01/11/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I googled the name Tetris as I had no idea what it meant, and the only thing I came up with was an online puzzle game. I’m not sure if that was the intent, but I can tell you there is nothing puzzling about our Tetris. He’s a gorgeous puppy, his stunning milk chocolate coat clean and cared for, his green eyes full of mischief and intelligence. He seems to be housetrained, although may need a little refresher course when he gets to his new home — he’s still a baby, after all. Lively, fun and full of playful puppy energy, he knows ‘sit’ and shows it off every time my hand goes near my treats. Smart? I’d say so! His tail is always wagging, he loves to meet new people as well as other dogs, and is playful in group with his fellow canines. Tetris is well on his way to being a rockstar adult dog, and a few minor tweaks with positive reinforcement training will get him there in no time. He’s small, slender and stunning, his face has strong impressive lines, and while he’s a head turner puppy, he’s going to be even more so when all grown up. If you’re a puppy person, and not everyone is, willing to make the time and investment in him to make him the amazing grownup dog he’s destined to be, Tetris would love for you to stop by and meet him today.
