so will you be my lifetime companion?
