Velcro has lived at Nashville Humane Association (NHA) for a couple of weeks. He was transported to NHA from an overcrowded shelter partner of ours. We don't know much about his past, but he's totally winning over the hearts of our dedicated Staff and Volunteers who have just fallen head over heels in love with this large, older, black, mix breed dog. Everyone just can't wait for Velcro to find the perfect (paw-fect?) #LoveHarder home he deserves. Thank you, Miranda Lambert's MuttNation, for giving Velcro this "check me out and adopt me" platform! Velcro totally plans to shine just as much as his beautiful black fur in the sun today.
Anyone out there reading this and falling in love with his pictures plus the Facebook Live with Wayne D Show on The Big 98... Please know that meeting Velcro in person is even better. Seriously. Everyone, just like Wayne & Tay, who meets Velcro pretty much says the same thing after their introduction: "HE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SWEET!" It's true. Velcro is amazing. He also lives up to his perfect name.
A little bit more about the happiest boy:
Velcro's large life loving personality fits his large size: He's a 4- and 1/2-year-old, Black Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd mix who weighs 63 pounds. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and is microchipped. Fun Fact: For a dog his size and strength, he walks amazingly well when on a leash.
Blake has the most expressive face, too. Not only does he look like he is always smiling -BUT- his ears also seem to have a mind of their own. Up, down, a little bit of both. One just never knows what ears you'll see on top of his head. Which, almost instantaneously, puts a smile on any hooman that is with him! Yup. His energy, looks, and outgoing/happy personality is totally infectious. He is an active boy who is always ready for an outside adventure and doggie play dates. Please note that he is selective with who he enjoys playing with. Since moving to NHA and having supervised play dates, he appears to play better with dogs his age rather than a pup still in that active-bouncy teenager phase. So, if you've got a dog looking for a BFF... Open Paw Invite to bring them in to meet Velcro! Velcro also has great inside potty manners, very smart, very silly, and when he sits for you, just get ready that his next "trick" is to jump up and lick you in the face! Because of this jumping up habit, and his size, we recommend a home with older children (not toddlers) may be the best for him.
Bottom Line: Velcro will fill your heart with so much love and laughter. He loves being outside and being active just as much as he loves being inside the home, right by your side, getting belly rubs and forehead kisses, and being repeatedly asked "Who's a good boy?" Trust us - He knows the answer is "ME!"
Who will be the lucky one to adopt Velcro?
We could go on and on about mister happy pants... a dog who is so easy to love but seems to be harder to get adopted because of his color and size. He deserves a Forever Home like all the pets do. Once you meet Velcro, you will see that no other dog will ever #LoveHarder when ADOPTED!
OK. Who wants to meet Velcro??? NHA is open for adoptions Tuesday through Sunday starting at 10am. Please come visit and ADOPT this wonderful adult dog. THANK YOU!
