My name is Irish. I'm sure you recognize me! I have some quirks that seem to deter adopters. But I also know how good of a dog I can be and how much I will love you. I've been turned into the shelter three times now. My biggest challenge is separation anxiety. I don't like being away from you. I try to be okay with it, but it is hard for me. I would love a home where my owners are home most of the time, and can work with me to help me understand they will always come home to me. I want you to know that I am a much different dog in the home than in the shelter environment. I like taking naps with you in the home, I will take any chance I can to ask for a belly rub, and I love to greet people when I see them. I do have a bit of energy. Luckily, running is one of my most favorite things to do. And I am good at it! I'm only 33 pounds and I don't pull very much on the leash so I am easy to take with! I can go for miles and can keep up the pace with you. I'm about 6 years old and am neutered. I've been at the shelter for about 5 months. It is a difficult place for me regardless of how hard my people here try to keep me calm. I used to enjoy hanging out with other dogs my size or larger, but lately I've preferred to just be by myself. Once I am able to calm down a bit in a home setting, I may be able to be re-introduced to other dogs. I am not a fan of smaller dogs, though. However, I am respectful of cats and do well with them if they are nice to me, too. My friends at the shelter tell me that I am really a good boy, but that I do need a specific family who can help me overcome things that are obstacles for me. I want a family to love. Please consider coming to meet me. I hope you will give me a chance. Love, Irish.
