The Boyfriend Dog
The Boyfriend Dog is full of endless affection & humor. Always up on you and loving toward the human pack members as well as the other dogs. He always wants everything to be okay, very happy and funny and sometimes appears overly sensitive. If there is an inter-pack fight (human or canine), this dog will be the one in the corner shaking. If you are upset, he’s the dog to come throw his arms around you & give you a great big hug regardless of whether you asked for one or not. He is very aware of the pack dynamics and very content with an owner who shows leadership as well as compassion and caters to his incredibly brilliant participation in training. This dog may not “require” it, but given the opportunity, will stun you with his brilliance and enthusiasm for education!
The Red-Headed Step Child
This is the dog that was already there when you got into your dog-owning relationship with someone else. It is likely that this dog annoys the sh*t out of you on some fronts & melts your heart on others! This dog may have an incredible relationship with a resident dog that makes it impossible for you to be completely annoyed. Usually very sweet & a people-pleaser, would have been well trained had they got their sh*t in line before you came along. “Handsome,” “gorgeous” and “beautiful” are common words associated with the Red-Headed Step Child, as at times, this can appear to be their most redeeming quality. A “naughty,” not “bad” dog who, despite everything, will steal your heart.
Mr. President exudes a natural quality that indicates “I am the man.” They give off an heir of confidences that screams “I got this.” Other dogs in the household are naturally attracted to the security in this and seem to give respect to the position regardless of their individual history, whether or not it includes “dog-aggression.” Mr. President is very happy & adapted to his role, calm & content, perfectly willing to correct other dogs, reward them with peace or submission, and selective in his outward affections. Mr. President loves to work; needs a job to do to be satisfied in life & excels across multiple sports & activities.
The Buddy Dog
The Buddy Dog is a big goof, a companion in the truest sense of the word! The Buddy Dog is completely innocent in his objectives, and can sometimes get himself into trouble because of that quality. Read: a dog that does not get it when another dog growls at him, regardless of how clear the other dog is in his intentions. “Whaddaya mean?” is frequently the expression on his face. Unusually simple in his motivations, food is usually high on his list. Very sensitive, this dog responds well to positive reinforcement and legitimately enjoys the company of all, human or canine.
There’s one in every pack: that dog that, regardless of your best intentions, requires constant vigilance and skilled handling for life. Usually has some nuisance-type problem you’ve been working on for years: maybe doesn’t like the mailman, other dogs, loud noises... Has allergies or some other ailment requiring constant attention. And yet... There's just something about him! Whether that quality is irresistible goofiness, thoughtful intelligence, that ability to just know what you need when you need it... This dog holds a special quality that could never be denied, and that celebration is what will always keep The Misfit in his home!
