Hiya friends! My name is Larry I can’t believe I’m writing to you today; it’s like a dream come true! I’ve always wanted to introduce myself to all you wonderful people out there and get to know you a little better, and now’s my chance! How are you? Do you like squeaky toys? Eaten any good food recently? Are you a professional belly-rubber? Do you like to go on walks or long car rides or trips to the beach? Are you looking for a new canine companion to accompany you on these said adventures? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, we might be a perfect fit!

However, I’m getting ahead of myself here. My friends always tell me to slow down and think through what I’m saying before I say it and now I see where they’re coming from. I just get so excited, you know? Anyway, as you might have guessed, I’m up for adoption here at Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk and can’t wait to find my happy, new home! It’s so exciting to think my perfect people are out there somewhere just waiting to come and find me and I’m just sitting here all wiggly and waggy waiting for that to happen. I know it will eventually, I just can’t stop thinking about all the fun we’re going to have together! As I mentioned above, I love to go hiking and walking and running on the beach, as well as munching on some good food and getting my belly rubbed. However, my absolute favorite thing in the whole world is squeaky toys! Well, not just squeaky toys but, toys in general. I love big toys and small toys, stuffies that squeak and balls that bounce. I love tug ropes and rubber kongs, as well as blankets and pillows and beds. I’ve never met a toy I didn’t like and, odds are, I’ll have a toy in my mouth when you come to see me. Just look for the big black dog with the stuffed animal in his mouth!

I hope you like toys as much as I do because if we’re a good fit, then our house will be filled with them. Doesn’t that sound fun?! And speaking of being a good fit, I have to be honest with you: I like being the center of attention. I have lived with other dogs in the past but, honestly, they just steal my spotlight! I want to be your one and only please. And that goes for those pesky cats as well. I just can’t help myself when I’m around them… I need to chase! But at the end of the day, doesn’t just the two of us sound nice? Or perhaps three? Or four? When it comes to people, the more the merrier I always say! If you have a big family with lots of kids and cousins and grandparents around, that’s cool with me! Or maybe it’s just you living in that little cottage in the woods… that’s fine too! As long as I get to spend time with my new family, no matter how big or small, I’ll be happy. I just want a home to call my own with plenty of love, laughter and, of course, squeaky toys.
