RetrieverView Pebble on Petfinder
I, Pebble, am wise beyond my years. I’m an approximately 8-year-old Retriever/Husky mix weighing 45 pounds. Having had to fend for myself and scavenge for food has given me a different perspective on life. I’m grateful for all the simple comforts. So far, life in my foster home is sweet! I have an orthopedic dog bed that is very comfy and a regular supply of food and even these things called jerky treats (LOVE THEM). In order to show my appreciation, I never potty in the house (I pant and get frantic when I have to go, because I don't want to muss the house). I know sit and down. Secretly I even like my crate because it makes me feel like I belong. I also enjoy walks and though I occasionally pull, I am overall good on leash and great in the car. Yeah, life is good. Now, I don't want to make all kinds of demands on a new family, but I do have one hard and fast rule: no cats! Dogs are fine as long as they are mellow like me. Because of my thick fur, I love water and snow, and really enjoy being brushed. I also like attention, but don't worry, I'm not the "needy" type. Now I’m searching for a family of my own. I don’t really know how this works, but I hope you’ll come meet me this Saturday. I trust you’ll see how sweet and devoted I am. I’ll be watching for you! Please check our events page at http://www.SecondCityCanineRescue.org to find where this dog may be shown this weekend. If you are interested in adopting this dog, you must send an application or email us at email@example.com prior to a Saturday Adoption Event so we know you plan on attending. If we do not receive any communication from you, the dog may be adopted out at our event prior to 12 pm if the perfect home comes along. 🙂 The breed or breed mix listed for each dog is simply a guess. The profile software program requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. However, visual breed identification is unreliable. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess. Dogs are individuals. Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near Chicagoland... we are sorry but we cannot accept any out of state applications. We look forward to speaking with you!
