Our featured Wet Nose this week is a sweet old fella who's looking for his forever home in Billings. Meet Dante. He's an 11-year old American Bulldog mix available for adoption at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

Here's what our friends at YVAS have to say about our guy Dante:

We’re not saying Dante is the best dog in the shelter right now… (yes, we are, we totally think he’s the bee’s knees)… But he’s a very, very good boy. He’s been a junkyard dog most of his life and has the face to show it. Don’t be put off by his scruffy face- this dog has a heart of gold. He’s also 100% convinced he’s a small dog and that your lap is the best seat in the house. The biggest head, with the biggest heart! Dante is such a sweet old man, we all wish we could take him home. This handsome fella might be considered a senior, but he’s still a young puppy at heart! Dante has lived with dogs before, but can be picky – so we highly suggest a dog meet before adoption. He loves snacks, cuddles, and playtime! How could you resist taking home that mug?! He’s a businessman and is always making deals and shaking on them in exchange for treats. (We don’t think he knows what he’s agreeing on, though).

UPDATE: Our featured Wet Nose from last week, Piper the Border Collier / Lab mix has found her person. Thanks to you, we have a 100 percent adoption rate with animals featured on Wet Nose Wednesday.
