The King Is In The House!
Hello ladies and gentleman, too! Elvis here. The king is in the building! I’m a 7-year-old, 50lb gentleman. I’m one of 23 bullies rescued from a puppy mill as part of Project Mercy. I was used as a stud dog for years and actually sired many of the 23 bullies that came into rescue. Whew – I am done with that life!
I’m quite healthy, given my previous life. I’m neutered, up to date on my shots, heartworm free, and I will arrive at your home microchipped.
Let me tell you, up until a few weeks ago I was being treated like a hound dog, living in my own Heartbreak Hotel. I was at the puppy mill the longest of the Project Mercy bunch – 7 years. I was so tired of living in a cage; I was never given love, treats, heck, I didn’t even have a name. I was #411 until CEBR saved me.
On to my new life, my foster mom loves me. I can tell, she’s always saying things like, “Elvis, you’re a hunka, hunka burning love.” Gotcha – ha – she doesn’t say silly things like that. She does tell me I’m a good boy; she also says I’m smart and I’m handsome. I’m not one to brag, but within a week I’ve learned how to sit, give my paw, walk on a leash and go potty outside. In addition, I sit still while my people clean my wrinkles and paws.
Well, that’s all you need to know. Ok, ok, so I’m not perfect. I’m not exactly a prince when it comes to my foster brother, but that’s only because I’m a KING. I say hi to him on occasion, but male dogs weren’t friends where I came from. We had to fight for the ladies attention. I don’t know what it’s like to have a foster brother. All I know is he keeps peeing on the bushes I pee on. It might be too early to tell, but I may need to be the only male in the house. I have NO issues with female dogs, though. We had a female houseguest this weekend, and I was chivalrous and accommodating. I do struggle with stairs. I wasn’t allowed out of my cage often, so I’d never seen stairs before. I’m making improvements, but I’m not a big fan of those things.
My perfect forever would be a home with a flexible schedule, or with a dog walker. I love attention and the outdoors. I get so excited and wave my paw and wiggle my butt when my foster parents come home. I also need a home with very limited, or no stairs. Like I said, they’re sort of scary and even though I can get up a few, I don’t like coming down. I’m thinking a home with a female dog would be good, but I’m not so sure about males yet.
For all of you who’ve made it through my story and to those of you who’ve donated to Project Mercy, I want to say, “Thank you, thank you very much!” If you’re interested in proving to your friends that the king is still alive and living in your home, go ahead and apply on www.ebullymatch.com. It’ll be a blue summer without a forever home...
Until next time,
I've Been Adopted!
