You just looked at my photo and fell in love, didn’t you? I could read your thoughts and you were saying to yourself, “He is the most adorable dog and I need him in my life.” Am I right? Well, it is true but before you hit that button to e-mail and ask to adopt me, let’s be open and honest about my background and then you’ll be so positive that I’m one of the best that you won’t be able to talk with my foster mom quickly enough.

I started out in a wonderful home with everything I needed but there was a special needs child in that home which had difficulties controlling impulses. Those people loved me enough to know that it wasn’t safe for me to be in that home so they rehomed me before I got hurt. I’ll always be grateful that they put my safety first and found me what they considered was a wonderful new home and it was just that for about three months. Through no fault of my own, I started urinating wherever I could - NOW PLEASE DON’T STOP READING - there was a reason and perhaps a lesson to be learned here. I had bladder stones which causes any dog to do what I was doing. And if you’ve ever known a human with bladder stones you know the pain that is caused by those “rocks.” My second family couldn’t get the surgery I needed so I was surrendered to Furbaby Rescue. I then immediately got medical help and now I’m fine, just fine. I go outside and do everything out there that should be done outdoors. Cool, huh? I am a bit bewildered with all the new homes and moving around but I always manage to find someone who will cuddle with me. That’s on my priority list - lots of cuddling but I always wait for an invitation to jump into someone’s lap. See I have manners, too. I’m definitely ready for my new forever home.

My requests are few. One, after what I’ve been through, be understanding that your pets, any pet, could develop medical needs and be willing to see it through. Don’t toss us aside. Talk to my foster mom about a proper diet that could help prevent any future issues. Have lots of toys for me. Those toys keep me busy and occupied and h-a-p-p-y. The only thing that would make me happier is having my one and only last home, never to be moved again unless it’s with my family.

One last thing - has anyone ever explained that six years old for a dog is the perfect age? No puppy habits or behavior to deal with. It’s adult behavior but not the senior adult behavior. It’s just the perfect age and will be for many, many years to come.

Now you may click this button………..and inquire further about me or just say “Cash told me he’s the perfect dog for me.”

Awesome home for this wonderful boy, residing in Bellingham, WA
