Background: If you have resolved to lead a healthier lifestyle and get more exercise, Friar may be just what you need: an enthusiastic partner – one who is never too busy or not in the mood for a walk. If he had a motto, it would be "Come on! Let's go!" Surprisingly, he is not one of the extreme "high-energy dogs" – he enjoys quiet times and is very affectionate – but this dog loves to get out and go for a walk. He scampers along, and looks back every minute or two to make sure you are having as good a time as he is. His size makes him easy to handle on a leash.
You can meet Friar and many other lovable pets at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
