This adorable guy is Conway! He is this weeks Waif of the Week and he really hopes he’ll find his family soon! Are you looking for a loving, handsome guy like him? Keep reading and let Conway tell you why he should be your next best friend….
“Hi there, I’m Conway! I’m fun, I’m playful, and I’m ready to be your dog! I hope you want that too. I hope you take one look into my sweet eyes and realize that we were meant to be together. That will be the start of something really special, I can feel it. No one on earth will appreciate you more than I will. I am an all-around lovely and precious dog.
I’m a handsome and athletic, already housebroken, 55 pound Lab/Rottweiler mix. I’m an adorable mixture of sweetness and strength. And it’s a beautiful sight to watch me run and play. I’m only a year old, but I’ve already struggled finding my way in the world. I came to Wayside as a stray via the Belton, MO Animal Control. And I found a home for a while, but I didn’t get along with the other dog. So now I’m back and I’m specifically looking for you! Is that ok? Despite my struggles, I’m a happy-go-lucky dog that loves to be by your side.
I like to keep busy and one of my very favorite things to do is to splash around in the water. Maybe you’re looking for a dog you can take along to the lake with you? I’d like that! Of course a baby pool works just great for me too….I’m not picky and it’s the simple things in life that make me the happiest. I’m also super smart and I already know all sorts of commands, including sit, down, come, shake, and stay. Whew! I can learn more cool things too, if you’d like to teach me! I’m eager to please, a keen listener, and I’m very motivated by praise and tasty treats, so the sky is truly the limit with what I can learn. I will thrive if you stay calm and patient with me and if you use positive reinforcement, so that I can learn what you expect from me. Once I figure it out, I’ll be all over it, because more than anything, I want to make you happy. I love to go for walks or play in a fenced in backyard. I’m not the sort of dog who will enjoy going to a dog park, but I hope to have a yard to run and play in. Sometimes I pull on my leash, so a harness works just great for me. After lots of exercise, I’m an expert at cuddling next to you on the couch and I love getting attention from you.
I’d love to meet the whole family before we all go home together please. My play sometimes gets rough and rowdy with other dogs, so for the time being, I’d prefer to be your only dog. Don’t worry though…I will be happy to give you so much doggie love that I’ll be enough for you! But please bring the kids out and all the adults too, so that we can make sure we’re all a good fit for each other.
I hope you decide to come out to meet me! And I hope we hit it off and become family. I promise to be a loving and loyal companion to you. I know what it’s like to feel alone and I don’t want to ever be homeless again, so I will try my very best, every single day, to make you happy and proud of me. How about it? I need you!
P.S. So, the other day I got to go on a field trip with my favorite volunteer! She said I was an excellent companion and incredibly well behaved. I was perfect riding in the car. And then we went hiking and exploring. After that, it felt amazing just to stretch out on a blanket for a little cuddle time together. It felt so good just being a normal dog for a change. No noisy shelter, no reminders that I’m homeless, no one to interrupt my happiness and contentment. I was just a dog, hanging out with someone I loved. I long for a lifetime of days and feelings like that.”
We hope you’ll stop by soon to meet this playful guy, but in the mean time be sure to check out his pawsome video!
