Most people look for puppies when adopting a shelter dog, but even though Sanford is a little older, he's got that puppy playfulness with adult dog smarts.

Today here's your chance to meet Sanford:

Sanford is around 10 years old and is a Maltese Mix. Now don't let his age fool you, he's got tons of energy, and behaves just like a puppy. He get's along well with everyone, even other dogs, and he'd make a great lap dog. We think he's a little hard of hearing, or it just might be selective hearing. If your looking for a low maintenance fun loving smaller dog, then Sanford is your pooch.
