I'm getting ready to go to my forever home so my foster dad Jim took a farewell video of me playing with my foster brother Ivan. Jim taped the EFL (Eskie Football League) Dog Bowl on New Year's Day... so, enjoy more of ME ! There's also another video of me playing a little further down in my posting. I'm a video star on YouTube now TeeHee! Here's woofin' at ya, Chewy.
Chewy's original posting:
SWM (Single white male) looking for LHC (loving human companion) for LTR (long term relationship). Likes to go on long walks, watch the sun set. Loves to hug and snuggle. Playful, loyal and protective. Well groomed and mannered. Good listener willing to listen to you for hours and hours while giving you adoring looks.
Hi, my name is Chewy and I'm a miniature American Eskimo dog. How do you like my first attempt at my singles ad? See, I'm a big LOVER! And I want to love YOU. That means I like to be with you all the time, following you everywhere and snuggling with you on the couch, in your chair, on your bed ... everywhere. Just wagging my tail whenever I see you. I also give REAL hugs. If you hold me up to your head I'll put my arms around your neck and press my head against yours. And my foster Dad says that I have the softest fur that he's ever felt on an eskie.
But there's a catch. I play hard to get at first. Before I can give my heart away to you I have to test you. When I first meet a stranger, I bark at them and growl and show my teeth. But I'll let you in on a secret ... it's just an act. If you're nice to me after a while I'll know that you won't hurt me. After that ... watch out! You'll never get rid of me! I warm up to children faster ... especially young girls. I'm a little intimidated if you're really big and tall. After all, I'm just a little guy at only 14 inches tall. My foster Dad discovered that if he sat or lay down on the floor next to me then I warmed up to him a lot faster. But I really adore his daughter who happens to be cute and small (like me!!)
Here's why. I once belonged to a young girl who was having some family problems and so I got sent to live outside. Then the young girl got sent somewhere else to live and I got left behind ... and then forgotten!! Until the girl's family heard me barking. So then I was de-barked!! How rude! But don't worry ... I can still bark to warn you of intruders. It's just not a very loud bark. And I really don't bark any more than your typical eskie.
My foster dad took this video of me so you can see me in action!
I'm current on all my shots, heartworm negative and on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. I tested positive for Lyme disease, but I've been treated for that and I shouldn't have any problems. I absolutely LOVE my toys and playing fetch is one of my favorite games. I just don't always bring it back to you. I'm an active little guy and love to run around, both indoors and outdoors. I also like to climb on things. And I can jump pretty high. I jump with such ease that I seem to have springs on my feet. I can easily jump over my foster dad's gates, but I only do that when he's in another part of the house and I want to get to him.
I get along with other dogs and cats, and I like children. But like I said earlier, the proper introductions have to be made first. I would do well in an active household as I like to run and play. If you're looking for love, then look no further.
If you're interested in me and would like more information, please contact my foster dad at: Jim. You can also visit our website and sign-up to fill out an adoption application and learn more about our adoption process.
There is an adoption fee required, and whenever possible Eskie Rescuers United tries to adopt out its dogs locally (or at least to adopters in adjoining states to where I'm being fostered). Please note that ERU processes LOCAL adoption applications before considering those from out of state. I'm in Martinsburg, PA with my foster Dad, Jim.
To get me to you, we can do what's called an "Eskie Railroad," which is a group of volunteer drivers who will each drive a certain portion of the transport. (We always ask that you, as the adopter, help out by taking the final leg.)
If I'm not local to you, as explained above, and you really have your heart set on me, you may have to make special arrangements so ERU can get me to you safely (for example, flying me to you at your own expense, or paying a transport group to drive me to you). Also, please be aware that Eskie Rescuers United will not adopt out its dogs as outdoor dogs.
Thank you and WOOF!
