Vail? As in the resort?
What do you think of when someone tells you to describe Vail? Beautiful. Majestic. Relaxing. A sight to behold.
Well, I’m definitely all that and some!
But, you don’t need to go to Vail for a vacation when you have me at your home!
My name is Vail. As you can see from my picture, I’m a stunningly handsome boy. I’m a little over a year and a half old, and I’m looking for my forever home.
As an extra special treat – you can also see that I have pictures from when I was a puppy. How can you resist my cute puppy pictures?
Where should I start on telling you about me?
I’m handsome (as we've established already).
I'm cat friendly and small dog friendly (bonus points for sure).
I’m good with GOOD children. (No loud rowdy kids).
I'm good in an apartment. (double bonus points).
I potty on lead (3x bonus points).
While I'm one of the most handsome boys you'll ever set your eyes on, I am a shy and cautious boy. I'm sweet and affectionate, but I'm not the type to seek out affection. If you want to come over to me and hug on me, that’s good.
I have to be with another dog. I look to another dog for guidance and courage. Currently, I live in an apartment, and I go potty well on lead. I don’t get real crazy, so I don’t make a lot of noise, but I will cry if I’m alone. That’s why I need to live with another dog.
So, I need another dog, and I need someone who is patient with me. I cower if you approach me too quickly. I’m learning. It takes time, this learning thing. It’s hard to be cautious and handsome because everyone wants to pet me. The struggle is real!
Right now, I’m being crated and I can go for 5-6 hours while in my crate. I let my foster family know when I have to potty. I will whine and get antsy.
So now I’m sure you are wondering why I’m the spotlight dog, right?
Well, it’s one thing that I’m shy and cautious. But I also have an issue with my ticker. I must be on heart meds for the rest of my life. I’m allowed to run and play! I don’t have any restrictions, but I need to take two heart meds.
I have a heart murmur. So, one is a blood pressure pill (which I’m sure several of you humans take too), the other is Sildenafil. (Yes, it’s Viagra. No, I don’t need it for THAT, and I’m also sure some of you humans take that too). It helps with my Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia and Pulmonary Hypertension.
My foster family loves me and is very worried that I won’t find a home that understands how shy I am, and will be unhappy with me. Tell me that isn’t so!
Tell me you’re the family that will love me and love to watch me grow and blossom into a wonderful family member.
And you’ll have puppy pictures to show off too! Look at how cute I was, and how gorgeous I am now.
So if I sound like your kind of hound – let your adoption counselor know, or contact CGA directly!
