They've been our species' right hand animal for 30,000 years and they're so happy that you are in their lives. If you've chosen to be some dog's life companion share them with the rest of us. This is Cerberus, he was found in the woods in Pennsylvania. His thumbs were removed and he has a serial number on his ear. That shows he was a well treated stud for a reputable breeder (they take the thumbs off the males to protect the female during breeding.) He also was a daddy dog and stayed with the puppies I think because now he spends time with my neighbor's tiny dogs and he treats them like puppies and he loves playing with them and encouraging them. I think that maybe after he got too old to breed they tried to make him a hunting dog. He's not very smart so he probably got distracted and lost. He was about five, then I adopted him. Then he lived with me for a year in New York alone, then we moved here about three years ago. I have a friend who brings him over while I'm at work where he plays with his two best friends. Two girl chihuahua who love playing with him. He outweighs them by thirty pounds, but he's very careful and he's always happy. Because he's been getting older, recently I've been letting him sleep in the bed with me. He watches over his master while I sleep, then every morning he gets to go on an adventure with master and help me check the perimeter of our territory by peeing on everything.
