Hi! Wallie here.
I am a 9 year old who found myself taken to a shelter because my owner was going to college and decided she didn’t need me anymore. Thank goodness the wonderful people at NBRAN found out about me and picked me up!
I am very healthy, in fact I’m a little bit over weight. I’m UTD on my vaccines, HW negative and super friendly. I am good with other dogs and cats are an unknown. When I was at the vet for my check up they found out I have a very mild form of something called Laryngeal Paralysis. My foster mom says it is barely noticeable now that I am happy at her house. Because of this it has been recommended that I be adopted in a Northern cooler climate to keep me healthy.
I am such an amazing boy and will make a great companion, don’t let my age fool you. I love to play and hunt the laser pointer as long as you will play with me. Did you say squeaky ball? I have one and it is my favorite toy! Car rides?? Oh Yes Please!!! Did I mention I am house trained, walk well on a leash, sit for treats, and don’t jump on the furniture. I am a submissive boy and when bedtime comes I am happy to sleep in my bed on the floor next to you in your bed. Do I have any negative issues? Yes, just one sadly. I have some mild toy aggression, but my foster mom is working on it. Please don’t let that be a deal breaker though. One last thing, the children in the neighbor just love me, so I guess that means I am good with children also.
I am definitely a scent hound which means my nose rules! I will follow it anywhere even if it gets me in to trouble. Last July I followed my nose right into the path of an oncoming car. That was a very painful experience! It caused something called a ‘fractured pelvis.’ It has healed up nicely and I do really well with walking, running and jumping but I will need to be on joint supplements for life to help me stay active.
My foster mom says I have an awesome personality. I love people and like it best when I can always be with my humans. I really like other dogs! I don’t live with cats, but I find the one at my vet’s office fascinating! I am crate trained, but still working on my housebreaking. My foster mom says I am very smart! I love my foster mom and foster siblings, but I really need a forever home hopefully with another doggie sibling or siblings to play with and a human family I can love forever and ever!
