Birdie is approximately 3 years old, perhaps younger as he a rrived in our care severely gaunt and neglected which often seems to age a dog to appear older. However - This did not stop Birdie from being a loving dog, a joyous and perpetually happy dog, so full of vim & vigour and always ready for the next adventure with an ever wagging tail. He's highly intelligent and has demonstrated some very unique problem solving skills to keep one on their toes and he never forgets a trick. Stubborn at times yet sensitive, highly responsive and willing to please with calm, consistent and patient handling. Patience is a definite virtue plus a most gracious sense of humour with this comical fellow.
Birdie enjoys his home life with other dogs big and small and has shown excellent social skills with all of the dogs he has encountered - cats are but a mysterious, sought after creature and are not recommended. He could do well in a family situation with respectful children where he would receive an abundance of time and attention so very necessary to guide him to his full potential as the wonderful family companion we know he can be.
Birdie will require a very secure fenced yard where he can safely explore, sniff and run his daily laps to his heart's content - sorry there are no exceptions with this prone to wander-lust fellow. Regular d og park visits could definitely be a benefit towards burning off his boundless energy in a safe area.
Birdie is an absolute sweet heart just wanting to live, love & bark a great new life!
Birdie's adoption fee is $375. He is neutered, fully vaccinated, heart worm & tick diseases tested negative & preventatives given, dewormed and microchipped.
