Popeye – ADOPTED

We named this little man “Popeye” after the cartoon character from long ago.  Not only because of his appearance, but the ‘swaggering’ personality he has as well!  Popeye has been one-eye sighted since birth and does not ‘side scan’.  He doesn’t miss seeing with both eyes because he has never experienced it.  He is 2 -3 years old and only about 6 lbs.

This little man is small, but mighty.  He doesn’t have a clue as to his small size.  Popeye’s approach to the world, other dogs and humans is, “What else ya got?”  He gets along well with most smaller dogs, but has a dominant personality.  He would do better being an only dog, or in a home with another dog who is confident but not dominant and not too submissive either.  He does tend to protect his toys from his canine pals, and can be a little possessive of his human.

Love toys, balls, everything. Has the cutest little bark, very raspy, suits him. Doesn’t bark at every little thing like a lot of toy dogs, mostly when playing. Doesn’t like fireworks, barks at those.  NO KIDS, as he has a tendency to lead with his mouth when uncertain. Needs someone who genuinely knows and loves dogs, and is very patient.

Popeye is pretty much house trained, but does have a marking twitch if he smells another dog had been in the house.  He learns quickly if caught, and when told NO, he understands.   He is good with cats also, but sometimes doesn’t know when to stop, thus annoying his kitty friends.

Popeye will need an owner who will not coddle or spoil him.  They must provide proper leadership and discipline, or else Popeye will be the one telling his human what to do.  He is not a dog who should be allowed to sleep in your bed or sit on your lap right of the bat.  A proper mutual respect relationship must be established before this could be allowed.

Popeye’s adoption fee is $295.  He is Neutered UTD with his vaccinations, dewormed, flea treated, and microchipped.

An adoption application and home visit is required.  Please email us at adoptionsdmrs@yahoo.ca to request an application to be emailed to you.
