Mellow loves pets and booty scratches.
Meet our friend Mellow from On A Mission KC! On a Mission KC saved this sweet boy from being euthanized at the Wichita shelter and we simply cannot believe this world came close to not having this amazing guy in it. Mellow absolutely loves his human friends and is quick to warm up to them. He loves being pet and particularly loves butt scratches. He may even try to sneak in a kiss or two. He just wants to be near you and spend time with you, and we think he would like to audition to be a lap dog. He doesn’t understand that at approximately 70 lbs, he may be too big for that to comfortably happen, and we simply don’t have the heart to tell him.
Mellow truly lights up when he sees his human friends. His butt wiggle and fast wagging tail are precious. And need we even get started on that speckled nose? He has the biggest, cutest noggin’ and will look you right in the eyes as he “asks” (maybe pleads) nicely for treats. Although he has discovered he likes chicken and cheese quite a bit, he also wants everyone to know he isn’t picky when it comes to food.
Mellow is a perfect boy in his room. Unlike some of his canine neighbors, he is super quiet, patiently waiting for his turns to run in the yard, where he loves to play with toys and roll in the grass. Mellow appreciates the sound of a water bottle crinkling, but even better than playing with a water bottle is playing with water from a hose! Although he also loves playing ball, we do not believe a position as goalie is in his future.
We don’t know much about Mellow’s past other than someone cropped his ears super short, and he was sad and broken in the shelter before his ride to freedom. But now he’s a happy, bouncy, silly boy who will be certain to bring a constant smile to your face. We think he is beautiful, and if there was a contest in his class, he’d likely win best smile.
Mellow may be best as the only pet in the home, but time will tell. Now that he’s had some time to decompress, we are working with him on his dog reactivity, and true to form, Mellow is showing great strides.
Want to bring this fantastic boy home with you? Call/text The Pet Connection at 913-671-7387 to inquire about Mellow. Mellow is in the Kansas City metro, but transport is available to the right home.
