Yard requirements: Given his energy level, a fenced-in yard would be ideal so he can run around safely.

Kids: Due to his exuberance and enthusiasm, Flotsam would do best with children 6 years and older.

Dogs and cats: Great with other dogs (especially those his own size), but has never been tested with cats.

Health issues: None.

His story: Flotsam was picked up as a stray and transferred to VBSPCA in early February of this year.

His ideal forever home: Flotsam would flourish in a loving, active family who would be committed to continuing his obedience training, and providing him with plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. He would also love a canine brother or sister who would enjoy playing with him.
