This sweet fella came to us as a stray, and despite our best efforts to find his people, was never claimed.
This fella has been an exceptional guest, and loves to hang out with all of the staff and volunteers. He has been diligently listening in on our staff meetings, and has voted to get started on his new forever!
Of course we don’t have any history on this guy, but after getting to know him its clear this fella was very loved and is a huge sweetheart! He is very well behaved, and knows exactly where his bed is and knows when its time to settle down for the night. He does have some anxiety and tends to pace around when he’s feeling quite overwhelmed. Being outside seems to soothe him and allows him to get out any anxious energy! He is definitely a nature kind of guy! A space where he could spend some time roaming free soaking in the sun would be best for Eddy!
Edgar likes to chat up a storm with you when you talk to him, and has the most adorable precious howls and yips that he makes out of excitement! You could have a whole conversation with this guy and he will happily tell you just what he thinks!
When asked to sit, sometimes Edgar will make us all laugh as he runs backwards and then sits down a little ways away! Not always does he do this, but when he does we are all so puzzled but find great humor in it.
Edgar has been pretty picky with his food while he’s been here, as its so hard to tell what he was eating before he arrived, we have finally gotten a good routine down with Gastrointestinal Kibble and some yummy meal toppers! This is something his new family may have to play around with as Mr. Eddy does have a sensitive tummy!
Edgar doesn’t seem to mind other dogs that are pretty independent, but does not seem to enjoy rambunctious young dogs that are seeking a playmate. We think he would do well in a home with an older dog, or as an only dog! We are not sure about cats but would be willing to discuss this with potential adopters.
Please put in an application below if you are interested in meeting Edgar!
