BIO UPDATE (11/18/2020): Colin has been with us for over a month now and he is definitely a PEOPLE doggy! He LOVES to be near his people no matter what. He does fine with the other dogs and will interact with them and even play. However, his first choice is his human. Initially he slept next to our bed in a doggy bed all night long without a peep. Then, he discovered the ramp we have leading up to our bed and we began to wake up with him in bed with us. Colin is a snuggler and a great heater for the colder nights.
Colin is very smart but also, in typical doxie fashion, hard headed. At feeding time, he eats separately from our family dogs and when we leave, he happily goes in his crate, with a treat of course. He does great with pottying outside, but prefers you at least stand outside with him. We have not witnessed any accidents in the house. We do not believe he would be great with cats. Small children would also not be a good fit for him. If you are an adult looking for a companion, this could be your guy. Colin would be fine as an only dog. He would not do well in an apartment or high-rise. He has a booming bark that would be hard to overlook.
This handsome, sweet-faced little man is wrapping up heartworm treatment and takes his meds unlike any other dog I have ever seen! He gets liquid in a syringe squirted into his mouth. He comes for his meds as if it were a treat! Please check-out his video.
Colin’s must haves for his new home would include:
- A fenced yard
- A very devoted human of his very own who is home more than not
- Someone who will be patient with him, we believe he is a breeder dump
- Best as an only dog, he loves his people. (Possibly another doggy but one who would let him be dominant.)
- No apartments or high-rises.
- No cats and no young children
BIO: Colin came from Arkansas where he was in a shelter and a Good Samaritan adopted him to keep him out of the wrong hands because his adoption fee had been waived. This person then reached out to us to ensure he went to a good home because he’s such a sweet boy. He was pretty timid when he first came into rescue, but he’s slowly learning to trust and loves to be with his people.
