Pirate is a truly unique spirit! His life experiences have created a one of a kind dog you will never forget, and while he sometimes does things differently, he always does them with flair.  This happy little guy is convinced that he’s really a big guy, and we don’t have the heart to tell him anything different, especially when he throws us his over the shoulder ‘I’m too sexy’ glance.  When not showing off his playboy good looks, Pirate enjoys the simple things in life like burrowing in blankets, ear rubs and peanut butter. Pirate has lived in several homes and has done great with all the dogs he has met, although sometimes he will try to shadow box with his canine companions, so be prepared for some shenanigans. He also does well with cats, although when he is feeling brave he will try to play. Pirate is comfortable in his crate and even rides well in the car when crated, the crate is a happy place for him. The couch is also a happy place and he really enjoys snuggling once he gets to know you. Be prepared though – once he loves you he will follow you everywhere and steal your body heat.  He also steals the covers!  Pirate has high blood pressure which is under control, but some early health complications have left him with some neurological quirks and limited vision in one eye – not that he realizes that, he embraces his differences.  For example, how many dogs have you met that will go through doorways on his front legs only?  We are betting Pirate is the only one!  Pirate’s strength comes from his joyful love of people, however he is best suited for an adult only home, or a home that has children 14 and up, give or take.  Because of his neurological quirks Pirate requires a fenced in yard, but honestly Pirate does best with a yard anyway where he can burn off all his energy and get frequent potty breaks as he has trouble holding it for long periods of time – plus he is totally adorable when he gets the zoomies!
