10/15/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Google Poindexter and it will say: “a boringly studious and socially inept person”……………..which is actually the polar opposite of our Poindexter. Puppy Poindexter is playful, sweet, fun, energetic, smart and chock full of personality. He’s the life of the party, able to amuse himself with a toy tossing it around with abandon. Show him a camera and he sits immediately for a photo, let him see your hand reaching for a treat and he sits immediately and waits, and although I haven’t quite figured out why he goes into a ‘down’, he does so perfectly. What an awesome, gorgeous little guy! His caramel color coat is beautifully groomed, his white feet need some growing into, he seems to be housetrained, and he’s just the cutest, sweetest pup ever. Our behavior assessors called him “social/playful” and I can’t agree more. He does some puppy jumping to play so needs a bit of training that when he’s a grownup it won’t be as cute as it is now. If you’re a puppy person, ready to take on the energy, enthusiasm, love and training to help Puppy Poindexter become the rock star adult he’s well on the way to being, stop by to meet him today. Note: Although the videos refer to Poindexter as “York”, the correct name is Poindexter. This was due to a name change.
