I had someone that loved me once – way back I can remember a gentle hand and a warm place to lay my head. I loved to be near my human and remember following them around the house and lying by their feet as they watched television or worked at the computer.
One day it all changed and I was separated from the life I loved. I had to fend for myself. I tried. I tried hard, for a very long time. I had many scary experiences but I kept trying to find my way back to my safe place. It seemed like forever and I became weak and exhausted. I had no strength to look for food or water and was about to give up when someone found me alone in a ditch and took me to get help. I was taken care of by many kind people and they got me strong enough that ASR could accept me. Unfortunately, I also had a case of heart-worms.
Thanks to ASR, I have been treated and now I take a monthly preventative. I sleep on a comfortable bed, get lots of food, and many belly rubs, and butt scratches. My foster mom really knows how to scratch!
I know my current situation is temporary. When I find my forever home, she can rescue another dog that may have had a worse lot than I did. I wish all lost animals could be given a second chance for life and know the peace, safety, and love I have been given.
Here’s what I am looking for in my forever home…
I really like the girls – they’ve got the fingernails and they give really great scratches. You humans like massages I hear. I love to get me some “scratchies”. I’m just saying, a full belly and good affection, what more could a guy want?
I also like long walks but with conditioning, could keep pace with a light jogger. I’ve finally put some weight on after all of those months of starving and searching for food – I don’t want to burn it all off exercising.
Speaking of food, it took a while for me to really get my weight back and my foster mom feels that I hold my weight better if she puts a little bit of enzymes on my food once a day. I am also a little insecure about others being near my dish after having to fight for what food I found for so long. It would be better if I didn’t have to worry about anything trying to take my food. It brings up so many difficult memories for me.
When introduced to other dogs I can be sociable. I would consider myself to be a reserve gentleman and I would prefer not to be crowded when out at social events. With respect to cats, I’d just as soon let someone else live with them – not that there’s anything wrong with cats. Even though I am not like some other guys when it comes to those of the feline persuasion, I’d rather them not come between me and my human. I admit it, I can be jealous and I’d rather not share. Not only was I starving for food, I was starving for the love and affection I once knew.
By the way, older children in small doses work better for me. Too much excitement I think it is. You know kids, they go a mile a minute – all that noise and stuff. It’s like my foster mom says...she likes kids when she can give them back to their parents. Nice to play with but wouldn’t want to own one. LOL.
Things I like:
I prefer a fenced yard and like the ability to go outside to do my business several times a day. If you need to go to work, maybe you could find a friend to come open the door for me once or twice during the day while you are away. I also enjoy sitting out on the porch in the sunshine. My foster mom works at home and has a special door for me to come and go as I please – I like that. When I get tired of sitting outside, I usually come in and find a spot near her chair to take a nap. I also like chewing on my bone or my tennis ball.
Things I don’t like:
Thunderstorms. All you have to do is just remind me about my kennel, close the door, and I will feel safe and begin to relax during a storm. Alternatively, you could sit on the sofa and scratch my head until I lie down next to you. I also don’t like the grass to be too tall – it tickles me when I try to do my business. If it comes to being tickled or not going, I won’t go. However, if you walk me I will rub up against the bushes and do my business along the way. Quirky I know, but that’s who I am.
I am hoping you will take some time and patiently reintroduce me to all that life has to offer. I’m game if you are. If you are looking for a guy with the right amount of “get up and go” for a laid back kind of lifestyle, then I’m your man. I’m just as comfortable watching Sunday afternoon football as I am watching Sex and the City reruns. As long as I get to be with you, I will be a happy camper.
Waiting for Your response,
Wiley has completed his heart-worm treatments and his activity limitations have been lifted. :) He is ready to go home. Wiley is a sweet boy, he is friendly and smart and he has a beautiful coat. He loves the great outdoors and travels well in the car. He's a great on-leash hiking buddy. If you are interested in giving Wiley the security and love he is seeking, please contact us and we will arrange a meeting with Wiley! You will not be disappointed - he is a great dog! It is indicated that he needs a special diet as he does better when given digestive enzymes at least once a day. Otherwise, commercial dog or raw food is acceptable.
