Clark is a handsome red male retriever/chow mix, approximately 4 years old. He was adopted out, but returned to the shelter because he is able to leap tall fences and loves to show his expertise as an escape artist. Clark loves people, and has been a volunteer favorite for off-site events. He has even visited residents at local nursing homes. While Clark is very friendly, he is also very strong and cannot be placed in a home with children younger than 15 or with cats. He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and has a one-year county animal license. Clark’s ID at Animal Services is D#10317347.
