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, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This grand little fellow is not only very handsome in his special way, but extremely collegial. Long-backed with short, sturdy legs and a lovely big head, Pip most resembles a breed we have coined "Blab", which is a combination of beagle and Labrador Retriever, but he may have a spot of Corgi or Basset Hound in addition.
Whatever ingredients went into the making of Pip, he is an assemblage of wonderful traits. He is a brave, outgoing, extremely friendly guy with a disarming openness and charm. His eye contact is direct and honest - and unabashed in its hope to find love and praise.
Pip seems to be a dog who seeks acceptance, and while his affection for all people and other creatures is genuine and given freely, it is also offered in quest of reciprocation; Pip does seem to be conducting a search for someone to supplant a bond he must have known at one time in his life.
Pip has wonderful house manners - he is house trained, and fluent in "sit" and "come". He is neither chewy nor destructive. His eyes shine with joy to have a soft, warm bed, and he loves to be cuddled and held. He has no sensitive or touchy spots when handled. He has been very successfully treated for two medical issues, which are clear indicators of much time spent on his own - Lyme disease and Heartworm disease. We are very thankful that we could provide this care, and that he is healthy and very ready to start over.
In addition to Pip's excellent house manners, he rides very well, indeed, quite happily in a car. His lively interest in food makes him a healthy eater and easy keeper. Pip is excellent with other dogs and even with cats, but his primary need is for human relationship. He greets strangers cheerfully, both at the front door and on his walks, and is equally comfortable with adults and children. His adopter will need to be aware that Pip takes advantage of the opportunity to burst out an open door. Again, we see in this behavior his effort to find something or someone, as he always returns home, and has made many new friends as a result. Nonetheless, this is an unsafe practice, and one that we are hoping to correct.
Pip would seem to be a dog who is best defined by his true spirit of bonhomie. He has a tremendous storehouse of devotion, trust and love that he is bursting to offer. We are willing to bet that once he finds a committed adoptive home, that Pip will not continue to look further than his own back yard.
