My name is Atreyu and I am looking for a new home.  I am a 16-month old soon-to-be-neutered Cane Corso and weigh in at 120 pounds.  I was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming and have been with my current human family of two adults and two boys (ages 11 and 14) since I was 9 weeks old. I also live with 3 other dogs (2 females and 1 male).

My family provides me with things I enjoy the most…rope toys, belly rubs, chew toys, Nyla bones, treats, cuddles and food!  I had been living my best life until recently when my older dog brother (5 years) and I can’t seem to get along anymore.  This is why my family needs to find a new home for me where I can be safe and happy.  My dog sisters and I do great together.

I get a little nervous with strangers but once I warm up I’m a big lover. I get very scared and sad when my family leaves me with someone else to take care of me for a while and will whine until they return.  I do really well on long car rides, and would love to have lots of space to run, play and go on walks, like I have now.  I am also crate-trained so when my family is out for a little while, I relax in my crate and snooze ????.  I even like sleeping in my crate if they are home!

If you could be patient with me and love me then I promise I’ll be a great dog!!! Hopefully you will fall in love with me and I can be laying in your lap in no time.
