Last week, we had the opportunity to be a vendor at the Wake County Walk-n-Wag event, which raises money for the American Cancer Society. There were quite a few rescue groups there showing off their adorable adoptable pups, so this week, I decided that in addition to featuring the APS of Durham Dog of the Week, we are including a list of a few of the dogs we met at the Walk-n-Wag event as well. So without further adieu:
APS Dog of the Week:
Breed/Gender: Rat Terrier/Male
Age: 2-3 years old
Personality: Friendly, affectionate, but a little unsure of himself. Since he has a rather anxious, sensitive side, he’ll do well with kind, calm handling and training. Ike is looking for a calm, low-stress home where he can be an only dog.
APS Kennel: 19
Barley's thoughts: Oh, Ike. Trust me - As a shelter alum who is somewhat anxious and sensitive, I know what you're going through. You just want to protect yourself and the incredible cuteness that is...well...you. But someday soon (and with that little face, I know it will be soon), someone will come and swoop you up and give a safe home where you can get all the belly rubs you could ask for. It happened to me, and I know it'll happen for you.
