A Male Mixed Breed presently Available For Adoption

My name is Tristan and I’m looking for a new place to hang my hat ... or my leash!  I am approximately four years old and would you believe I was brought to Animal Control – an unclaimed stray!  How does that happen?  Me, a friendly fellow who has never met a stranger is unceremoniously dumped!  Oh well, better days ahead.  I love people and I’m always ready to play; the Volunteers believe that I may have potential as an agility dog.  You ought to see me run!  Don’t let my size fool you, I am a rugged little guy and I can keep up on long walks, hikes, and retrieving that Frisbee (some day I will learn to bring it back).  For me, playtime is all the time.  I get along well with all the other dogs especially the dogs who enjoy running around outside.   I would do better in a home with a fenced yard so I can roam free and explore my space; I will rid your yard of squirrels.  Keep in mind, playing is not a substitute for the all-important daily walks.  When you take me for a stroll around the neighbourhood and let me sniff everything, I’m really gathering information on what has changed since the last time we walked the same route.  Dogs need to use all their senses.  I’m all set to start basic obedience training and please don’t think that taking classes once a week or getting a trainer to come in to our home is the quick fix.  Training is an every-day-for-life thing.  We need to go out every day and practice; make it fun.  You can even teach me some tricks.  Since I am quick to sound the alarm, no apartments or condos for me.  Well, do I sound like a catch?  I bet you you’re smitten already.  Well, you know the drill.  Fill in the Adoption Form and let’s see what happens.

P.S.  I was recently groomed, if you think I am cute in this photo shoot … you should see me now.  Please don’t ask Animatch whether I am hypo-allergenic, they really don’t know as I keep my heritage or mix of breeds to myself.

Please share photos of Tristan with your friends

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.
