Hello friends! My name is Stoic and I am a true gentleman looking for my new best friend(s)
My foster mom isn’t sure about my whole story, but not too long ago some wonderful RCMP officers found me injured in a ditch and were kind enough to take the time to get me some help. My front leg was broken into the joint and the lovely people at AARCS got me the surgery I needed to save my leg. Despite all this pain, I’m not a complainer and my foster mom calls me one of the kindest, gentlest dogs she’s ever met. I think I’m about 3 human-years old, whatever that means. I’m an extra large fellow, currently about 75 lbs, but Mom think’s I could stand to gain a few more!
In my new foster home, I’ve made friends with the resident kitty and I’m also nice to my foster sister, a 7 month old puppy. That said, with my injured leg, I’m not really into playing so I tend to keep my distance so she doesn’t accidentally hurt me while jumping around like a fool! I haven’t met any little humans yet, but despite my size I am surprisingly calm and gentle so I think I’d do pretty well.
My favorite thing so far is being brushed and offering my paw for a little hand-holding. Mom think’s I’ve spent a lot of time outside because my coat is so, so thick! I personally think she should just turn down the heat and snuggle up to me for warmth. Think of the utility savings!
I love that I’ve got a big fenced yard right now, and I know that it’s where I go to do my business. No accidents in the house for me! Maybe one day when my leg is better I’ll get to go for one of those “walks” I’ve heard so much about. I can’t wait to explore!
By the way, did you guys know about countertops? I learned that I can reach up there no problem and sometimes there’s some interesting things to see. Mom learned her lesson. Don’t worry though, I don’t eat, wreck or chew anything. I only knocked over the cat food container so kitty could have a snack! It was her idea….
Unfortunately I’ll be on crate-rest for 6-8 weeks while my leg heals, but after that I’ll be ready to find my fur-ever home! Will it be with you??
Giant gentleman looking for love!
