Hershey [Adopted 3/18/2012] is a 5 year old male who came to us from a southern shelter.  He was found in a home with several other dogs all of whom were thin and matted.  He had to be shaved down because of the  mats.  When his hair grows back he will be a beautiful  chocolate color.  He is housetrained and is willing stay in his crate at night.  Once the family is up he wants to be with his humans.  He loves to sit in your lap or if you are a late sleeper he may join you.  Hershey is a gentle dog who does very well with other dogs and cats.  He loves to ride in the car or go for walks.  His foster mom says he does need more work on the leash.  Hershey  has proved he is a smart little fellow as he has already learned to sit  and gently take a treat.  As his nutrition improves, so does his energy level.  This boy is not a couch potato.  He would like to get in the yard or go to the dog park and run a couple of laps.
