The Animal Placement Bureau Blog

The Animal Placement Bureau is a volunteer foster care network with no paid staff and no sheltering facility. All of the dogs in our care live with our volunteers and become as much a part of their family as their own dogs. There is no time limit on our foster care system. When asked, "What happens if your dogs don't get adopted?" we are proud to be able to say, "They come back home with us until we find just the right home for them -- NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES."

Meet Wally

Wally is truly one of the sweetest dogs I have every met. He LOVES to be pet and cuddled and would do anything for just a little bit of attention. This little guy was found wandering outside of a gas station.

No one was looking for him.

He still looks for his people, wandering around whining but is starting to understand that they are NOT coming back.

Wally is good with everyone and everything - dogs, cats, kids, men (he LOVES men), women - you name it, he loves it! Wally does well with othe dogs, but is still learning how to "play". He ignores cats. Things he loves nearly as much as people are balls, food, stuffy toys and treats.

Wally is crate trained, and is doing really well with his house training. He never has "accidents", but was neutered as an adult. Because of this, he does mark occasionally, but is doing really well learning that marking is not something a sweet puppy should do. Wally does t have that beagle bay, but uses it sparingly, normally he barks twice per day - once when he sees you in the morning, once when you get home from work.

If you are looking for an extremely easy going dog to join your family, Wally is definitely the dog for you!
