I am a Retriever/Spitz/Basenji mix and I am almost 2 years old and I weigh 30 pounds. I have had all of my shots and have been spayed so I can go to my new home with YOU! Those funny-looking 2-legged creatures said I’m also microchipped – whatever THAT is. At any rate, I will be fully vetted. Is that anything close to petted? I love to be petted!
Wanna hear some more good stuff about me? OK, here goes. I am sweet and easy- going in the house. I am very gentle and love everyone. I am sometimes a little shy but I warm up quickly. Once I'm warmed up, I show my oh-so-nice personality. I love to play with toys. I LOVE toys!
I get a little nervous if things get too wild, like if you get too physical with me. That's why I'd probably do best in a home with no children or with children old enough to understand what makes me nervous and shy. I like more calm activities, like going on a leisurely walk with you.
I am house-trained and crate-trained but I don't like to sleep in a crate. I like a big, soft pillow.........or a human! I like my male doggie friend, Barney. So, if you have a doggie that is nice and gentle, I would love to go live with you. Or, if you don't have any doggies at all, that is quite alright with me too!
My foster mom loves me SO much that she only wants me to fly to my new home even if a pet transport truck was available. See my adoption information below.
If you would like to take me home (and you know you do), please email firstname.lastname@example.org and she can get me on my way to a new and loving home! My adoption fee is $650 USD and includes my vetting, spaying, microchip, health certificate, travel crate AND transportation on United Airlines from Houston, TX to areas in the Northeast U. S., North Central U. S., Northwest U. S., and Canada and will be arranged by the rescue group. (This is a courtesy posting.)
