You don’t see many dogs like me around. Remember Spuds McKenzie? Have you seen the Target dog with the red bulls-eye? That’s the breed that I am...a stout bull terrier with the egg-shaped head, pointy ears, and adorable pinkish snout.

Not only am I an eye-catcher, I’m also super-friendly with people and love to be cuddled. There’s nothing tepid or skittish about me. I’ll be the first one to greet people and I never say no to a brisk walk. At about 45 lbs and approximately 3-years-old, I’m a catch for adults who want a single dog that will dote on them. I never have accidents in my kennel even though I can’t go outside to go to the bathroom as often as I’d like, so I think you would be very happy at how quickly I would be potty-trained in a new home.

My preference is to be the only dog, but I visited with the cats briefly and it’s possible I could live with a calm and confident cat.

It’s a mystery why I’m still waiting for a home. My age, size and loving disposition should be all anyone needs to choose me.

Lucky for me that caring people stepped in to save my life. I had a home for most of my 7 years,. Then my owners got a divorce and neither of them wanted to keep me, so they took me to a shelter and asked that I be euthanized. The shelter took me, but they had no intention of “offing” a nice girl like me who they recognized right away as having many good years ahead of me. They also noted many of my other fine qualities including how sweet I am, the way I give away kisses to almost anyone, that I like to be petted by kids and I’m housebroken. What a package!

Even though a lot of people ask for younger dogs, they rarely recognize the indisputable fact that I can outrun and outwalk the vast majority. They don’t understand that a dog like me is easier to care for on a day-to-day basis because I do not have the same demanding needs of a young dog.

There has been interest in me and I’ve met a lot of potential adopters. Everyone loves me, but nobody has taken the final step to adopt me. At only about 40 pounds, I’ve even been picked up in the air with ease by some of the volunteers to see how I’d react. I just let them do it...after all, it is done with love. I visited with the cats to see how and they don’t bother me at all. I also went to a Petco offsite with Michael – a playmate who has been adopted (lucky dog!), and they only take the cream of the crop to Petco! So I’m asking...why not stop in to meet me? You will see that everything I mention here is true.

I was having lots of fun running on the acreage of my former home. But my owners didn’t like me roaming far and wide, so they chained me to a dog house outside and it wasn’t fun at all. Lucky for me that some kind people took notice and convinced my owners to give me up so some new family could take me home and let me be a real pet instead of a farm animal.

I’ve come a long way since this giant change of scenery. I was so nervous about being kenneled and surrounded by other dogs, but I’ve gotten used to it and I barely take notice of them when it’s my turn to go out for a walk.

You should see how fast I’ll sit for treats and it only takes the gentlest touch to get me to melt into your lap and tempt you to give me a belly rub. I adore people and getting attention. I’ve been starved for it so I’m putty in almost anyone’s hands. Several calm kids have visited with me. The younger noisy ones scare me a little, so I prefer the older ones.
Visiting with the cats did not get me agitated or aggressive. I’m more curious about them than anything else. As far as other dogs go, I have a definite preference for the girls.

I know that it’s hard to believe, because I lived outdoors, but the volunteers believe I’m housebroken. I might have an initial “accident” in new surroundings, but I’m sure to learn to “take it outside” in no time. I just need someone to give me a chance.

I am a handsome, 6-year-old Lab mix with a sparkling personality and ready smile. A new home would certainly make me smile.

I shouldn’t be counted out for being a little older. Actually my age should work a bit more in my favor since I’m fit and active but can still chill during downtime with ease. Currently around 6 years old, I have plenty enough energy for the average person, but not so much that I would drive you nuts. I love walks in any weather, but am also very happy to just “hang” with people.

My life before was a mystery. As a coonhound mix there was probably some expectation of me hunting, but that is not what I’m all about. Sure I’ll put my nose to ground and check out the world through my nostrils like any self-respecting hound would, so it might surprise you to learn that I am a breeze to walk on leash.

Though I don’t have much training ... yet, I respond to treats which will make training easy. I’m so sweet and good-natured, I would easily integrate into any family with the youngest of kids to the oldest of seniors. I love to be handled, petted, brushed and engaged. When I hear the words, “Good girl,” when walking, my ears perk up and I turn my head. I like a lot of other dogs, but would need to be properly introduced to a cat to see if that would work.

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
