47018 – Dash
Why Choose me?
Update 8/30: Dash and Bree are now playmates! They can only play together if a staff member is present but, if things are quiet around the shelter while you are visiting, you can ask if it’s a good time for a play date! Having a new friend is especially great for Dash. He’s been at the pound for a long time and playing with a friend really lifts his spirits. Now, if he could only find a forever playmate in a forever home!
Update 7/31: Dash is a resilient boy – when he first arrived he was a bit scared of all the noise and smells at the shelter, but it didn’t take him long at all to adjust, and now he seems perfectly happy to be here. He’s got plenty of healthy food, new people to meet and even a play buddy (Jean) he can carouse with in the interaction pens. Which is not to say that he’s in no hurry for a real home – nothing can replace the love and care of a real family. Dash could also use more regular exercise than he gets here – he’s starting to get a little chubby! Dash loves to run, play and go for walks, so he’ll have no trouble dropping that extra couple of pounds!
Update 7/7 From a volunteer: “Dash is an awesome dog! He used to live by me & he was frequently out without a leash in the front yard with his owner. He got along well with everyone I saw him interacting with, LOVES treats, & was always fine with my dogs when we were out walking. My pit can be a little reactive sometimes but Dash was very good at reading her cues, and they always ended up playing whenever we encountered him.”
Update 6/1: Dash is a wonderful dog! He’s happy, affectionate, and fun. I like playing fetch with Dash–he loves chasing a ball, and he’s pretty good about bringing it back if he wants to keep playing. If he’s tired, he’ll drop it and let you know it’s time for something else. Sitting for treats and being loved on are other pastimes that Dash enjoys. He’s happy for any amount of attention you give him, and it shows with that great smile of his. I hope someone discovers what a super dog Dash is and gives him the home he longs for and deserves.
Update 5/19: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Dash has been neutered and brought up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
Update 5/15: Dash has tested NEGATIVE for heartworms!
Dash is a mild-mannered boy. He was shy when I first took him to an interaction pen, but his shyness slipped away once I petted him. When I’d scratch the side of his head, he’d press his head against my hand. He’s such a sweet boy. I later learned that Dash and Coby were surrendered together. They do well with kids and other dogs, but their owner said they had too many dogs. How sad that these boys have lost their home. I plan on asking if they can be together in an interaction pen. Both are friendly, good-natured dogs, and I bet they’d like having a family reunion. If you’re looking for a big, gentle boy, come meet Dash. He’s a sweetheart who’d love a new home.
