1 year old • Male • 65 lbs
I have soft blue-gray, smooth fur, with assorted white spots including a white chest and belly, and white on my toes. Sometimes one ear stays up and the other down.
Hi! I’m Silly. AKA Sil, Big Baby, Ballerina Toes, and Baby Seal.
*My ideal home: A fenced yard is a must because I get the zoomies a lot and need to run around periodically. I would likely do best as an only dog, but could also have a dog buddy, as long as he or she is well trained. Although I love tiny humans, my size and puppy clumsiness rule out homes with young kids.
*Astrological sign: Taurus
*Favorite game: Tug of war
*Favorite sleeping spot: Anywhere! I’m a hardcore snuggler and I challenge you to find a place that I can’t get comfy.
*Favorite treat: Anything! I’m not picky at all!
*Favorite interactions: Meeting any canine or human. Other living beings are my #1 delight!
*My foster family: I live with 2 dogs and 3 humans. Check out my photo video with my foster pup friends!!
*House-training: OK, I’m not 100% housebroken yet. I still have a lot of puppy in me.
*Accomplishments: I’m learning a lot about social graces from my elders. I know how to: Sit, Come, and go to my crate for treats (sometimes I hang out there on my own). I’m working on Down and Stay. I’m currently enrolled in these courses: Lie down, Stay, Off, and Leash Manners. I’m a pretty good loose leash walker (my foster family will show you how we do it).
*My name: My fam named me Silly because I am, and they thought that my adopters would easily be able to transition me to a new name--remembering that calling Hey, Silly dog to me would always be meaningful.
*Loves: A bone to chew on, a Kong, a toy to chase, playdates, and a human to sit next to (or on).
My foster family loves me SO MUCH, and they want me to find a loving forever home (but I know they will cry oceans of tears when I do).
I am up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
My foster mom is a petsitter who found me wandering the streets after an evening visit. We slumberpartied for a bit, I did a stray hold at a local shelter . . . and the rest is history.
