This guy’s morning walks go something like this:
“Ok, I walked a few feet. Now back to the house for BREAKFAST!”
“Ok, ok, I peed. Now BREAKFAST?”
“Fine. I walked a little more. Now can I please have BREAKFAST?!!!! What about SECOND BREAKFAST???”
So his foster mom made up a little song that she sings to him while he walks: “Because he’s all about that breakfast, ‘bout that breakfast, ‘bout that breakfast…,” and he wiggles his butt to the beat while he walks.
It’s freakin’ adorable. As is Mr. Breakfast.
He’s one of those dogs that’ll make you giggle with every expression on his hippo head. And as his foster mom will tell you, he’s one of her favorite dogs of all time (one of ours too!). You can see his doggy soul through his eyes – every thought he has comes through loud and clear, especially when he’s thinking about breakfast.
This big, beefy dude is built like a linebacker – low slung, stubby, and a solid 80 pound 5 year old. And he’s a teddy bear – easy going, well behaved, and sweet as pancakes. That said, he’s sensitive to small children and a little too interested in cats (BREAKFAST?), so we’re looking for an adult feline-free home with people who understand how to be the leader he needs to be his happiest self.
Now – Mr. Breakfast has a super power.
He’s one of the few dogs who knows sign language. Thanks to a hack job on his poor ears resulting in bilateral TECA (total ear canal ablation) surgery, he’s officially deaf. It doesn’t slow him down a bit – he’s a wonderful communicator!
Mr. B gets along well with dogs of all sizes and loves playtime with his pals (which is the funniest thing to watch – he’s like a hoppy potamus!). He loves belly rubs, is super loyal, and as you might imagine – when you take him on (short) walks, he’s a people magnet. He loves the attention, almost as much as breakfast, and his tail wags his whole body.
We think he’ll do best with a forever family with an above average understanding of dogs; people who live a leadership lifestyle and can provide boundaries for the hippo for life. A well matched, calm companion dog or a few might be nice, but not necessary for this people lover. Mr. B does enjoy a yard and wouldn’t mind having his own outdoor space in his forever home.
