Description: 
Please contact Pete (thalion70@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. I am a 1 year old, 29 pound male Whippet/Terrier mix in need of a good home. I am a very loving, affectionate and playful guy. I am housebroken and crate trained. I understand when it is time for the family to eat, they may want me to sit in the crate until they finish, so I go in willingly when asked. I LOVE to be taken for walks and go with you on short jogs. I can be let outside on a lead, which is secured into the ground or if held on a leash for bathroom breaks too. If on a lead, I come right back when done! I was enrolled in obedience class, but had to cancel due to a bad knee (luxating patella), which has recently been surgically repaired. The doctors believe I may have been born with this and now have pins in it, to help keep the kneecap in place. There is a very high success rate with this surgery and my recovery is almost complete. I am not expected to have chronic issues once I am healed and am told I have every reason to make a full recovery! I am doing well around 3 Male Labs however since my surgery I am a little protective of my food because they took it away and I was used to having food whenever i wanted it. My foster it dad will tell you about it he is helping me to understand I don't have to fight for my food its a old dog behavior you know. I love to relax on the couch with you, if you’d let me, and have my tummy scratched. I also love to play with toys. I am up to date on all of my vaccinations and have been neutered. I try to get along with indoor cats and am learning not to chase. I am just curious about them and want them to play, but they keep their distance for now as I do come on a little strong. I do not do well around small children but love kids when they are old enough to play with 8 or older would be best.
