Hi, my name is Bandit!
I will be 8 years old in December. I am a friendly medium-sized dog (~50 lbs). I get lots of compliments on my good looks and my handsome coat. My vet says I am a perfect specimen of the well-regarded dog breed: canine mix. And of course, I am well cared for by my family and vet, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, I get regular check-ups, and I also have a microchip (in case I ever get lost).
My current family keeps getting bigger, and as much as I like these tiny humans crawling around with me, they are taking over my ability to be the center of attention and be the type of dog that I want to be. So, I am looking for a new place to call home! I think the ideal place would be either, a family with kids old enough to take care of me, take me for walks, and let me play in the backyard; or a family that does not expect to live with young children. I like kids big and small, but for my energetic personality, it is best not to actually live in the same home with kids that are too young to help take care of me.
I have always been a little bit of an anxious dog, meaning I like to compulsively lick my family to calm myself down. That's really the only thing I have ever had any problems with. The more exercise and outside time I get, the less anxious I am. So I really need my exercise - and I will let you know its time to exercise. A fenced in yard helps me get some energy out, but exploring and sniffing along our walking path is best way to help me relax. Nothing beats a good walk. I can easily do three walks a day.
I rarely bark - I bark when I think something unusual is happening or I think I need to warn my family... like I heard an unusual noise outside at night. My family thinks this is a really good trait. I am friendly with just about everyone I meet, dogs and humans. I will most likely never make friends with a cat because I am just a little too much of a dog, I chase rabbits and squirrels, and I am not really sure what to do with a cat when I see them.
I love my family. I love to give them hugs, wrestle, lick their face, lay by their feet, and just be wherever they are. Whenever I am alone, I use that time to catch up on my sleep and dream about chasing squirrels. I want to be well-rested and ready to be affectionate when someone comes home. Also, I am responsible enough to have free roam of the house. I never get into the garbage or chew on anything that isn't meant to be chewed on. My responsibility and patience has only improved with age.
I am really going to miss my family and they are going to miss me. But, it will be best to be in a home where I don't have to share so much time with kids that are just too little and busy for my anxious, happy and energetic personality. I hope you can help me find this new home, and you can be my new family.
