Knox is an active and an incredibly smart boy, well-suited for an active person/family looking for an outgoing companion. Knox does best when he meets new people in a neutral area and can be somewhat reserved and discretionary when he meets someone for the first time. Once he becomes comfortable with someone, he is eager to bond. With his level of enthusiasm, Knox will require someone willing to help him get his exercise. His favorite playtime activities are fetching the tennis ball and playing tug-of-war.

Knox’s shelter buddy continues to work with him on manners and human socialization. He walks well on a lead and seems to have the potty basics down. He is beginning to enjoy car rides, having figured out car rides equals time out of the shelter/extra special attention. Knox prefers do run and be with dogs his size or larger. Why don't you come see Knox and fill out an application? He is eager to find his forever home to continue his transformation.
