Name:  Rye, like the Whiskey.

Age:  About 8 years old, but young at heart.

Breed:  Maybe a hound mix? I have a larger-breed body & shorter-breed legs, making me pretty much the perfect size (if I do say so myself).

Likes:  The ladies, toilet water, head scratches, and surprising people with kisses.

Dislikes:  Bad drivers, diets, and personal space.

Alter-Ego:  Scooby-Doo.

Best quality:  Personality. If I didn’t have a little salt & pepper happening on my face, you’d never guess that I’m no longer a young pup. I’m fun, playful, friendly, and incredibly affectionate. I’m happiest when I’m right by your side. Or on your side. Or on your head. I’m really not picky about how I get to cuddle you.

Worst quality:  Rebel status. Despite having short legs, I love showing my foster parents all of the things that I can reach. Coffee tables? No problem. Counters? Hold my beer. If I can smell it, I can reach it.

So what else do you need to know about me? I’ve had a rough go of it for the last few months. When the shelter got me, I was underweight and in need of a good dermatologist. Now I’m just looking to find a family who can give me the love and care that I missed out on.
