WALDO fka Jay Fae A18939205 Update name, pic, bio
What’s up? Waldo here and I can’t seem to find my home, can you help? My name is Waldo (A18939205) and I am a Bull Terrier mix around 6-12 months old. I am just a pup who loves to play, play, play and play some more. I haven’t been to dog school, so I haven’t learned some of the things that good dogs know. I do know sit, but that’s about it. Since I’ve been at the shelter for a while, I am now a part of the Pen Pal Program, and I have 2 dedicated volunteers who spend time with me and teach me things like not to jump up to say hello. I do walk nicely on something called an Easy-Walk. My friend here at the shelter think I am adorable and smart, and that since I love treats I am easy to teach new tricks. My home is where I have a loving family who will help me continue my education on being a good dog, and I will love them forever. I hope I have some doggy siblings, cause right now at the shelter I have a roommate and I love other dogs. You should bring the whole family to meet me to make sure we are a good match. For more information about me contact my pen pals firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
