If Heartland had a yearbook Blade would definitely win Best Smile!
Blade has this unique habit of showing all his teeth to show he's happy
and he can even do it with the command "Smile"! Some might mistake
this for a sign of aggression but some dogs do smile, and Blade is one
of them! It's the cutest thing ever. Blade is approximately 6 years old
and weighs right around 40 pounds. Blade came to Heartland all the
way from Miami and he certainly had a tough life before we got him.
Blade has scars on his side and stomach, and he also does not like to
be touched around the neck or back end if he does not know you.
Blade does not like most other dogs and will attempt to pull towards
them on walks, but with his new harness on he is very responsive to
his walker's direction. Other than that Blade is very well leash-
trained, and knows his commands well. He's very treat motivated
which makes him even easier to train! When Blade accepts you into
his heart all he wants is to smile for you, give kisses, and try to sit on
your lap. Because Blade has been mistreated in the past, he needs an
owner who will understand his issues and give him time to adjust.
Please open your heart to this deserving dog.
