Colby – ADOPTED!!

Posted May 1, 2013 at 12:45 pm in Latest News

ADOPTED!!    This is Colby!  Our vets estimate his age at 6 to 7 years old.  He is a very handsome classic looking boy, and is a type B or Teddy Roosevelt Terrier, which basically means he has short legs.  He is approximately 18 pounds and 14 inches tall at the shoulder, with a nub of a tail. Colby acts much younger than his age and loves to play with toys.   He especially loves Milk Bone dog biscuits and animal crackers!  Colby can run like lightening and jump like a rabbit.  He LOVES to give kisses and can be pretty stealthy at it too, sneaking kisses in when you aren’t expecting them.  Colby gets along with all the dogs in his foster home.  He also likes children, and is pretty laid back and docile with them.  He listens well and walks nicely on a leash. Colby just completed heartworm treatment, and is ready for his new home.  Although he would prefer to sleep under the covers, he is crate trained. Colby enjoys the back yard, and is a quiet, dignified guest in his foster home.  He really loves a little lap time in the evenings.  After a while playing, a nap on the deck in the sun is a favorite spot. Colby is housebroken and doesn’t like being crated, but he will do as he is told.  He rides well in a car, preferring to lay on the floor in the back seat for a snooze until you get to your destination.  He had been living on a farm for the past few years but is back in foster care because his owners fell on hard times.  Are you looking for your new best friend?  Colby is taking applications for a new family now!  He will be a loyal, loving companion for the lucky family who adopts him.  Be sure to let him know, so he can pack his bags to come home!  For photos of Colby in his foster home, click here:

    I have the perfect home for Colby! We are semi-retired real estate brokers, financially comfortable, 3/4 acre fenced, 1/2 acre unfenced yard, comfy spots all over our home and needing to fill a void for a new member of our family…. His name even has special meaning for us!!
    There is no doubt where he belongs—–with us!
