Success Stories > Wilbur

You may remember me as “Connor,” but my mama and daddy renamed me “Wilbur” because of my curly tail and my tendency to snort like the pig in Charlotte’s Web. I was adopted on June 10, 2006 and by June 12th, I was able to ‘sit’ on command. My mama and daddy were so surprised with how quickly I learn! The many tricks I now know include: sit, stay, lie down, shake, come, hold hands, hug, roll over, turn around, dry off, bow, crawl and I even play dead if you make shooting noises. I also like to play ‘hide and seek,’ go for walks and my favorite thing to do is have family cuddle time on the bed. I’m also naturally good; I only chew on my toys, I never bark or steal things and I’m always full of kisses to hand out. I’m also very good with the little kids in my family. I often go to my grandma and grandpa’s house so I can run and play in their fenced-in back yard. When I’m there, I like to play with my ball and chew on sticks. I can even play a mean game of fetch. I also like to dig and dig in their super cool sandbox. Pretty soon, I’m going to have my very own back yard where I can run and play every day. I have lots of friends, too! I visit my other dog relatives quite often (mostly Golden Retrievers) as well as my two best friends who are Pugs. This year has been a very exciting one, for me as well as for my mama and daddy. My parents often say that they are so lucky to have me, but I think I’m the lucky one.

Thank you for helping me find my family.
