Navajo is a playful pup who is the first of his litter to tug on a toy or find a great stick outside. Navajo is eager to romp in the backyard and will follow his foster mom around and explore the outdoors. He is clearly a smart boy with lots of confidence. He is still sleeping with his brothers, but is generally quiet in the house unless it is meal time. With his playful personality and cute white flash on his chest, Navajo is sure to win hearts.
