I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
The dog’s agenda is simple, fathomable, overt: I want.
“I want to go out, come in, eat something, lie here, play with that, kiss you. There are no ulterior motives with a dog, no mind games, no second-guessing, no complicated negotiations or bargains, and no guilt trips or grudges if a request is denied.” - Caroline Knapp.
Well, uhhhh…. this is awkward…hi. I’m Malcolm, my friends call me “Moo”. I’ve found myself needing to find a forever home. I’m a good guy – my foster mom said the quote above might as well have been written about me. I’m pretty simple to figure out – and I’d make a pretty awesome roommate.
I really like having a routine and I adapt quickly. It only took me a few days to figure out what the routine is here at my foster home – and now I do as I'm asked, with no fussing (and most of the time, I do what I’m supposed to before my foster mom asks me to). I’ll try to make things easy for you too when it comes to learning my routine. After I go outside to do my business- I let you know I’m finished by barking to come back in. Hygiene is really important to me. I let my foster mom clean my wrinkles and check my ears daily. I’m very trust worthy, I haven’t had any accidents in the house and I don’t pick up things that don’t belong to me. I’m told I’m predictable in a good way.
I’m a proud member of the clean bowl club. In order to get the last bit of kibble, I like to knock over the bowl with my paws and eat off the floor. I always make sure to get every little kibble off of the floor though…so I’m not messy or anything. Oh, and I really like walks- I won’t pull you and I’ll walk at your pace. Like a good bully, I’ll walk beside you.
I love playing with other dogs- bully tag is my favorite! I have two foster sisters who are helping me learn how to be a gentleman and take a hint- I’m not too far off, just a little unsure of myself. I’m not really the alpha type, so I take direction well.
And hey, what’s this stuff about sitting? I come when I’m called, I go to my crate when asked, and I understand "quiet" and "leave it", and my foster mom taught me "kitchen" when she wants me to stop what I'm doing and head to my favorite bed in the kitchen – but I’m still learning about sitting. Not sure what all of the fuss is about, but I am learning that whoever sits gets rewarded. That - I understand!
I can't wait to find my forever home! I could live just about anywhere- a house or an apartment, doesn’t matter. I can easily adapt to live in the city or in the suburbs or even somewhere more remote.
Don’t laugh – I’m a formerly bullied bully. I think that probably negatively affected my social skills, but I am working on it! I wouldn’t mind being in a house with other dogs though! My foster mom says I’m learning social skills quickly by imitating my foster sisters. I’m a little awkward still, so if I get a furry housemate – they’ll have to be patient with me.
I love everyone, but uhhhh…. I am a little biased toward guys and would prefer to have one around the house. And well….ladies, if there’s a guy in the room when you’re talking to me…I am more inclined to look to him for direction before I give in and listen to you. I’ll do what you ask, I just hesitate a little first – ya know?
My foster mom wants you to know that I’ve had all my shots and I’m neutered and the vet says I'm a healthy guy. Except well, I need to continue eating a grain free diet.
My adoption fee is $550 and I am up to date on all of my shots and medical care. Are you my new Mom or Dad? If so, please apply to adopt at http://www.adoptabull.org/adopt.html
