There have been many dog adoptions at Orphans of the Storm® over the last couple of weeks, so I only have two new guys to write about today. But there are still many more eager to meet you and enjoy the rest of their summers (and lives!) in a new forever home.
Buddy the nine-month-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is an energetic pup. When we went around the woodland preserve trail, Buddy was much more interested in running than walking–so if you’re looking for a new friend to motivate you to exercise, Buddy could be your guy! However, when Buddy was off-leash in the Enrichment Park, he was much more mellow and enjoyed meandering around and sniffing. After he did some exploring on his own, Buddy came back to me to get some snuggles.
Buddy is still a puppy, so he would benefit from training. He seems eager to learn, though! When I practiced the “sit” command with him, he did it faster each time. Buddy also gets along with other dogs and participates in play groups. Sometimes he’s in a more playful mood, and other times he’s calmer. If you’re looking for a fun pooch to join your home, come in soon to meet Buddy!
Roscoe the two-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Shepherd mix must have gotten some training at some point, because he very politely sat while I put his leash on and also sat to wait while I opened the door to the shelter hallway–without being asked! Roscoe is also easy to walk on the leash. In fact, he moves at a pretty slow pace during his walks because he’s interested in doing lots of sniffing. It was hard to get a picture of his adorable face because his nose was always to the ground!
Roscoe enjoyed snuffling his way around the Enrichment Park. He watched me throw a toy but didn’t seem too eager to chase it or bring it back to me. Roscoe is an easy-going pooch who gets along with other dogs as well as cats. He attends play groups and even does well with some of the dogs who are more selective about their playmates. Whether you’re looking to add to your furry pack or just want one, be sure to say hello to Roscoe on your next visit to the shelter!
