“My name is Mr. Big because of my personality. I get along great with everyone – dogs and cats equally. Our cat continues to be quite surprised that I just walk right on by him even though I do try to get into his food. I am a 13 year old miniature poodle, but don’t call me an old guy. I am an older guy with lots of pep in my step and able to get around very well.
“It appears that I didn’t have much experience with car rides or walks but I am learning and now walk with a happy puppy trot. You CAN teach an old(er) dog new tricks!! I don’t have a preference between men, women, or children – I only care who is in the kitchen so that I can help clean up. I am very food focused which could be why I am a bit overweight. I am 13 pounds but the doctor says I should be closer to 11. My walks and eating better are helping me. I am now eating my fruits and veggies (carrots, green beans, and broccoli) as a reward.
“I do have to go outside quite often and my foster mom is working with the doctors to determine why. We think it might be Cushing’s disease which means that I have to go outside quite often but that can be controlled with a daily pill. Old Dog Haven makes sure that I get the very best medical care!
I am also learning how to use a doggie door. I am very courteous and need to be invited to come with you onto furniture, downstairs, outside, or out to the car.
“I am a great little guy with a huge personality who is very mellow and easy going.”
