Bandit's Happy Routine
Monday, 28 July 2008

Bandit came to the shelter in 2002 as a puppy and wasn't adopted until 2005. Those adoptive parents returned him in March 2007 -- because their landlord changed pet restrictions, and he was too large to stay with them.


And then, along came Stephanie who adopted him in April 2007. Here is her update.


Isn't he a handsome boy? I love to brag on him!


Bandit is such a great boy. He started out shy, skittish of noises, shadows, strangers, and things out of the ordinary. After a few weeks, he settled into a routine.


He loves his big yard - running the perimeter looking for squirrels who dare enter the yard, dragonflies to chase, communicating with other dogs around the neighborhood... One of his favorite things to do is ride in the car to the dog park. He sits just like a person in the front seat with a big smile on his face. He will play with his friends until he is at the point of exhaustion. He comes home and sacks out on the bed, head on the pillow.


He gets a little cranky when it is time for me to scoot him over. He lets out a big sigh, as if I am an annoyance. He makes me laugh every single day with his antics. He has brought true joy to my world and everyone loves him!
