Pilot is in the custody of a high kill shelter. He has a trainer who is VERY invested in him.


We can’t change Pilot’s past, but you can give him a bright future.

Pilot has been homeless for basically the past year (11/16/17). I know this dog inside and out. He is a jumper, and i know this from a past foster. He was an outside dog, and was not loved or given the attention he deserved in his old home. It took me months for him to come around at the shelter. He began to trust me and then eventually he started accepting strangers. He was very sensitive to touch and was very mouthy, he was also very selective with dogs when first at the shelter. He now loves hugs. He and i connected by training and playing fetch. This dog is brilliant, adventurous and LOVES THE OUTDOORS. This handsome guy and I would play fetch in the cold and he loved it… I worked with him daily when he was at the shelter. In this time he learned touch (verbal & hand signal), sit (verbal & hand signal), will wait to catch a ball or treat, knows the command halt, and turn. He is SMART AS A WHIP! He will do anything for ball or a treat, playful guy. He loves his back side scratched. He will Nuzzle his head in your lap and has learned hugs are pretty amazing. Pilot would love a large yard to play in and human to love. He’s a good dog!! Without the right home and handler he will escape and maybe be hit by a car, this is why a tall fence (6 foot) is a must for Pilot. This sweet dog has really come to trust & he adores his humans. I honestly fell deep in love with him (hence why I’m advocating for him), he wants to fall deep in love with his human, if only he was given the chance. The way he looks at me you can see hope and devotion in eyes. All Pilot is looking for is a one on one connection. He is DYING FOR CONNECTION. HE WANTS A BEST FRIEND to go hiking, camping, sit next to his person has they have their morning coffee and a beer in the evening. He is very loved & HE TRUSTS me to find him a home, to find his person!!! Please make a “seat” in your life, for….PILOT WILL BE YOUR CO-PILOT FOR LIFE!??
