me introduce you to Floyd:
Floyd is 9-1/2 yrs old and weighs 72lbs. Here are some very
important things you should know about Floyd:
Floyd gets 5 out of 5 paws for lovability. He just wants
someone or lots of someones to love him. He loves his belly
rubs and loves to be told how handsome he is. Floyd loves
to go for walks and car rides. He is also very happy to
curl up on a dog bed and watch some T.V. with you.
Floyd also gets 5 out of 5 paws for sweetness. He has not
met a person he has not liked. He will bark when he sees
new people but it is all because he gets so excited. He
has met men, women and children. He is very gentle when
he gives kisses and when he takes treats from you.
gets 2 out of 5 paws for house manners. He did not spend
a lot of time in the house with his first family. He was
either tied outside or in the basement. He is not destructive
and he is housebroken. His two downfalls are he likes to
counter surf and he likes to eat tissues and toilet paper.
We are working on both of these things with him. He is learning
the off command and leave it.
Floyd gets 5 out of 5 paws for grooming. When Floyd came
into rescue he was a mess. He was covered in mats and was
very dirty. The groomers said he was so sweet and let them
wash and brush him. He was giving kisses and offering his
paw to everyone. Floyd had to visit the groomer a second
time when he met a skunk one night.
Floyd only gets 1 out of 5 paws for the vet. He was not
use to going to the vet. He was very scared and did not
like the vet touching him all over. You can't blame the
guy after his examine the vet found that he had some bad
teeth. Come to find out Floyd had to have 3 teeth removed.
While having his teeth taken care of the vet noticed he
was already missing 3 other teeth. Floyd is on a soft diet
right now. He will stay on the soft diet for about a month
while his mouth heals.
gets 1 out of 5 paws for his dog to dog skills. Floyd is
not aggressive he just hasn't learned his doggie etiquette.
Floyd never had a chance to meet other dogs and at 9 years
old it appears best all around that Floyd be an only dog.
Floyd only gets only 1 paw out of 5 for crate training.
Floyd does not like being in his crate. He does go into
it, but he is not happy. He will bark and then settles after
awhile. He is crated when no one is home. At night he has
a small area that is sectioned off where he sleeps. He is
quiet all night.
Floyd gets 3 out of 5 paws for trainability and smarts.
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Floyd knows
sit, down and paw. He is learning wait, stay, leave it,
and down. Floyd wants to please his people so much.
