A gentleman to the core, Edgar is a dog with a story to tell. So pull up a section of couch and sit down to spend a quiet evening with this sweet boy. He does have a few years under his collar and tends to play up the ‘lazy old man’ motif but age and circumstance has not slowed him down one bit. He loves to take the occasional adventure and has his moments where he re-lives his younger days to their full glory.
Edgar loves to play with toys! He’ll carry his rubber pirate ducky around everywhere before settling down into a fluffy blanket to work on his rolled rawhide sandwich. Though he can self entertain, Edgar is a dog of the people and will drop everything if he even THINKS someone may give him some attention. He has learned to appreciate love in any form, be it a pat on the head, a rub of the tummy or even just a fond glance. He will happily wag his tail in acknowledgement and give a gentle kiss to your hand.
Life has left Edgar with a few reminders of the past as well as a few things to learn about living in a responsible home. His looks are a little rough around the edges – bit of a pot belly here, some muscle loss there and a handful of scars to go with – but he’s showing us every day to not judge a dog by his coat and that this old dog can still learn new tricks! A full vet workup shows he’s in pretty good health with no major concerns. He’s picking up on the fact that not everyone wants to be used as a body pillow at all times; “Shake” is not the only action people ask for; and as a SEPR dog he will never have to worry about being left alone again. He does know wait, out and come and will ask to be let out to go potty. A home with or without other dogs is just fine by him and kids? Well, they’re pretty ok as well.
Don’t overlook Edgar because he’s a little older or isn’t as pretty as some of our other dogs. His personality and zest for life quickly makes you blind to any little imperfections. Find out for yourself today!
