A volunteer writes: Bishop is the dog about whom books are written. Impossibly gorgeous, sweet and friendly, and a two toned nose that just begs to be kissed! The title of the book is Bishop and His Nose! (Love his nose!)Surrendered due to lack of time and money, Bishop is super friendly, loves a good butt scratch, showed off his housetraining skills and never stopped wagging his tail! While he’s a bit too thin and is being fed an extra meal daily, his coat is as soft as the finest silk, shows off his ‘sit’ for a treat which he takes with gusto, poses for photos like a pro, and does that head tilt thing that makes me swoon. We’re told he sniffs new people and then sits waiting for a treat (awww), has spent time with a toddler but just due to his size may be a bit much, doesn’t guard his things, likes to play with toys, is housetrained when walked regularly and will also use wee wee pads inside, doesn’t do well in a crate, and loves to run around. Our walk to the park consisted of Bishop wagging his tail at every person we passed, as well as larger dogs and ignoring small dogs. Bishop reminds me of a gangly teen, ready to explore and take on the world with love and good will. He hated going back into his kennel and as I put him back I promised him that a new person or family with whom he would live with love, plentiful food and playtime would find him soon. Help make my promise to this great dog come true.
Bishop is a one year old APBT that was given to his previous owner from a friend. He had him for a little over a year. Unfortunately, due to not being able to take care of Bishop financially and limited time, he could no longer keep him. He is said to not have any injuries or health problems to his knowledge. He has never been seen by a veterinarian under his care.
Around strangers, he is said to be friendly and sniffs them before he sits there until he gets a treat. He has spent time with a three year old and had positive interactions but has jumped on him playing rough. He has not lived or spent time with any cats or dogs. He has never bitten anyone or any other animal.
Bishop still pees and poops on wee-wee pads inside of the home. He is said to not have any behavioral issues. During storms/fireworks, he isn’t bothered by the noise. He doesn’t mind having his food touched or his toys taken away. He has never been given a bath, had his nails trimmed or his coat brushed. He likes to be held but will push away on his own. If someone unfamiliar approaches the house, he sometimes will bark while other times he just sniffs at the door.
For a New Family to Know
Bishop is said to be friendly, confident and excitable. His activity level is described to be high. His favorite thing to do is randomly run around the apartment. At home, he tends to follow his owner around. He likes to play with balls, stuffed animals, squeaky toys and bones. He likes to play fetch, tug, chase and enjoys to wrestle. He was kept mostly indoors and would sleep on the floor. Bishop is used to eating dry food twice a day. He is mostly housetrained and has accidents if he isn’t taken outside. He will go potty on the grass and dirt outside. When left alone in the house, he tends to whine and cry a lot. He has been crater trained but doesn’t do well. He knows how to sit on command. For exercise, he likes brisk walks on leash. On the leash, he sometimes pulls hard.
Behavior during Intake
Bishop allowed all handling and allowed counselor to photograph, collar and scan for a microchip (-).
