Pinto

A Male Terrier-x presently Adopted

Update:  Pinto here .... again.  My adoption did not work out; I am just a little too protective of my space, my toys, my crate, my human ... get the picture?  That did not work well with another dog in the home.  So, in my next home, It would be best if I was your one and only.  An experienced guardian willing to do obedience training would be right up my alley.  We terriers are bright and always looking for a challenge.  So, if you are an experienced person looking for a challenge, then I'm here and ready to go.

 

Pinto here and I am looking for a family with some time on their hands.  My humans had to surrender me because they were moving and I couldn’t join them.  I am a five-year-old, Terrier mix with a very distinguished look.  I know I know, I’m competing with all these puppies who are a barrel of laughs. When I first arrived, I was so disturbed that I was rather grumpy and didn’t trust these humans that were just trying to be ice.  Sometimes it’s harder on adult dogs who have known a home and now find themselves without all that is familiar to them.  Just because an adult dog is no longer young doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a world of things to offer.  Some people still have that mistaken notion that if you don’t raise a dog from scratch, you’ll only have trouble.  Baloney!  Nothing could be further from the truth.  There are definite advantages to an adult dog.  Keeping up with a pup can be exhausting – and you can’t turn them off or send them to their room to play.  Adopting an adult dog is a “what you see is what you get” proposition.  One last thought about the “second hand” dog.  A dog of any age can be trained and will adapt to – and be a loving companion for – a new family.  So, take a second look at me, we just might be meant for each other.  Fill in the Adoption Form if you feel that I am the dog for you.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
