Pile of Pups!
Pope is a very lovely dog. He is not overly energetic or hyper for a young dog. He plays and is fun but settles easily. Pope is gentle and snuggly. He cuddles with me on the couch and he loves tummy rubs. He is smart and knows sit now. He loves treats and his "foodies".
Once a routine is set Pope does his 'doo-ties' outside. He is very consistent and knows the word potty.
If you are looking for an extremely sweet pal then do not hesitate to pick little PoPo! He's a little lover boy and will be your bestest friend for life!!!
Snuggled by my slippers. Check out his eyebrows!!! XX! 😘
Pope says... Valentine's Day is coming and I have lots of LOVE ❤️ to give away!

Pope's newest photo shoot! He has a serious look but he's really very sweet and cuddly. He's a fantabulous boy!!! :)
If you do not apply for my PoPo I won't be sad! I have him allll 'fixed up' now! So he can stay put! Hee hee! Yup, I'm totally being selfish! He may not be a poodle or doodle or shihtzu or any of those ever so popular breeds... he's just a little mixed breed terrier. To me he's the BEST! He can stay here as loooong as he likes! ❤️
Looking good little guy!!! XXOO

He's been here 3 weeks. We are in love!❤ Pope is easy to train. He is potty trained at our house but may need a refresher at his new home. After all he's only a puppy. He loves my dogs. Pope walks easily on leash and rides quietly in the car. He's not very barky except when I greet him when I get home from work or come downstairs in the morning. He is just so happy to see me!!! His bark is loud! His tail wags like the wings of a humming bird. So fast!!! He loves us and loves people!
To adopt Pope just fill out an app!
He's verrrrry loving!!!

Licking the water off his paws!
Pope was just awesome in the tub and he now smells delicious and his fur is so soft n fluffy!!!
So we have an ice day today! Nothing better than snuggling on a comfy big bed when it's too slippery to play outside!!!

So proud of my Packer Backer Boy!!! He has been here 2 weeks, he was kept outside in a heated garage before coming to my house, and has accomplished:
Going up and down stairs.
Bravely going in and out of doors.
98% stopped submissive piddling
90% potty trained (he will go days with no accidents)
Learning hand touch.
Walks beautifully on a leash.
Rides calmly in a car.
Comes to his name when called.
Jumps up on couch and snuggles.
Can be 90% trusted to not chew up my stuff (he knows his toys--but still he is a pup so stuff happens!)
Wears dog coats and boots without fussing!
Walks around so friendly like a 'big boy' when visiting Pet Stores!
NICE JOB, PoPo!!!
What he is still working on?
Not climbing onto the dishwasher to lick
dirty plates (my little dog taught him this!)
Not waking up at 3:30am for unknown reasons. 😴
Eating an occasional frozen dog turd (my big dog taught him this!)💩🤢
Dragging an article of dirty laundry to his toy collection. 👚👕👖
Begging for my food with the stare. 👀
Tripping when he climbs stairs #shortlegproblems🐾
Potty training (he is a puppy-- but with frequent outings he is doing GREAT!)😊
That's Pope... pretty AWESOME don't ya think?!?

Cleaning upstairs. My supervisors are on duty!!! Pope does not mind the vacuum. He had no reaction to it whatsoever. He is wearing his belly band because it's all carpet up here. I have lots of stairs to go down so it's a long way down to the back door.

He is a great walker! Just a lovely boy!!

"Squeak squeak squeak!!!
I am hoping you notice how amazing he is in the store. Calm and quiet. Just sniffing around. He greeted EVERYONE with a tail wag!!!
We actually ended up getting this zippered coat instead A better fit than the one in the video. A Martha Stewart size medium. I love the Buffalo Check on Pope. 👍🏻 I also recommend no Velcro on dog coats. Seems it wears out and catches their fur. The zipper will be awesome!!!
Staying snuggly outside! Modeling his #checkeredcoat #couldntbecuter #luvhim
In the house...
Back to "his" big bed!!!
So, I've noticed that 'once in a while' Pope will submissively piddle if I lean over him to pick him up. Some pups do this. It is common and subsides as they mature and get more confident. DO NOT PUNISH if this happens. You will make it wayyyy worse! Google it! The best thing to do is be low key. Try and not do things to make him feel scared or overly excited. Definitely google how to handle it. Then before you know it he will stop! It's not a big deal if you don't make it one!!!

Took Pope for a drive. He passed! Certified in Driving 101!!! He's good to go and ready to hit the road with you!!!
I have talked about Pope's pen in my kitchen… Here it is...his puppy pen!
It works out really well, because he has a bed, his dish and toys… If I wanted to I could put puppy pads in there on the floor but he just wears a belly band in my house in case he has a potty accident. He has been doing awesome at going potty outside but once in a while there is a little boo-boo --mostly my fault because I don't watch closely enough. He has consistently gone poop outside after meals. He never marks in the house ...not ever... not once... nope nope nope!!! 👍🏻🐶💚
Pope's favorite spot is lounging on the big doggy bed! He's got his toys, his hoof to chew... ahhhh! #spoiled
This pic is soooo Popie! Mr Snuggle!!!

We spent some time outside and came in for a warm up!!! Pope had another great day while I was at work! I keep him in a dog play pen. I like it better than a crate because I just like my fosters to have room to stretch and play! It was all dry and nothing chewed up! He's a very easy puppy. I'd say the only thing he does do is bark if he can't get to me when I'm home. Like if I put him in the pen-- he may complain. He's fine when I leave but just likes to have free access when I'm home. It's fine with me because he's so good! So I always have him out with my dogs.
His LED collar from eBay just arrived! Now I won't lose view of him at night or early morning! #blackdogproblems
So this collar has been awesome! We call him The Glow Worm! It's like watching a video game with him racing around the yard at night in his green glow! 😂!!!
