Meet Nate

Add to favourites

Oh hey there! My name is Nate, or as my closest friends like to call me, Nate Dogg or Nathan 🙂

I’m a BIG boy with beautiful amber eyes that seem to captivate anyone who has the pleasure of being in my inner circle. Although I’m young, handsome, and smart as a whip, I’m happiest when snuggling up on a big ol’ couch and getting pets from my human companions. When I’m not resting from all the hard work of eating snacks, walking in the forest, and getting belly rubs, I like to show off my zoomies in the yard carrying around my favourite stuffy.

The home I’m looking for is an adult-only home away from the hustle and bustle of the city, as city-life is not really my thing. Also, I’d like to be your one and only animal so I can be fully (and rightfully) spoiled. I have made some doggy friends in shelter, but I’m quite picky on those I associate with. Walking past other dogs is my weakness, so I need a strong and experienced paw-rent who can help me navigate these interactions and teach me that barking and lunging at others is not the best way to greet other dogs. I learn best through positive reinforcement training and would love to continue this training into my new home! I can’t wait!

Some other great things about me are that I take treats SUPER gently, I know ‘sit’ and ‘shake a paw’ no problem, and puzzle toys make me extra excited. I’m a smart boy so I need to have my brain stimulated too!

Long and short, if you are looking for a single animal companion to keep you warm at night, I am the guy for you! I am ready and more than willing to be your sidekick on the couch and to curl up beside you. Bonus points if you have a fireplace too…

The first step to take me home and meet me is to fill out the application below!
