WHISKEY SR.
Stats: 11 years old, male

Location: Dallas, TX

Adoption Fee: $150

Whiskey Sr. is an 11-year-old, 57 lb. standard boy who is easily one of the best dogs we have met! He enjoys nothing more than being with his person and there is no end to the loving he will soak up! Don’t let his age fool you – he still has plenty of spunk in him! He is an avid toy fanatic and his new family must provide him with an abundance of stuffed toys as he loves to go from one to another and carries them to his favorite sleeping spots! His toys only run a close second to his love of his family – this boy is a true Velcro dog. All you have to do is look his way and he starts wiggling that adorable nub as fast as he can. He’s happy to rest next to you on the couch and will wait until he’s invited up on the bed, but once you give him the cue, he’ll snuggle up to you all night!

 

Whiskey also enjoys playing fetch with either a ball or one of his beloved toys. He gets along amazingly well with any animal he has met so far – dogs, cats, and horses, but is very sensitive and takes it very personally if a dog is unkind to him. He is not interested in playing with other dogs, but will coexist with nice, easy-going dogs seamlessly. He would probably also enjoy being an only dog to get all the love and attention!

Whiskey walks perfectly on a leash and enjoys accompanying you wherever you go. He is a great car rider and always ready to head out on any trip. Whiskey is very well mannered in social settings and would love hanging out with you at patio restaurants, etc. He would love a home where someone is home most of the day or where he can accompany his person to work. He is housebroken and trustworthy left uncrated if left alone. He does get anxious at first when left alone and will try looking out the windows for his person, but once he is settled in, he is content to hang out and snooze waiting for you to return. Maintaining his coat is a breeze because he just lays back and soaks up the attention while you brush him.

 

There isn't a person Whiskey has met yet that he doesn't like. We recommend no children under 12 years as he does tend to jump up trying to grab his toys and has been working on this. He is a smart boy who is eager to please and has already learned sit, down, off, fetch, drop it, leave it, and sits waiting eagerly to be told to eat.
