I’ll be honest. The first time I met Godfrey, he made me grumpy because he had accidentally punched me in the mouth with his head when I was putting on his harness. He is, after all, an energetic young dog, being a pointer/boxer mix, about a year old, and he was probably bred to run around quite a bit and taken for very long walks, not occasionally, but everyday.
Then Godfrey sat and looked at me.
He sat some more and kept looking at me like that:
Oh dear. How could you not forgive a dog with a look like that? I gave Godfrey a treat, petted him (which he loved), and told him he was a very good boy and that I was sorry he hadn’t been out earlier. Afterwards, we walked nicely, though I think Godfrey would really shine as a running partner (he really loves to run though he is also working on his self control).
Godfrey also loves to play and would love to have a dedicated canine or human partner to match his energy level. He’s extremely social and would love to go to dog park and then curl up for a long nap until the next day’s adventures.
