found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Christmas is ready for adoption, he had a touch of Demodex (the non-contagious, auto-immune related type of mange), but that is cleared up and he is working hard at re-growing the fur on the bald spots and learning good manners for house-doggies – such as:
- Shoes are NOT a chew-toy
- "But another dog did it first” is NOT an acceptable reason for unrolling the toilet paper throughout the house and will not excuse you from getting in trouble for it.
- Peeing and/or pooping in the house upsets the humans (he’s getting this one pretty quickly)
-Climbing the printer-stand ALSO upsets the humans
- The faster you go into your crate at meal time the faster the meal comes (but you have to go in your OWN crate)
- The old dogs get grumpy if you run them over too often when wrestling and playing tag with the other young dogs.
Christmas is VERY food-motivated and will “counter-surf” or otherwise try to get to it if he thinks that there is anything yummy on the counter (or table, or windowsill, or under the DVD player….he’s not picky!)
He is very energetic and enthusiastic, so he may overwhelm or knock over a small child, but would not intentionally hurt anybody. He loves everybody and tries very hard to understand what you want from him. Although his greetings to the resident cats are enthusiastic they are not threatening. He respects the signal if they hiss and move away.
He loves to play with his NylaBones, antlers and any other thing he can turn into a toy. He seems to enjoy a good game of tug, but drops it immediately if a stern voice is used.
He sleeps in his crate at night with little objection, as long as he is tired, but can be quite vocal if crated when his humans are home. He may voice his displeasure when initially crated, but settles quickly upon everybody leaving.
He LOOOVES to play and wrestle with the other dogs in the house, but has shown respect for the elderly beagles who share their home with him with they tell him “No.”
If you are looking for a higher-energy guy who can enjoy some quiet time (as long as he has something to chew on) Christmas might be just the friend you (or your current dog) is looking for!
