Hello, nice to meet you! My name is Shamus. I am a 3.5 year old golden retriever/ basset hound mix. I will be 4 years old in July, how fun! I am good with kids and other dogs, but I'm a bit cautious around cats. I am shy around strangers, but once I get to know you you'll see what a friendly, loving guy I am. I absolutely love the dog park and might live there if I could, but I love my foster home, too. Sometimes I run so much at the dog park that I get a little sore with something called "arthritis" for a few days. My favorite toys are balls that squeak. I like my crate, too, and am trained to sleep in there. I have been told often that I am a good boy.
