Dudley has lots of short bursts of energy. Long hikes are not his style, but half-hour to 45 minute walks are his speed. His has a high and wide jumping style so it looks like he is flying! He has cleared creeks before leaving me at one side with him on the other! He likes to lick - humans, clothing, the couch! He likes his humans. I do allow him on the couch where he likes to "spread out". He loves resting his head in your lap. He does not like to be left alone, but tolerates it. He needs to remain inside if his humans are gone - he is capable of jumping high fences to look for his absent human. Although he does kennel and I have done so when I first got him, I do not kennel him anymore. He lays nearby when I work from my computer. (I like to feed him a scrambled egg with his morning dry food - he get dry food at night). He does like to chew so we remain cognizant of remotes, computer mice, and shoes - he prefers these things to his other chew toys. He is very loyal. Not a mean bone in this boy's soul. Although he requires patience, he is a good and loving boy and this foster will miss him when he finds his forever family.

Everyday 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animals, and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a puppy mill, and remind people to adopt from a shelter or a rescue. Thank you! (from here)
An intact dog can produce two litters a year of 6-10 puppies per litter, which means in six years, one female dog and her offspring could produce up to 67,000 dogs. An average of 40,000 cats/dogs are euthanized in Colorado each year (that's JUST Colorado!).
