Arrival Story:
He was from a sporting dog rescue group. He was an ex-show dog that was no longer wanted and needed to be placed in a good home. My only regret is that I missed his "growing up" years. We are a great match!

Bio:
Travis just earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate and is in training to be a future therapy dog. Because of his past show career, his greatest challenge has been learning it's OK to "SIT." Obedience training has been best done at home since he gets stressed in any show type area/situation. I love him just the way he is!

Hey, check this out. Mom took me for a walk about town recently and discovered this really cool sculpture on a corner. Apparently someone thought I was so good looking, they felt inspired to create a masterpiece in my honor. The resemblence is quite amazing, don't you think? Mom had to take some pictures to show all my friends. I also made sure to mark it with my scent before we continued our walk so all other dogs walking by would know how much I approved of the whole thing........

 

My Halloween Adventure

I REALLY got myself in the doghouse by playing a trick on my Mom on Halloween. She took me into town with her that day and left me in a fenced back yard where I was SUPPOSED to wait for her. I decided I would rather check out the neighborhood so I wiggled out thru a loose board and found out HOW BIG sub-divisions and CITIES really are! It was fun for awhile, but after dark a bunch of monsters began roaming around and I couldn't remember how to get back home. There were lights and cars and people everywhere and I was so confused, I ran and ran, and finally realized I would have to enlist the help of a STRANGE human. I know I am a pretty big dog and some humans wouldn't know what a sweetie and gentleman I really am, so I put on my best lost dog act, and asked a cute little girl if she would help me get back to my Mom. I also didn't want to spend the night out alone in the cold with so many spooky things going on. I just wish I could have let Mom know I was safe in a dog lovers home while she was imagining the worst that might have happened to me. Next day they somehow figured out a way to call my Mom and she came and got me. I must have really gotten turned around because she said I was 4 miles away from the right yard. We were both so happy we had found each other again, although I think I have been grounded for life! I wish I could thank all the humans in the world who love dogs enough to help out a strange dog who just made a really BIG mistake. Woof! Woof! Thanks for helping me get back home!
