found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Somewhere in my young life, and probably while I was surviving on the street, someone was not kind to me. When I was able to actually sleep they probably poked or prodded me. It was never done in kindness, that I will tell you! Now Mom and my BFK Aunties have been doing their best to let me know that those days are behind me – but I occasionally have ‘flash backs’ to a time when I had to be on guard to protect myself. I’ve come 99% of the way to knowing that but that’s where being a savvy owner comes in.
You see I have a bit of a quirk. When I’m sleeping soundly you have to announce that you are approaching so I don’t get startled. It’s really pretty easy. In Mom’s case, she claps her hands and says “Hello Dancer, here I am!” I then wake up, give her tons of kisses and we go off to do a walk, or a ride in the car, or have something to eat. (You get the picture, right?) Mom says I’m like a PTSD kid who needs to be reminded I’m in the ‘here and now’ not out on the street fighting to stay alive.
I’ve learned commands and am well mannered. I know I have to sit before I receive a treat or starting our walk. At night I sleep soundly in Mom’s room but not on the Big People’s Bed. (I get to rest there during the day if I’d like to though). I get along with my doggy foster brothers and would probably be equally happy being the center of someone’s world.
So if I sound like the kind of pup you’d like to meet, and if you are ready to be entertained and loved, please DO ask for me. And I’ll look at you with my big brown eyes and dance into your heart!
Tail wags and pirouettes,
Dapper and Darling Dancer
