We met Lion when he was 8 months old, after he had been left at a shelter.  Someone had bred his parents and found they could not sell all the puppies in the litter; they decided it was too expensive to keep the last two and took them to the shelter.

Since we did not have an available foster home, we asked an approved adopter if she and her family would be willing to foster Lion with the possibility of adopting him if all worked out well.  They have two female dogs, a senior Pointer/mix (around 12 years old), named Stellar, and a 7-year-old Terrier/mix, named Moto.

His foster Mom has given us an excellent description of Lion’s personality, as follows:  He is a master of the head tilt and fetch, long and lean, he is a very fast runner but is learning how to heel on a leash as well.  His favorite things include nibbling toys, taking all the fluffing out (and the squeaker), trying to beat the ball to its destination before bringing it back to us.  He hangs out with his sister dogs, Moto and Stellar; he tends to copy Stel, laying exactly the way she does while next to her.  He and Moto can go for hours, playing “keep away” with a Kong toy.  Lion is never snippy or moody; he enjoys walks to the dog park behind our house, where he gets along with everyone.  When we get home, he sticks his entire snout in the water bowl and makes a big, wet mess, which we clean up with the Lion Towel; the he lays down and gets belly rubs till his l’il heart is content. We run the 5-mile trail behind the house a few mornings a week, and he could probably go 3 more laps each time if we could, so he needs a lot of exercise.

In answer to our question about what would be the ideal home for Lion, his foster Mom wrote, “Ours!”  We agree, and are happy to announce that Lion has found his forever home.
