Adopted!! Waldo

Posted Jan 11, 2013 at 1:32 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!   Where’s Waldo?  Waldo is in Arkansas, waiting for his new home.  He was rescued from a small rural shelter in Bradley County, Arkansas, and his time was running very short.  He was first on the “list.”  That would have been a shame, because this is a wonderful dog!  Waldo is estimated to be 4 or 5 years old, and weighs approximately 15 pounds.  He has the “calico” coloring, or Irish-marked coloring, and is a handsome boy!  He has beautiful eyes and a wonderful personality.  Waldo is crate trained, and is very smart.  He learned the doggie door in his foster home on the first day, and is doing very well with his housetraining.  He is playful and affectionate, but not overly active.  Waldo would be a wonderful dog for a family with kids, or just about any other family situation.   He walks well on a leash, and loves to ride in the car (although he likes to sit in your lap).  And he enjoys an occasional rat run with the other dogs in his foster home, especially playing “keep away” with a toy!  We are still getting to know this sweet boy, but so far have seen absolutely no behavioral problems.  He doesn’t seem to mind cold weather or rain, and will relieve himself outside even when it’s raining.  He is just happy to be alive, and follows his foster mom or foster dad everywhere.  If you are looking for a well-mannered new addition to your family, please consider Waldo!  For more photos of him, please check his photo album:    And be sure and watch him in action in the video below!

    We submitted an application yesterday for Waldo. He seems like a sweet boy that would fit in well with our household. We have another rat terrier, female, 8 years old.(& a 4 year old daughter who loves her dogs) It looks as though he is good with other dogs. Our female dog has always tended toward the alpha dog role, but not aggressive in any manner :) We lost our male rat terrier of 13 years last month due to an aortic clot, and he tended to be a somewhat submissive dog. Waldo seems as though he would fit in well with our girl, Sonata. She misses her companion, and we miss having two dogs. Can you give us a little insight? Do you know if you have received any other applications for him? He really tugged at our heartstrings, and we would love to give him a home :)
