Bow Wow, that is “hi there” in dog. The humans call me Seabiscuit, but in my language I am called “Woof.” I have been told that humans hear this and don’t realize that it is pronounced differently to each dog. I’m a 7-year-old (that is 21 in human years), short hair German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd mix male. As you can see, my coloring is a red, chestnut, and orangish mix, we call that “arf arf.”

Yes, I’m a large dog, but I’ve been described by many people that have met me as friendly, affectionate, gentle, quiet, dignified, athletic, and playful. I weigh 95 pounds. I’m up to date on my vaccinations (we call that “ruff”), I’ve been neutered, and more importantly, I’m a cancer SURVIVER!

Did you know that I’m kind of famous on social media? Well, you see, for about a week I was running around Carriage Crossing and a lot of people saw me. Then a lot of kind people tried to catch me so I wouldn’t get hit by a car. When they were chasing me, I thought they were playing with me, I ran and ran and ran. Apparently, I was so fast and elusive, that everybody decided my name should be Seabiscuit. You know, after the famous race horse. They posted about me all over Collierville groups asking if anyone had lost me, but no one stepped up to claim me. That is the part that I don’t understand, because I’m a chill, calm teddy bear of a guy.

I’ll tell you that I’m glad that these wonderful people finally won the game of chase, because now I’m safe at the Collierville Animal Shelter. I have a nice place to rest my head and I’m feed very well. And despite my playful game of chase on Carriage Crossing, I walk easily on the leash and go into a natural “heel” walking style. When I go on walks with the humans, and they stop, I melt into their side and just hope that they or anybody walking by will reach down and pet me. My friends at the shelter say that I’m what you call “an old soul” and a gentle giant. One human even said, “I got to walk this big teddy bear and he captured my heart! He’s the kind of dog you keep thinking about when you’re not with him!”

You would think that this is all that I have to tell you about, but no there is more! There is so much going on I thought I would write a journal about my adventures. So here we go….

Today something interesting happened. Three female humans from a place called Midnight Star came by to start taking pictures of all my Shelter animal friends for their website, to help us all get adopted. Apparently, they decided to start by taking pictures of us dogs. I was the first one to get my picture taken. They were so nice, but I wasn’t really interested in my picture being taken. The love and attention were just fine with me, but they took my picture anyway. After my photoshoot, I was taken back so that another dog could get their picture taken. I hope they like the camera more than I did.

You know what, these humans at the shelter are so nice. They take me out for walks and oh the play yard, I LOVE THE PLAY YARD!!!!!! I’m not much of a talker, but if I were I’d tell them thank you for all that you have done for me and my animal friends. I know I’m safe here; I just wish I could find my furever home! I want my own humans so much! I’d be so good for any type of family. I hope people are being told that I LOVE it when they pet me and I’m so gentle with the little humans.

Two of the female humans from Midnight Star came to get me today so I could have an outing. They told everybody that they were taking me out to introduce me to more humans, to spoil me, and hopefully get humans interested in adopting me. Yes, they took pictures of me again. Those humans like to take pictures. Oh well, I guess it’s ok. Humans can be weird sometimes. Anyway, here is a picture that was taken of me on the car ride back to their Studio.
