UpDown!

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

UpDown!

This little fellow is my favorite dog at BARCS. He's about 14 months old, bouncy and affectionate and really stunningly handsome - a true black with embers for eyes. If only I could figure out why they named him UpDown!

Oh, right - Those EARS!

At this point, UpDown has not been tested with cats or other dogs. I've had him near other dogs casually and on walks, and there is a lot of excitement and interest, but no aggression - however, he's still young, so care would need to be taken there. Like most dogs who don't get enough exercise, he's pretty high energy, but I believe with some work he'll be quite a lovely lap dog - he's extremely gentle and affectionate, loves to snuggle and is very aware of his own teeth! Just watch how gently he takes yummy treats:


He's learning to sit in moments of excitement (since his default behavior last week was to hump :oops: ) and is doing VERY well with this - it's still not on cue, but in just three or four short sessions he's already making the choice to behave and keep all four feet on the floor rather than attempting to love you long time. He likes clicker training, which he just started, and is really going to be an amazing dog when he finds his forever home - could that be you?

A couple more pictures - I took these today at lunch. He could make a nice little sports dog for someone, but could also just be a family lap dog! He's under 35lb right now, and not likely to top it since he's nearly full grown. He and I played with this ball we found and he was interested in it, chased it well, but was able to give it up gently too. He was happy playing rough and tumble, and then equally happy to snuggle in my lap!

Of course, I let him take the ball inside his run, and when I came back just a few minutes later it was popped and in pieces! lol

Jeepin' did not, but someone did! UpDown went to his (hopefully) forever home last night! Everyone wish him luck - he's a great little dog!
