A volunteer writes: Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle – classic case of the tail wagging the dog! With a happy smile, sparkling eyes and that wiggle, Pharaoh welcomes me to his kennel happy to see my leash. Out we go, Pharaoh using the ‘facilities’ as soon as we’re out the door and then showing off lovely leash manners as we head to the park. Posing for pictures like a pro, he doesn’t mind being tethered wagging his little stumpy tail at me. Pharaoh ignores other dogs we pass, even a small one rudely barking and pulling towards us. Good boy Pharaoh! Part of his family since a puppy, Pharaoh was surrendered due to “no time”. We’re told he’s friendly and responsive, friendly and tolerant of children, crate trained, is scared of and will hide from fireworks and loud noises, doesn’t guard his things, loves to play with balls, slept on his owner’s bed, loves to snack on vegetables, apples and pears!
Love that! Pharaoh showed off his sit, took his treats gently, and then decided he was going to be a lap dog. Funny boy – all 65 pounds of him, as hard as he tried just didn’t happen. Instead, he settled for draping himself over my legs, giving me kisses, and closing his eyes in affectionate bliss. I adore this boy, his lively energy, affectionate and sweet personality and great smile. You will too – come meet him and see for yourself.!
