Meet Doug, a handsome 6-year-old mix who's ready to find his forever home. Despite a cautious demeanor around strangers, especially men, Doug's loyalty and devotion shine through once he trusts you, making him the ultimate companion. He's developed a strong protective instinct since his previous family welcomed a child, so he's seeking a calm and understanding household, preferably with older children or adults who can appreciate his boundaries. Doug's simple pleasures include snacking, napping, and basking in the love of his family. He's crate trained, knows his basic commands, and is always eager to learn more, especially if treats are involved. If you're patient, consistent, and ready to earn his trust, Doug could be the loyal friend you've been searching for.
