Meet Habibi! His name means “my love” and how appropriate for a fellow who is ready for a lifelong commitment. Habibi was adopted last in January of 2020. Through no fault of his own, Habibi is once again in need of an adoptive home. This time, Habibi deserves a true forever home. Let’s help him find it!
Habibi is guessed to be between 8 and 9 years old. His breed mix appears to be boston terrier and bulldog mix. Whatever the mix is, it sure is a handsome one, isn’t it? Habibi weighs 45 pounds. He’s a cuddler and a crooner when his owner plays the harmonica!
Since being adopted a little over 2 years ago, Habibi has lived life as an only animal. We are told when his adopters met him at the shelter, he was surrounded by other dogs and he didn’t seem to care. Since then he only exhibits excitement when he sees other animals. This leads us to believe with proper introductions, Habibi could possibly live with another dog. Potential adopters would need to work with his current owners on a meet and greet in a neutral location and then work on proper introductions to make Habibi’s integration into his new home successful. Who knows? Perhaps this dear boy has lived with other dogs in the past and his excitement over seeing other dogs is just that-happy to see his kind?!
While Habibi has been observed around kids, they have been children old enough to know to be gentle and respectful of dogs. We are told Habibi LOVES people. He is very happy for time to cuddle in bed with his humans before going to his crate for the night but the door is left open for him.
Habibi goes for multiple short walks a day, appreciating any “bonus” walks that are longer. He has been known to pull on leash but will listen to the command “back” and wait for his owner to catch up to him. Habibi sounds like a very smart boy who has a lot to give and really wants to please his people.
Described as being not much of a barker, Habibi will bark when he sees other dogs and animals. He has been fine to stay alone for quite awhile inside the house without incident when his people leave the house. He can manage stairs. Habibi has been taking a medication (Apoquel) for what is described as “nervous itching”. His adopters should be able to provide him with vet care and continuation of this medication if needed as prescribed by a veterinarian.
Habibi is located in Bellingham, WA. He is waiting for his forever family! If you are ready to make that commitment, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for contact information.
This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
