About Pancake

Foster Mom " I couldn't be prouder of Pancake. He walks well on the freedom harness/leash with the most delightful prance, nose in the air scenting all, checking in with me. He's more then a pretty face with a rocking bod, he's wickedly smart, eager to please his peeps, quick to learn. Being treat motivated makes him quickly an honor student. His repertoire includes sit, down, paw, share, high five, touch, leave it, sits like such a gentleman to be harnessed/leash, wait (to descend/ascend steps, cross the street). We're working on ringing the bell to go out. Though its only seconds, he's waiting to eat, great strides for a pup that was starved. Pancake also loves to play with plushy toys, tugs, ball and brings it back."Such great news for his fans to hear, but, wait, there's more. Pancake has gone on several pack walks in Pennypack Park and MLK drive with other people and pups. He's curious, inquisitive at the bicycles, joggers whizzing by, checking in to ensure all's okay. Pancake's made several new friends including men. Our pup just needs a little time to know he can trust, is safe with you. His new, current friends understood, took it slow. They took a seat, chilled, relaxed allowing Pancake to check them out in his own time. Once he knew, he's all in with tail wags, wiggle butt and now giving kisses.Don't go yet, yes, there's still more. It seems our boy is a love pup, snuggler extraordinaire. Foster Mom "Pancake has the most chill, loving demeanor. He enjoys his walks, but he also loves to chill, snuggle on the couch, as well as in his bed or a sun spot on the floor. . Pancake gets along with his foster brother so well, and is so well behaved that he's out and about with him throughout the day, sleeping with all at night. He's made no attempt to chew anything except his toys, and is housetrained. His foster brother has shown him the ropes, no need to get up yet til mom throws herself together for their first walk, and the joy of sunning themselves on the deck."Pancake is looking for his furever home, one dog savvy with older children that will give him the love, time to acclimate, one he can share laugh with, snuggle on the couch He has so much love to give, receive that he would love to have them home with him throughout the day to share their own snuggle time, and laughs.
