I’m Carter, and as of March 2023, I have spent over a year at the shelter with my friends at the SPCA Eastern Shore. It seems that in that year I have mostly been overlooked in the kennel. I’ve only had one meet and greet visit, and the senior female dog in that family decided she didn’t like me, so I didn’t get that chance to become part of a family.
I came to the SPCA Eastern Shore Regional Animal Control facility in April of 2022 when a nice lady found me running around and playing behind the Eastern Shore Community College. She put me in her car and drove me to this really neat building they called “Tractor Supply,” where I had a nice bath that I took like a champ. I was then taken to the Animal Control building, but my owner never came forward, so I was transferred to SPCA Eastern Shore in March of 2022.
I’m getting close to 3 years old but am still very much a young handsome guy. In the year that I have been here my happy-go-lucky attitude has never wavered. Even though another dog hurt me really bad once, I am very forgiving and believe there still may be another dog out there I can get along with. I seemed to mostly ignore cats when I was cat tested some months ago, although whether I’d get along in a home with cats is not certain. When it comes to people, I do not know a stranger. I seem to want attention and affection from them all.
I hear them say the SPCA Eastern Shore is a no kill shelter, whatever that means. Anyway, they say I have a home with them as long as I need one. Yet, I would love to see beyond the kennel walls and take nice long walks with people of my own. Maybe perhaps even sit next to them while they’re watching TV, although I might just turn my head back and forth in confusion since I don’t even know what a TV is. I have a lot to learn, and I am eager to learn it. I am fairly clean in my kennel and love toys and blankets.
I am a very reliable guy, and you can always count on me to be very sweet.
