Darold is a 5-year-old Cur, Black-mouth mix. His quiet, calm, affectionate, and playful personality can light up any room. After napping, he has short bursts of energy and wants to play with everyone. After some attention and affection, a potty break, time outside exploring, and a nice sniff around the yard, he is satisfied and ready to nap again. He is potty trained, crate trained, and knows some commands. He is a well behaved dog who would love a home after being in the shelter for over a year! Stop by the shelter and see this lively boy!
