My name is Sylvester. Some say I look like an old man. They’re probably right. I’m not a cute, fluffy thing with an adorable face. I probably never was.
Fact is, it’s been going on three years I’ve been here at the shelter. They’re very good to me…I get two squares a day, a soft bed, quality playtime, walks to the park…but I want more. I want a home, a place to call my own with my own family – who loves me and I can love them back.
I come from a long line of energetic, intelligent and playful min pins. "King of the Toys": that’s what they call us. We make great watchdogs and companions and take our jobs seriously.
I’m a good boy. My Mama raised me right. I’m friendly, great on walks, and get along well with my friends, both human and canine. I’m known here for my famous belly crawl on the grass and don’t mind showing off a bit for a treat. I may not be pretty, but I’m no fool!
These famous old man faces have millions of adoring fans…
…all I need is one.
