Dog of the Week: Pirate

Julia D Dog of the Week

Ahoy, there mateys! My name is Pirate, and I have the eye patch to prove it! I am available for adoption through Last Hope and I am so excited. They say I’m a mix of breeds, but I tell you – I am 100% love, cuddles, and kisses! I love my people, and I’d do anything to learn how to make you happy. I’m smart and housebroken, and I know how to sit!   There is some confusion about my past, though. When Last Hope got me, they were told that I was 9 years old and had lived outside on a chain my whole life – but no one who’s met me believes I’m 9. I’m maybe more like 6? And I was on a chain for a long time, that’s true – but I’m also housebroken, and I love to snuggle on the couch. I’m very good in my crate, too.

While I was tied outside I didn’t have a very good life – I was shot by a mean person, and I was attacked by mean dogs, too. I’m kind of scared of dogs now, and so I can be a little defensive. So while I live right now with other dogs and cats, I can be protective of my food and my toys, and I like to be the center of attention when I’m cuddling. I’d love to be the only dog, but I could live with non-curious cats and submissive dogs.   My foster mom has promised me that I never have to live outside again, and I am so glad because inside I am warm and dry. I have so much love to give, and I am such a good boy-can you find room in your heart for me?

Pirate’s adoption fee is $250 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
