I wrote a new bio for Troy today because I hadn't had him very long when I wrote the first one, so figured it needed an update now that I know him better. Can't believe he is still available!
Hi, I'm Troy! I'm an approx. 16wk. old (as of 10/21/10) pup who was seized from my owners when I was 6wks. old because they decided to leave me in a hot car while they went out to dinner, not cool (literally!). A nice lady at the shelter decided that I needed to get out of there to be safe, and wanted me to become a Ring Dog, so here I am!
I'm a really pretty color, some would say blue and white, but my foster mom says it's almost like a silvered black in some lighting. I'm neutered, microchipped, and UTD on all shots so I'm ready to go to my forever home now!
I've been living with my foster mom for a month now, and while I love it here, I would love to have a "real" home before the Holidays! I live with two other dogs, and two cats, and get along great with everyone! I play very nice, and don't mind sharing my toys, bed, or anything really. I really like kids too, and am very gentle with them. I'm not a mouthy pup at all, which I've heard is a plus!
I've really come out of my shell since I've been here and now LOVE meeting new people. My foster mom tells me that I'm one of the wiggliest puppies she's ever met, and that I don't walk, I just wiggle! I recently went to an adoption event at a Harley Davidson store and my foster mom was amazed that the LOUD Harley's didn't phase me one bit. I made a lot of friends there and got a ton of compliments on how well behaved I was.
I have yet to have an accident in the house, which apparently is really good. I love my crate, and jump in it every time I'm asked (my foster mom gives me a bone every time, so that helps
). I sleep through the whole night and never make a peep. I'm a mellow, go with the flow kind of guy too. I like to play, but if my friends don't want to, I'll just curl up with them and go to sleep. I have no issues with people or dogs near my food or toys, and sit patiently while my food is being made. I don't chew on anything I'm not supposed to, and am just an all around "perfect puppy"!
I'm working on something called "training" right now, and so far I'm learning how to sit, lay down, leave it, come, and touch. My foster mom says I have a great work ethic, and am very willing to please for such a young dog.
If you're looking for a great little puppy, fill out an application for me today!
