Pirate

ABOUT ME

This Pirate will steal your heart!

Everyone who meets him comments on his doggy charisma….he seriously has it in spades.  To meet him is to fall head over heals in love.

At a compact size of 50 pounds he is one chocolate bundle of love. Want a lap dog or couch buddy?  This is your guy! Want a dog that will literally gaze adoringly into your eyes? This is your guy! Want a mild and easy going companion to just hang out, follow you around like you are the center of his world?  This is your guy!

Sweet Pirate is a handsome 2 year old who arrived in our rescue with a deformed front leg.  He has been fully vet checked and is in tip top shape, he simply gets along fine on his other 3 legs.  It doesn’t slow him down a bit.

He is living in a wonderful foster home with multiple dogs, big and small.  He also lives with cats and young kids!  In fact, he particularly loves the kids and it would be great if he was placed with kind children to love and adore him.

Pirate seems to capture the hearts of everyone who meets him.  Even all of the vet staff were gushing over him at his last visit saying he was the best dog they have ever met.  And while they could have been exaggerating just a little bit, we are sure that he would be at the top of the list!

He is housebroken and crate trained, but does not require one.  He is great when left home alone uncrated.  He loves car rides knowing that every one is a new adventure!  He enjoys the company of the other dogs in his foster home and he just loves to play in the snow.

One of Pirate’s endearing and comical traits is his tendency to collect the family’s shoes and bring them to his area when left alone.  He doesn’t do any damage, in fact it is common behavior with some dogs as it has the scent of his people…and he loves his people.  We find it so funny!

Another thing we absolutely love is that when you go to pet him he rolls right over for you to pet his belly.  There is nothing better than a belly rub!  We seriously think that he is one of the happiest dogs we have ever met…and believe me, we have met a lot!

Don’t miss out on this handsome guy. He would love nothing more than spending the rest of the winter hanging with you on the couch binging netflix.
