Morty’s fosterer writes...
Morty likes people. He likes people better than dogs, and would rather be the only four-legged member of the family. This sweet, soulful guy is happiest getting scratched – hard – along his spine, or just flopping down next to you. Morty came into our program after being taken away from his owner, who apparently had not provided appropriate care for him or let him play with other dogs. Although he enjoys being petted and curling up next to his foster mom on the couch, Morty does not seem to understand how to relate politely to other dogs. He will bark at them when they get too close, and shows no interest in interacting with the two dogs in his foster home.
Morty is smart. The only command he knew when he came into our foster program was sit. (He sat very well.) Now he also knows down, stay, wait, shake, touch, leave it, drop it… and he’s working on going through legs (the first move in the Arthur Murray School of Dog Dancing).
Morty likes peanut butter. He also loves to chase toys, especially squeaky toys. He cannot catch worth a darn. He doesn’t mind getting a bath, so he would probably be a great beach dog.
Morty is 7, but still has the enthusiasm of a puppy. At about 60 pounds, he’s too enthusiastic for young kids, but is fine with older ones. He’s neutered, chipped and up-to-date on everything he can be up-to-date on.
If you are interested in Morty, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (https://sites.google.com/pgspcavol/applications).
Morty IS expecting to attend the next adoption show, April 26th at the Bowie PetSmart, 12-2, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute. Plan on metting Morty outside, at the entrance to the store!
