This is Raven, who is very good at making those puppy eyes at you. In reality, she’s a smallish pit/staffie terrier mix who’s 1-1 1/2 years old, but the truth is she’s made out of marshmallow fluff and sugar.
This was the 4th time she jumped into my lap. Well, not exactly jumped- more like “placed her upper body on my lap and scooted her butt up so that she was mostly on my lap.” Nevertheless- Raven is a serious snuggler. She and I enjoyed many, many sessions of snuggling where I 1) just hugged her 2) rubbed her neck and chest 3) rubbed her belly 4) rubbed her face 5) what else did I not rub?
She was clearly meant to be a sofa buddy.
Raven really loves to be held. I think she feels more secure that way.
We did not get a chance to test her ball-playing skills, but it’s been told that she likes to chase a ball. I bet she’d love playing fetch if it meant leaping into your arms at the end.
Raven is also food-motivated, and her sits are very, very earnest.
And to be honest, her face is very hard to say no to.
But she can be goofy too. And she does get along with other dogs, so she would make a nice second dog, if you don’t mind having a pile of dogs on top of your lap…
