About Me

Hi! I'm Paddington. And if you've been thinking, “man, that's a big dog” then you'd be right! I'm a big boy with a big heart, and a big ol' tongue for licking your face when I'm on your lap. My foster family has some really nice thing to say about me: “Paddington is lovable, and bonds very quickly with humans. He is a large dog but thinks he is a lapdog. He loves head rubs, belly rubs, and cuddling with his humans. He really loves laying next to us on the couch and knows which furniture he is permitted on, and which he isn't. He is very smart and has learned a few words since he has been here, particularly the words “liverwurst” and “spam”! He loves playing, especially catch. We often play in the yard, but if it's too hot, we have actually played catch in the house (please don't tell our sons that, since they were never permitted to do that)!” I'm blushing reading all these nice things they said about me!

I do have one thing I'm working on – my leash manners! Since I'm such a big boy (and I sometimes get a little dramatic when I see other dogs) some people think I'm a little hard to take on walks. But to be honest, I don't even like walks that much – what I REALLY love is laying in the sun in a big backyard, rolling in the grass, telling off the. squirrels, and playing with my toys. Can't you just imagine us together, basking in the sun with you giving me scratches behind my ears?
