A Male Labrador x Shepherd presently Adopted

Update - October:  Hey Chunky here …. YES, I’M STILL HERE!  What the heck is going on.  Is it my colour?  Is it my age?  Is it the few extra pounds?  You’re looking at a guy who has a wealth of knowledge on what it takes to be a great companion.  Do you think it’s easy watching the young whipper-snappers leave saying, “Best of luck Chunks, I’m outta here!”  Do you think it’s easy spending far too many boring hours in a crate?  The Volunteers do their best but there are lots of dogs here.  Do you think it’s easy not going for a few walks a day and enjoying the comfort of my own backyard?  I do admit that I pull like a train on leash which makes me difficult to handle at M&G’s – that’s the reason you don’t see me out there too often.  But you know as well as I that we can find a solution – Gentle Leader, Easy-Walk Harness, a couple of obedience training classes.  I am okay with other dogs that are not in my face – I like the ladies best!  Cats are just not my cup of tea.  I’d also be happy as your one and only.  So, will you at least think about it?  I’d don’t want to be writing again at Christmas.  Please consider adopting me; you won’t be disappointed.  



Are you looking for that special someone in your life? I may be able to help you. My name is Chunky and if you adopt me, you will learn that I am an expert on love, loyalty, and companionship. I have been graced with the striking appearance and the wonderful personality that comes with being a mix of many breeds. Animatch opened their doors to me when I needed them most; I was a stray and my family never came looking for me. I have a habit of looking at people with these big brown eyes that say, “Can I please have a treat?” You need to think very carefully. Rather than giving me a cookie, give me some of your undivided attention and affection. Take me for a walk in the neighbourhood; I would be so happy to spend time with you that I won’t miss the treats. Animatch needs to know that you are going to do everything possible to help me lose weight and most importantly maintain it. If I don’t lose weight, eventually those extra pounds will place stress on my bones, ligaments, and joints … not to mention the decreased stamina, heat intolerance, and difficulty breathing. So, I’m counting on you to help me by feeding me healthy food in the proper quantities and starting me on a daily exercise regimen. At 7.5 years old, I want to enjoy my senior years and be as healthy and mobile as possible. Together, I know that we can work at this. I prefer the company of calm dogs who respect my space but would be equally happy as your one and only. IIf all of this sounds good to you, then let’s get me adopted. I know that I’m ready. Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Chunky.
