Hello and how do you do? My name’s Bishop and I consider myself really, super lucky to be a Furkid. Well I mean all of us dogs at the shelter are fortunate but me especially since I’m kind of a Jekyll and Hyde. If you pass by me in my crate at the shelter you might think I’m some ferocious beast but it’s not the case at all once I’m out of the kennel. I just get really anxious when people are standing there staring at me and I have no choice but to let them since I’m kinda stuck. I’m sure many of you wouldn’t like it either. Furkids saw the sweet guy that I truly am and that’s why they chose to save me from a high kill shelter because they know I’d make someone a loyal best friend. Once you get me in the yard, I love to run around, chase balls and have a great time playing with other dogs. Kids are not really my specialty since they don’t get my personality. I’m more of a grown up’s cup of tea. Maybe you need a partner for your morning runs. I could totally fill that bill! Maybe you’d like a dog that isn’t jammed up in your face every five seconds begging for attention. That’s me! I’m pretty self-sufficient. That’s not to say that once we’ve made a connection that I wouldn’t enjoy having a good ear scratching, quite the contrary! I get really attached to those who give me a chance to get to know them. If I sound like an interesting, fun guy you’d like to get to know better, then please set up a time to come and meet me! Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover and don’t judge me in my kennel! Just ask someone to get me out and you’ll see the true Bishop.
