A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Holy cuteness overload! This little peanut is beyond adorable with the most kissable and schmushiest face ever. As bouncy as he is in his kennel saying ‘take me out please’, is as quiet and gentle as he is once out. He has amazing leash manners as he smartly walks by my side, not forgetting to go potty as soon as we were on the street. He loves seeing other dogs we pass, turning his head at the slightest bark in the distance, ears perked up, and as a dog passes crouching down to watch it pass. In playgroup with females he’s a pro, greeting politely with soft body language. Dollop and I hung out in the park, his little body draped in my lap as we chatted about the cold wind, the Yankees vs the Mets, and when he agreed with my point of view I got a soft kiss. Swoon! Dollop showed me his sit, although rejected both of my treats in the polite and soft manner he has. As much as he’d rather be out with a person, when our time together was over he hopped back into his kennel like a pro, hoping his next walk would be soon, and that his forever person would find him fast. It’s no surprise he aced his behavior assessment, so should be a perfect addition to most homes. Come meet our little guy, and to use some poetic license from a very, very old commercial tag line, “a little dollop will do ya!’
