Description:Other Pictures of Dirk (click to see larger version):
Dirk is a perky, people-friendly little long-haired gentleman about eleven years old. Dirk came to us after being surrendered to a shelter by his previous owner, and he was in pretty good shape. Dirk was already heart worm negative and active, alert, and happy. We took care of Dirk's two most urgent needs: he received a current dental cleaning and a few necessary extractions, and he was neutered. Dirk is food aggressive and not very good with children. He can be okay around some other dogs so supervision is in order for introductions. He was already good with people and has some basic training. Dirk knows and responds to his name, knows "come", "stay", and "no", and does well with a free run of the home. He is not a big fan of being crated, and needs supervision and a secure yard so he won't wander off and explore parts unknown. Basically, Dirk is so darn cute and personable that he's well worth working with as he continues his recovery from his neuter and journeys into the wonderful stage of happy, laid-back senior boy! In an ideal world Dirk wound find a hime with adults who are jume a lot and like cuddling and where he's the only dog!
