Blake, the “Ladies Man”

blake8

Hey there humans!  My name is Blake, an’ today I getta try out this blog thingy.  It’s my first blog, so I may not say a whole lot… I just wanna try it out!  So, here is my basic info — I’m a Pit Bull/Boxer mix a lil over a year old.  A nice guy who volunteers here found me at the end of his driveway without a collar or anything, and brought me here, and no one ever claimed me, so I’m just hangin’ out here waitin’ for my forever home.

I always get ice cream on my way home from obedience class!

This is a pretty cool place to hang out though, instead of bein’ out on the streets, havin’ to take care of myself.  Here I have a clean, cool place to sleep, I get regular meals, I have lots of girlfriends (both human, and doggy girlfriends), and a roommate, Orchid.  Plus, the humans here give us lots of attention, and there are volunteers, too, who come in and take me to obedience class at The Dogs’ Spot, on outings, and my favorite volunteer who loves to wrestle with all us dogs, and even jumps in the kiddy pools with us!!!  LOL!  Life’s good here… but I do wanna find a forever home, like Hercules has found.  He spent last weekend with his soon-to-be new dad, and came back looking like he had been spoiled with lots of treats and extra tasty food!  I heard he’ll be goin’ to his forever home soon, which is awesome for him!

I’ve been workin’ on being good in obedience class, so I can go on to learn some agility stuff.  Merrick comes back braggin’ ’bout the agility stuff he’s learnin’ with Harrison, and I gotta catch up ’cause I can’t have Merrick of all dogs lookin’ better than me, lol.  Orchid says it’s lots of fun, too!

In case you’re wondering about my nickname, it’s ’cause I like only girl dogs… not that I’ve got anything much against boy dogs, I just wanna be the only boy!  I mean Hercules seems okay, Max is probly all right, but I’m a flirt with the girls like Xena, Bianca, Orchid and I loved havin’ Betty Jo as a roommate before she was adopted.  See, not all the other dudes here can handle all the ladies like I can… ha ha!  When Xena and I first met, it was obvious to me she didn’t really know how to play with dogs (which is kinda sad, but she’s gettin’ much better), so I play bowed to her, hunkered down low and licked her chin to let her know I wanted to play.  She kinda jumped back all startled like the first time I did that, (which was really funny, but don’t tell her I said that) but she’s come around.  I love Orchid, and Bianca too… I think I have a “type”.  Anyway, our humans think it’s funny I’m such a ladies man and one human made a short video ’bout me, and I think I look real good, so you gotta check it out.

Well, I gotta go… I have a date with Xena!  Next time I blog, I’ll tell ya ’bout my ideal forever home.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout me though, check me out here.

Hey humans!  My name is Farley, and I’m a 14 month old Hound mix!  I came here from Kansas City, KS, Animal Control ’cause HSGKC had space and wanted to get me in a new place hopin’ I’d get adopted from here!  Anyways, I like bein’ here lots!  I got a roommate, Bandit, who’s lots and lots of fun to play with!  We like runnin’ round the yard together!  I’m a big boy, and I’m still growin’, like I think our humans think I’ll weigh almost like 85-90 pounds when I’m all growed up.

This is Shine with his new family

Before I talk ’bout me, I wanna update you on some super cool stuff that’s been happenin’ here… like Shine gettin’ adopted!!!  That’s awesome!  I heard from the other dogs he’d been here for almost 5 years.  Shine used to live outside of a drug house as a guard dog and he was treated real bad, so he had some special needs to work on and had to learn to trust humans.  His new parents are real nice and amazing humans, so he’s a real lucky dog! HSGKC is cool ’cause they do keep dogs here ’til their humans find them here!  Max, and a lil guy named Coach went to their forever homes on Saturday, too, which is real cool!  So, it’s been a busy place here!

Okay, so here’s some stuff you’d need to know ’bout me if you’re thinkin’ ’bout makin’ me a member of your family!  First, I’ve got LOTS and LOTS of energy, and I’m real strong… like I’ve heard our humans sayin’ that other than Gia, I’m like the strongest dog here… so I give the humans who take me on a walk (like the Pack Walks which I love, btw) a real work out!  I’m tryin’ to work on my leash manners ’cause I know our humans would like that, but I’m just so excited to go on a walk I can’t help it!  And, I figured out how to go on more walks… see I know how to climb the fence here… tee hee!!!!  I’m a smart, and goofy dude!  If I’m hangin’ out with Bandit in the yard, I gotta be supervised ’cause I’ll try to climb over the fence, and I like to chew on stuffed toys and tennis balls, and one time I swallowed a toy ’cause I didn’t wanna have it taken away from me!  So, what I’m kinda gettin’ at is I’m a bit of a handful… but in a good way!  I do learn stuff pretty quick, and I love all the humans I meet!  I’m good with most of the dogs I meet, too, but ’cause I’m big, and tall, and real energetic and such, not all dogs always like me… but that’s okay ’cause I got a cool roommate in Bandit!

Well, that’s all I got for now!  Plus, it’s time for me to go on a walk… I love that I’ve kinda trained the humans who take care of us!!!  Bye!

Max

Hey humans, what’s up?!?!  My name is Max and I’m one of the new dogs here, so I wanted to introduce myself and tell ya some stuff ’bout me. Someone tied me to a tree here one night and left me… but don’t feel bad for me ’cause of that, ’cause I’m here now and my life is goin’ juuuusst fine!  I have a doggy friend, Leo, I live with and we’re close to the same age, so we get along real good.  I’m a little over a year old… oh, yeah, and I’m a Lab/Hound mix.  I always look worried ’cause I have these “wrinkles” on my forehead our humans think are cute!   Saturday Leo and some of the other dogs here (Nemo, Willis, Rylee, Diesel, and Ladybug) got to go to Brookside Barkey and Bath for a satellite adoption event.  I didn’t wanna go ’cause when I went last month, I was kinda nervous ’bout all the new humans and “busy” stuff goin’ on… so I decided to come back here and hang at the shelter.  But I gotta go to obedience class instead at The Dogs’ Spot so I get to be ’round new humans and new dogs, and I’ve learned stuff so fast, I can start Intermediate Level! I like goin’ to do that kinda stuff, and goin’ on walks (like I LOVE goin’ on the Pack Walks, too!).  I’m hopin’ the dogs who go to the Barkery met some awesome humans who wanna adopt them!

K, so here’s whatcha need to know ’bout me… ’cause I’m kinda nervous at times, and ’cause I have LOTS of energy, I’d do best in a home without small humans… I don’t do nothin’ bad at all, it just takes me some time to warm up to new humans and find out I can trust them.  When I’ve spent some time with a human and know I can trust ’em, I’m real loyal to them! I do like dogs, but can be a little picky ’bout who my friends are… I don’t “get” dogs like Nemo who just like EVERYONE, ya know… I’m a little more selective. Also, I can jump a tall fence thingy too, unless I’m playin’ with Leo and bein’ supervised by a human… hee hee… this way I getta go on more walks!  So, what I’m gettin’ at is that I’d be good in a home without a fence, or with a tall, tall fence and another dog to play with!  One other real, tiny, little thing is I can’t live with cats.  I’ve got so much energy I just wanna chase them and I’m kinda a rough-housin’ kinda guy and don’t really know how to play real gentle with them. I’m so affectionate to the humans I know, and am real smart, too, and I walk pretty good on a leash!  When you see me, you’ll see how cute I am with my wrinkles!

That’s all I got for now, it’s almost time to settle in for the night.  If ya wanna learn more ’bout me, check me out on hsgkc.org.  Bye!
