He enjoys hiking and exploring the outdoors during his Dog Day’s Out outings. Before heading back, he likes to get a juicy burger as a reward for being such a good pup. While Jaelen loves meeting new dogs, shelter staff suggest he would do best being the only dog in a household. Stop by the shelter today to meet this lovely boy.
