What can I say ... they got me as a puppy, and when a new baby came along, they said good-bye.

Like many other dogs, I sometimes do get excited when someone rings the door bell, and their conclusion was that I was often scared of new people. Maybe they didn’t take me to many places when I was a puppy. They also mentioned that I didn’t walk well on leash.

But here I am always a perfect gentleman. I am a bit shy sometimes but this hasn’t prevented me from becoming the favorite dog of quite a few dog-walkers. They love my pointy ears and how I trot nicely. If they stop to talk to someone, I quietly sit down and wait for our walk to resume.

I sure hope to find a quiet home, maybe even with another dog, as I used to live with one and get along really well with them.

I am camera-shy and that’s why I always look so serious.
