PEOPLE! Has only met one person he didn't like, and I trust his judgment. In a very close second (or maybe even first) is food, rides in the car, food, treats from the fridge, playing with buddies, did I mention food?
Motorcycles, loud cars, any dogs he doesn't know, especially those who try come close to my neighbor who gives him treats every time she sees him! Hmmmm...do we see a pattern here?
Any ball, anytime (whether it is his or not!)
ANYTHING! Especially if it comes out of the fridge -- He thinks it is people food, but it is really his dog food. ;)
He LOVES exploring new places (just like his Mom!)
"Tummy-time" (in lieu of saying, "Play dead!")
I had been looking for a small dog (think purse size?!) to rescue for about 1 1/2 years, but every time I tried for a dog, it was already taken. I really knew that God would give me the perfect dog for me....I just had to be patient. There were many "close calls" and dogs with whom I got attached, but nothing ever stuck.
I live in Orange County, CA and was looking on a San Diego, CA website and saw a dog that looked like she might be a match. I went to see her, but she just didn't look healthy. The wonderful workers there then said, "If you want a GREAT dog, let me show you one." Well, he was everything for which I WASN'T looking: male, medium size, and a terrier mix (I'd heard horror stories about how hyper they were.)
To my surprise...I heard myself saying, "OK, I'll take him!" And he has been my "angel dog" ever since. I couldn't have asked for a better dog -- which will spoil me, since he is my first.
I wish I knew....and I would LOVE to know which dogs "jumped over the fence." He looks like a small Golden retriever puppy (that is what most people guess) and a Corgi, but he has the "freckled body and mouth" of a terrier. His disposition is that of a Golden, but definitely has some terrier tendencies.
UPDATE! I had his DNA tested -- (yes, I was just TOO curious!) Turns out that they say he is, NO PRIMARY BREED, secondary is Cocker Spaniel, and "in the mix are: Dachshund, German Shepard?!, and English Coonhound! So, just as I thought, a lot of dogs jumped over the fence and he is a loveable, truly original, 100 percent, mutt!
Food, glorious, food!
