A volunteer writes: Welcome to the Sunny side of life! He may be midnight black but this beautiful boy is far and away the brightest, friendliest and snuggliest dog you could ever hope to meet and his happy disposition and huge heart have already won him many devoted fans at the Care Center. A good walker who loves to sniff, passes other dogs nicely and seems to be quite house trained too, Sunny is a charmingly easy companion for an afternoon stroll. Once off-leash he’s even more of a sweet treat, giving out a ton of loving hugs and kisses and so keen to meet his fellow dogs that he can’t help going into deep play-bows, frantic tail-wags and excited vocalizing whenever they come near. Sunny sits on command, comes when called and mouths treats very softly and when he’s not giving out hugs he’s more than happy to receive lots of petting in return, especially butt rubs! Easy to handle and even easier to love, he’d make a great family pet and a wonderful addition to almost any home. So put on your shades, open your heart and make this the best summer ever – welcome snuggly Sunny into your life today! Another volunteer writes: As my colleague said perfectly, “welcome to the sunny side of life”. Mr. Webster needs to invent more adjectives to adequately describe how amazing this boy is. He peed endlessly as soon as we were out the door showing off his housetraining skills, his leash manners are excellent, his coat gleams with good care and grooming, his eyes are soft, intelligent and mesmerizing, he’s a total mush who loves hugs and kisses. He gives stand up hugs, in my lap hugs, hugs any way he can – all gently and easily. He poses for pictures perfectly even though he wasn’t thrilled with my reward treats he still knew what he needed to do. He seems to like other dogs, wanting to play with those we met in the park. Sunny has a kennel card filled with much deserved accolades from staff and volunteers who have spent time with him. Won’t you add your voice to his fan club? Lucky is the person or family who gets to make him theirs!
