Hey there! I’m Wellington! Sometimes mom calls me Wells – I don’t mind – I always come right to her when she calls me. I have been living with my foster family for a couple of months while I recovered, and rested from being on my own on the Houston streets. Being in a home is definitely better!
I have three canine brothers – one is a GSD just like me, the other is a big clumsy Great Dane mix, and the grumpy one is a lab. He doesn’t play with me much – but no big deal – I don’t bother him. I watched my brothers play with each other and with mom and the human boy. I have learned how to play fetch, which requires me to give my toy up when I prefer to just trot several victory laps around the house with it first. I've also learned how to play tug of war, and chase. I have also learned that mom will let you sit in her lap! When one dog gets out of mom’s lap – I jump right up there to take his place. We wouldn’t want her to think we don’t all love her.
The best thing about home life is the soft warm beds, the cool air, not being rained on, food bowls that are filled twice a day and a huge water bowl. THIS is the life! I try really hard to be a great member of this family pack. I sit for mom whenever she asks, and she says I am very gentle when I take my treats. That makes me smile – the other GSD gets in trouble for “shark mouth."
Mom is teaching me to walk on a leash. Why I have to stay on one side is beyond me, but I try my best to make her happy. But what else is a dog to do when you smell something amazing on the other side of her?
Mom says that I am ready for a family of my own. I would love to have a buddy to hang with – canine or human doesn’t matter, as I like everyone. I am willing to love you unconditionally, sit in your lap, sleep at your feet, bark when an intruder knocks on the door, and follow you wherever you go. Want to meet me? Just ask!
