ANGUS IS A YORKIE/SCHNAUZER MIX!
12/1/16 - CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! I need a family that loves to have fun. I'm a super happy boy with endless energy and love for life. I run, I play, I swim, I hike...... you name it, I'm up for it. I’m conveniently-sized and sturdily built, yet also elegant and athletic. My hair is tad more wiry, but I don’t shed and I have a whiskery face with a wise expression. I would probably do well with older children, but not younger ones since I can get rough.
I'm a very smart boy that is down for the activity, but at the end of the day, I'm the first one to want to snuggle and watch tv. I can be stubborn at times and need socialization so as not to bring my suspicious/shy personality into play. I can get along with other family animals, but can also be bold and fiesty with them.
How 'bout giving me a chance to fulfill your life in ways you could never imagine a pet could ever do. I promise we can have a blast together.
3/11/14 - Angus has been in his foster home since the first of November now and we are being able to tell a little bit more about his personality and what home would work best for him. We do know that he has a lot of energy and would need a large fenced yard. It also would help if the new owner is into exercise themselves and could bring Angus for daily walks or even to the dog park. He is a young pup who is very smart and needs an outlet for all that energy.
We are seeing that he would do best in a home with no small children and would probably be better with no small dogs. He is very strong for his size and sometimes when his little mind gets in overdrive he can run and bowl a small one (human or canine) over without meaning to. Cats would definitely be a no-no since Angus would just see them as fun prey.
We assume that a home with a larger dog would be a fit since Angus does love to play and could have a playmate without being too rough with it. A submissive larger dog would be better since Angus likes to think at times that he has a Napoleon syndrome.
On the flip side, Angus is a very sweet young man, that so wants a home of his own where he has a mom/dad to love him and let him sit in their laps and give him belly rubs. He loves attention and doesn’t mind giving it back. He is such a lover and very, very smart. He even tries to help with the laundry and other household chores. He is a fun, loving, smart and adorable guy who would bring someone a great deal of pleasure and entertainment. He just needs the correct home where he can blossom and be all that he can be.
11/5/13 - Angus’s previous mom felt it very difficult to surrender him; but with a baby and no fence for Angus to run in and get out his energy, she felt she wasn’t giving him all he needed. So she unselfishly reached out for YHR to take him in.
Angus is now in a foster home with other pups and has yet to try to play with any of them. He is very clingy with his foster mom currently and we are sure he is just afraid of being abandoned again. He has only been with us less than a week and his personality will come out and blossom in the next few weeks and then we will be able to tell the true Angus. He has the cutest under bite that gives him such an adorable look.
Information we can give that was provided by his previous family:
Angus is a very affectionate young man who loves to cuddle and be in your lap. He loves to sleep with his humans and on cold nights likes to be under the covers. He loves to be massaged and petted and gets so comfortable he will just lay there as long as you will rub him. Once he is comfortable with his people, you can’t hold back his licker. He loves to give kisses.
Angus is a very smart baby and learns routine pretty quickly if it is a stable and consistent routine. He is shy when meeting new people, but comes around when he feels secure. He loves playing with toys (although this has not started yet in his foster home, we can’t wait until he feels secure enough to go get a toy and play).
He loves to go for rides. He is typical yorkie and loves to help with the laundry (will grab a piece going from the washer to dryer if dropped and wants to play tug-o-war) and follows his humans EVERYWHERE.
Here is the funny thing. Angus loves to swim, but isn’t overly fond of a bath. He loves to go for walks, but is such an adventurous young man and pulls on the leash, so will need a secure harness and lead at all times.
Angus is longing for love and attention from his humans and has so much of the same to give in return. You will not regret applying for this baby boy as he is playful, happy, loving, attentive, and has such a great personality and zest for life.
