Our featured Wet Nose this week is a 5-year-old German Shepherd and Lab mix named Bambino (aka Dino). He's waiting to find his person at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Here's what our friends at YVAS have to say about this lovable young boy:

This handsome fella is ready to find his forever home! He is an explorer and would love to be your adventure buddy. He previously lived with 5 other dogs of ranging size and age and was a gentle playmate to all of them.  He’s smarter than the average dog and is affectionate, ambitious, and so very handsome. too. His big brain and wandering soul have gotten him into trouble; but it’s really a simple fix. It is true that Dino knows how to climb chain link fences. All this means is that he either needs a wooden or vinyl fence that can contain him or to not be left outside unattended, easy peasy!
