Everyone loves potatoes..baked, mashed, roasted. You can't go wrong with a good potato…so let’s introduce SEPR Potato!
First, we want to be clear, SEPR Potato is not a block head type dog like the majority in our foster program. We are guessing maybe a hound mix etc. You see, like many of the southern dogs, Potato spent most of his life in a shelter. When transport decisions were made, there was no way we would let Potato sit any longer waiting for a human savior. 2 years of being confined behind bars is no place for any dog!
Potato is new to the program, a member of the ‘Snack Pack’ from Georgia, he is a good sized potato and is currently on a diet to slim down to more healthy and happy figure. Sitting idol for 2 years takes its toll on his little round belly and legs. A potato with some curves is coming your way soon!
Potato is adjusting to life outside the shelter quickly. Learning about all the luxuries and things we take for granted like beds, couches, and other places to cuddle up for a snooze, he wastes no time getting comfortable rolling on his back snoring in no time.
Potato also learning the work day routine making an excellent work from home coworker content to sleep the day away on a dog bed or entertain himself with some toys. Don’t worry though, he is also learning that just because we work from home doesn’t mean we don’t have to use a kennel. While he might protest being ‘left behind’ a bit, he is beginning to understand that his people will always come back for him.
Potato enjoys his toys like nylabones, tennis balls, and stuffed animals tossing them in the air playing catch with himself. When he isn’t playing with his toys he will be your not so little shadow following you around the house. Potato is currently participating in the most recent round of Train A Bull, perfecting his commands and working on ignoring distractions from small dogs to medical equipment. Of course he is making it look easy, catching on quickly…. It helps that he is very food motivated.
Potato is taking integration with the resident canine’s slow and steady, making sure to form a solid foundation first, but he has been all wiggle butt so far. Just like making a baked potato, it can take a little time but the results are worth it! At his long stay at the shelter he was always very canine friendly.
If your looking for an all around good "ol' boy" type of dog, Potato fits that bill. He has so much lost time to make up for and we cannot wait to see someone swoon over him as much as we do. Through so much isolation, all Potato still wants is love and adventure.
We know what kind of Potato is our favorite….what’s yours?
