Marty, now Wiley #2941
Here are Wiley’s favorite things about his new home:
— Binging on Netflix: he gets to cuddle on the couch and enjoy spilled popcorn.
— Playing with his new 28-year old brother, aka, his “litter mate”.
— Romping in the backyard: he keeps the squirrels and birds in line while we garden.
— Walking in the neighborhood: he likes meeting the friendly dogs and ignores the unfriendly ones.
— Brushing up on his skills at an Oregon Humane Society “Manners” class.
I can’t actually think of anything Wiley doesn’t like about his new home. He’s been a wonderful addition to our family. Many thanks to his wonderful foster parents and all the Golden Bond volunteers who helped in his adoption.
My name is Marty-Wiley (#2941). I am a golden/border collie cross. I originally came from South Korea in February 2018. I was treated for heartworm and skin issues, fully recovered, then was adopted by a couple in Bend, where I lived happily for six months. Sadly for all of us, my family found themselves in a position where they had to return me because their son and grandson were coming to live with them. Even though I did fine when the grandson visited during the summer, lately I had to nip at him because, truth be told, I’m Jealous of him.
Normally, I am a sweet, friendly dog, active with definite border collie traits. I do well living in a home but do need good exercise and stimulation. I am very good with other dogs, and walk well on a leash. I might not be good with cats as I love to chase squirrels. I’m calm and quiet in the house (like to watch out the window). Outside I he love to run and play! I obviously should be in a home with no kids (or much older kids, 16+). I’m healthy, all up-to-date on vaccinations, and ready to find my forever home.
NOTE FROM MARTY/WILEY’S FOSTER: Wiley Coyote is an extremely intelligent dog. He has a lot of energy to go along with those smarts. He is also very affectionate. He definitely needs to be with someone who has the time and desire to hold and snuggle with him as he really wants to be loved. And as with the Border Collie breed, he needs to keep busy and have a “job.”
Marty Wiley was adopted on March 24, 2019
