This poodley dog is more like a bunny who barks but don't tell him that. Wouldn't want to give him a complex or anything. Not that there's anything wrong with being a bunny. Of course if he were a bunny, he'd be chubbier and warm enough outside that I wouldn't have to put a fake woolly coat on him to take him for a walk.
This is totally a guy thing but walking a cutesy little dog in a precious little coat makes most guys feel uncomfortable, especially in a crowd of rowdy hockey fans who just happened to be in the vicinity, and so to compensate I had to talk louder, and in a deeper voice, about manly things like fixing cars and chopping wood. Err, perhaps I'm the one with a complex.
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
