Mudd

Friends, we will begin with the full and honest disclosure that the author of this post is currently harboring a huge crush on Mudd. If this author were in the position to make Mudd a kept man, you all would be seeing hide nor hair of this dog as he would already be in his new home getting belly rubs by the fire. Alas, the dog-hating cat belonging to this post’s author has threatened legal action against her were she even to mention it, so sadly, only a crush it remains.

The GOOD news is one of you gets to have him instead. Where to even begin with this wonderful dog? 3 year old Mudd is a big boy but quite subdued; we’re pretty sure he’s part garden snail. This is lovely, because his bigness won’t pull your arm off or knock over small children, but is a soft expanse of living breathing body pillow. Lumbering along, Mudd sleepily wags his tail and accepts pets and kisses from all his admirers, which is inevitably everyone. He recently lost his family, who were heartbroken to give him up, when they had to move and couldn’t bring him along. Although we usually try to not project our feelings onto animals, when Mudd rests his head gently on your lap and looks up at you with those soulful eyes, as he likes to do, they betray a little sadness, one we ache to take away. His former family reports that he was gentle and sweet with with 8 cats, a Yorkie and the little girl in the home. Mudd was accustomed to a fair amount of space and definitely enjoys his outdoor time, so would be happiest in a home with some room to explore or at least a fenced in yard. This very special dog finds his way into the heart of everyone he meets, and although we love him so, we know he’ll be a lot happier when his new family comes along . If you need some big dog love in your life, we dare you to come meet Mudd and not to fall in love. Please share and help us find this big fella his new happily ever after!
