Bishop Apply to adopt me

Or, make a donation toward my care:

Physical Description: Bishop has a very soft coat that is primarily tan—with a white muzzle, chin, and chest, and mostly white toes. He has amber eyes and a pink nose.

Personality: Bishop warms right up—even to strangers—and wants to say hi to everyone he meets. He wiggles his butt, bends down, turns his head sideways, and thumps his tail. He’s the most friendly and easy and adaptable dog I’ve ever seen! He likes his toys; loves learning new tricks and playing tug; and knows Sit, Balance, Stay, and Off, and has other basic training. Bishop enjoys playing with other dogs, but he still needs to learn other dogs’ signals, and be introduced to them slowly. He is crate trained and housebroken. Bishop enjoys sleeping on the bed with me! He likes to please, plays without using his teeth, and is very relaxed around older children (he hasn't been around small children). Bishop likes to follow me around and doesn’t bother anything in the house. I’ve been fostering both him and Piper Longstocking, and they get along great! I think Bishop would love to be adopted by an active family with a fenced yard.

History: Bishop came to us from a rural shelter as an emaciated stray.
