(Web viewers: See John Wayne's video below!)

John Wayne is a star. One of our volunteers took him home for an overnight and this is what she had to say:

"John sometimes seems a bit stressed at the Shelter but at home he was really mellow. He was great in the car, loved going for walks, and had zero issues with the two big dogs at my house. We took him on multiple car rides, dinner at a friend's house, and a trip to CVS. He was super friendly to all the people he met. He clearly is comfortable in a home situation. He loves being a mellow lap dog. He did no barking while he was with us. He was good about doing his business outside with the other dogs (although has had an accident or 2 while at the Shelter). When it was time to got to bed he did a little happy dance at the foot of the bed and then burrowed into the covers where he was warm and toasty. This is one sweet little dog." JP
