Meet Torchy (Courtesy Post)
Three-year-old Torchy has touched his fosters' hearts with his sweet and silly ways. Once the 45-pound white beauty felt comfortable in their company, he opened his own heart, and now he LOVES licking them, cuddling and snuggling, and playing with them. He also loves engaging, often too exuberantly, with other dogs - he does best with a dog who isn't too submissive. Torchy enjoys going for walks, chewing on Nylabones and playing with soft, plushy toys, but what he loves most is his wobble Kong, giddily getting into boxing matches with it! Known to prance around the house and strut when he walks, he's equally famous for lying on his back with his legs in the air, as an open invitation for belly rubs, paw-lease. Motivated by love, toys and food (he's passionate about people food), highly intelligent and easy to teach, he knows "come", "sit", "down", "stay", "off", "no", "touch" and "leave it", accepts his favorite Charlie Bear biscuit treats gently and loves relaxing inside his crate with the door open. He's leash-trained and pretty much fully house-trained. Torchy has graduated from a 4-week board and training obedience program through American Canine Academy. They offer free lifetime training support to adopters. For Torchy to thrive, he requires a strong but loving "pack leader" to continue his training, and keep him mentally and physically satisfied fur-ever.
