A volunteer writes: I passed Morgan in his kennel and he had that look….you know…that quiet look that says, ‘please don’t pass me by, I need to go out’…. OK, Morgan – here we go. Indeed Morgan peed a river as soon as we were out the door and we head to the park. Morgan pulls on the leash slightly but is easily manageable. After a short walk we’re in the backyard where Morgan really comes to life as he loved playing with a toy and a ball – sometimes at the same time! With a wagging tail he comes when called, joined me on the bench for some kisses, and greeted other staff passing by with a gently wagging tail. Morgan’s lush coat speaks to good care, his weight his perfect for his size, and the more time we spent together the more kisses I got!! Morgan was surrendered by the only person he’s ever known due to family changes and we’re told that his favorite snack is rice and beans, he rarely got walked outside, is scared of thunder and loud noises, and knows ‘sit’ and ‘give paw’. We’re also told that he’s wary of strangers and since we are all strangers to him, I have to admire how well he’s doing! After play time and cuddle time was over, Morgan sat to be leashed and we head inside. This handsome fellow is in need of a new person with whom to live happily ever after. We’re told he’s low energy so I’m guessing he’ll be happy to snuggle on the couch with his new person to watch Animal Planet with you! Ask to meet him today.
Another volunteer writes: Here’s a moment that sums our beloved Morgan up: He is kenneled between two very vocal dogs who would make anyone crazy, and yet he lies sweetly in his cage, looking up at the people walking by with his big brown eyes and wagging his tail as if to say, “What are you going to do?” We are all madly in love with Morgan. The field rescuer who brought him to the shelter came running over while we were with him to have a hugging reunion and champion his sweetness…as if we needed to be convinced. He appears painfully house trained, is a nice addition to playgroup with other dogs, and is a heavenly, mellow, angel of an addition to our lives. But as much as we love spending time with him, he is that much more eager for human contact–at the end of walks, he needs to be carried back into his kennel. Please, let Morgan charm his way into your life, won’t you? He deserves so much better than this particular shake of fate!
