Meet Dozer!

Dozer is looking for a forever family.

Dozer is looking for a forever family.

Dozer here, and I’m anything but…at least I’m anything but a dozer that is. I’m 3 years old and weigh in at about 55 pounds or so, and I’m energetic, fun lovin’ super duper handsome, and just an all around great guy. I was brought to Wayside by a rescue group, so there isn’t a whole lot of official information on me and my background. I do know lots of commands, and I understand that I have to earn them by doing something for you. I’ve been learning to play a new game – it is called ZEN, and I have to punch the open palm of your right hand to get you to open up your fisted left hand to give me the treat. You can switch hands on me and everything! I like the game because I get the treat once I do the trick. I really am a super smart boy. I’ve got a volunteer friend working with me, and she just can’t believe her eyes. I currently know ‘sit’, down’, ‘touch’, and I can jump through a hula hoop! I play fetch, too, and I love to play with toys! Plus, I have a ‘sit/stay’ that is awesome. You can put me in one, and I can hold my position for up to 10 seconds at least – and, you can move at least 10 feet away from me! I’m stay in my position until you tell me we are ‘all done’.

The best way for us to walk together is if you are using an easy walk harness. Hey, I’m working on loose leash walking, but, I’m still a work in progress. With a harness on, I am the best of boys. I also think that I would make a great agility dog or even a great frisbee dog! I am so incredibly athletic, and I have such an abundance of energy and smarts – well, put it all together, and I might possibly make a fantastic partner in one of these sports.

I bet I would make a great jogging partner for the right family, too. Walks are great because I get to explore, and sometimes the walk ends at the off leash park for a game of fetch or a romp in the pool, so I’m always up for a long one! I really love squeaky toys, too; but I can tear them up playing with them, so maybe you’ll need to get me some indestructible toys, ok? I have a bit of a hard mouth, but, you can work with me on that, and I can learn to take treats gently. It just takes some practice, that’s all.

I’m sweet, friendly, good natured and just so happy to be alive. I’ve been vacationing recently at Man’s Best Friend (that’s why it says I’m In Foster on my picture), and I’ve found a new friend in Judy, who owns the place with her husband, Mike. She likes to watch TV with me in the evenings! We’ve been watching Dancing with the Stars and the X Factor. I love to snuggle up next to her and fall asleep. Being away from all the noise from the other dogs makes me so happy and so relaxed. It also makes me feel special – and very loved. I haven’t had that feeling in a long time in my life.

I’ve got to find a home and a wonderful family like you so that I can leave all this homelessness behind me. I’ve got a lot of love in me, and I’m just sure I can be a great companion for someone very special. Are you my special someone? Please come and meet me, ok?

Love from Dozer
