A volunteer writes: Yes, that name was given to him at intake — maybe because he could use a couple of whoppers to help him gain a little weight? Whoppie is an amazing dog — I fell head over heels at hello, and it was all uphill from there! He’s gorgeous, smart, friendly, good on leash, and seems to be housetrained. As soon as he went potty he looked up at me expectantly, waiting for his ‘good boy’ treat, and it was pretty clear that this is what he is used to, and he wasn’t going anywhere until a treat happened. Smart and adorable! Whoppie is a joy — low key, gentle, snuggly in a respectful, by invitation only, way, he sits when asked (and when he sees a treat), shakes both paws, loves to be scratched under his chin like a cat, and ignores other dogs we pass in the park. Likely a super model in a prior life, Whoppie poses for photos like a pro, giving me both a serious face and that fabulous smile pitties are known for, and then closes his eyes in sunshine bliss. As we walk, he checks up often, and when I tell him he’s a ‘good boy’ he looks up, smiles and wags his tail with joy. He’s an awesome companion, a delight to spend time with, and some lucky adopter gets to do it forever. Run, don’t walk, to meet Whopper Jr. today!!

Follow up around other dogs should be proceeded cautiously, using force-free, positive reinforcement based methods. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/2/17 During his initial medical exam, Whopper Jr was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Whopper Jr so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No dog parks/single pet home: See playgroup behavior
