ARPH #13791 (Seattle, WA)

Are you looking for someone to cuddle with? Dreyfus (#13791) is a six year old, oversized puppy who is pretty certain that all 68 pounds of him should be a lap dog.

He and his brothers, Sport and Sebastian, came to rescue after their person passed away. He has clearly known a lot of love, but has not had a lot of exposure to new things. He will need someone to help him adjust to new experiences, as he is still a little too excited in the car to ride well loose (unless he’s tired), and he is reactive and barks at people and dogs when out for a walk. He walks pretty well on leash when there aren’t any distractions present and he is always excited to GO!


Dreyfus is exceptionally sweet, wants as much attention as you’ll give him, and loves to play fetch with the tennis ball. Stuffed toys are fun too, but they may not survive his enthusiasm for long. Dreyfus is good with the female dog in his foster home, and has lived with two other male dogs previously. He is initially a bit reactive to meeting new dogs, but works thru it fairly well. Cats are an unknown, but it’s likely he’d chase if they’ll run. Although he might counter surf if given the opportunity, he’s very well behaved inside the house even when left loose and unattended.

If you are an approved ARPH adopter and interested in adopting Dreyfus, please submit an application.
