Hi there! How is everyone doing so far in this new month of September? Hard to believe how quickly time goes — April, May, June, July and August seemed to go WHOOSH!
OK let’s get down to the basics and let me tell you about me! I am a four-year-old mastiff/pitbull mix canine. I am very large in size, but please don’t let my size fool you, because I am also a big, sweet baby. I am extremely smart and I know a lot of basic commands such as “sit” “down” and “stay.” I absolutely LOVE kong toys that are filled with yummy treats. And I must be part cat (shhhh don’t tell my canine friends at the shelter) because I also love to play with laser pointers. Do you believe that!?
I do get a little nervous around strangers, specifically males, so needless to say I am much more of a ladies’ man. I just adore the ladies!
Winston, I would do best in a home without any males (either human or animal). Well, if a home does include a male human, I would definitely need time to warm up to him. Thank you! - Lots of Love, Oliver
WINSTON SAYS: Hi Oliver thank you for writing it was wonderful to hear from you. A ladies’ man, hm? Ladies, any takers out there? He would be a wonderful companion and since he already knows basic commands, just imagine how much more you can teach him! Please open up your home and heart to this lovely boy! Good luck, Oliver!
