Cheese puffs are a puffed corn snack, coated with a mixture of cheese or cheese-flavored powders. They may be ball-shaped, curly, straight, or irregularly shaped.
This sweetheart was found with a bucket of "Cheese Puffs" stuck on the head & taken to the pound. He immediately charmed the staff & was selected for our program. Note that Cheese's previous owner was localized but didn't want him back after finding out he had to be neutered per Kansas City law. His loss, our gain! This little guy is a TREASURE!
Other than intestinal parasites when he came to us and a dull coat, Cheese Puff appears healthy. He has been treated and is currently regaining his strength and energy.
Even if you can’t adopt this sweetheart, you can still help by donating for their care.
Very cute. Well proportioned. A little smaller than average for a male but not by much. He was dirty and smelly when he arrived but is already looking much better now. His coat is becoming whiter with nice golden patches. His ears must have been cropped by a veterinarian who did a more typical Boxer crop instead of APBT, but it suits him.
Living-it-up at MPR shelter but scheduled to move to a foster home at the end of December. Until then, he's being a great little guest who has quickly climbed at the top of the list of shelter's favorites amongst the volunteers.
The word "sweetheart" must have been invented for him. What a sweetie-pie! Gentle and docile, low energy but eager to fit in. Someone might have had a heavy hand on him before and he's a little sensitive but slowly regaining confidence. We will post more info about him once we know him better.
Behavior with people:
Cheese Puff has been nothing but sweet, loving and delightful with everyone he meets. It's impossible to resist his soft eyes and doting smile. He is especially fond of women but has been super sweet with men as well. Not a mean bone in this little guy.
Behavior with children:
Unknown but we would prefer a home with adults only, or older, gentle and respectful kids. Not because we are worried he could hurt the kids, but because he has a sensitive heart and needs compassion and tender care. Toddlers dont understand how to behave appropriately around timid dogs and we dont want to set him back. He's too sweet and can easily feel overwhelmed.
Behavior with other dogs:
He hasn't been with other dogs since being with us but we will have info soon as he is set to be fostered in a home with an adult female Pit Bull. We were told that while at the pound, he did fine with females but wasn't fond of other male dogs.
Behavior with other animals:
Info coming soon
His tenderheart is for sure his best attribute. In addition, Cheese Puff is very easy to handle and super eager to please... And he's gorgeous! What more can you ask?
