ISO a puppy. ISO a calm puppy. ISO a laid-back-ish puppy. ISO a puppy who doesn’t chase cats.
ISO a calm, laid-back, yet confident puppy who tolerates cats, quirky middle-aged dogs who are neurotic about many things but still love to skitter, and kids. No, not kids. Babies. No, not babies. Toddlers.
Of the pit-bull-like-persuasion ideal, though not a deal-breaker.
Must be friendly. With dogs, cats, people, and kids. (Yes, kids are a separate entity from people.)
Doesn’t need to be house-trained, or trained at all for that matter. That other stuff, the personality stuff, is far more important.
I mean, we wouldn’t turn down a house-trained puppy, obvi.
OK, so, house-training ideal, though not required.
Must come from rescue.
Ideally in a foster home.
Not necessarily a foster pup, but needed exposure to cats, neurotic dogs, and
kids babies toddlers, so probably definitely a foster pup.
Must be willing to spend all day every day at home with me, go for lots of hikes, maybe train with John, snuggle on the couch, get spoiled rotten with healthy food and yummy treats, go to the vet for well visits and vaccination, run around our fenced-in yard with Cooper, maybe even swim in our (separately fenced-in) swimming pool, sneak bites of food from Violet under the breakfast table, and snuggle, snuggle, snuggle.
Might as well shoot for the moon: Sunday-brunch-patio trained, too.
