Hi! I’m Canyon! Or if you prefer Cany! Thanks for checking out my page! For being such a young guy I have sure faced some challenges! You see I was found in South Dakota with a face full of porcupine quills and some other extensive injuries. My foster momma saw my picture and said, “that boy needs our love!” so her and poppa made a call and here I am! I’ve had some ups and downs with my medical needs so I'm going to be hanging out with them for a little while longer but that’s ok! They have lots of friends for me to play with! I have 4 doggie friends and 4 kitty friends here! I love to play and wrestle with my doggie friends! Those kitties though are super interesting! I like to play with them but sometimes I can get a little rough but they tell me when they’ve had enough and I leave them alone. I also have a 12 year old human brother here! He loves when I climb all over him. Sometimes I don’t realize how big I am and probably wouldn’t do well with little kids because of that. I am completely potty trained and am left out of my kennel when momma and poppa go to work and I don’t have any accidents! I love squeaky toys, balls, and plushy toys! Momma and Poppa just fenced their yard in for us! But before that I was walking daily on a leash and loved it! I am quite the snuggly boy as well! I love to be held, even though I'm a big boy, and loved on constantly!
