My name is Big Red. I am one of the most beautiful creatures you have ever
seen! I am as sweet as I am beautiful. I love to be loved and to give love
and my snuggles are like the warmest, coziest blanket on the coldest winter
day. I am five years old and my first two years must have been very bad
because I have some scars and I lost one of my legs. Somehow I made it to
the shelter and then my mom found me and took me home with her. She has
given me so much love and a wonderful home for the last three years and I
adore her for that. But you see, the problem is that I have come to adore
her so much that I can’t bring myself to share her anymore with my pet
siblings. I can no longer live with other pets.
I need to be in a home where I am the absolute center of attention with no
other pets and no children. I am low energy by nature and tend to spend the
majority of my time sleeping. I love a good bone to chew, a tennis ball
makes me access my inner puppy and a game of tug every now and then is
great fun. Car rides are the bomb! I don’t require a lot of exercise which
is good because I tend to be leash reactive and bikes and skateboards scare
me. I do go to daycare and enjoy that. That environment is safe for me as I
do not have to compete with any of those dogs for my mom’s attention or for
food or treats. I would do best in a home where my people are home more
than they are gone.
My mom is devastated. So devastated. She is writing this for me right now
with tears streaming down her face and a heart broken wide open and
shattered into pieces. She never thought she would find herself in this
situation, having to make such a hard decision. I don’t really understand
everything that is happening, but I know she loves me and has my best
interests at heart. She will not abandon me and she will not toss me away.
She will work tirelessly to find a solution that gives me what I need.
I am neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. I take one daily
medication. I am fully housetrained, but a crate is not an option for me
given trauma I must have experienced in my past. Mom crated me early on and
I broke two teeth trying to get out. I stay in the house when she is gone
and have access to a dog door and a fenced in back yard. I love to be lazy
in the sun!
If you have a big heart and could open it to let me in, I will make it
swell with my love and admiration. I really am a sweet boy, I just need the
right situation. Serious inquiries only please. This is a very hard time
for my mom and your consideration of that is much appreciated.
