Morgan is a Weimaraner/lab mix who was rescued in 2009 from a dire situation where he was starved and significantly emaciated at 48 lbs. He couldn’t take in food or water, and my husband and I had to sign waivers when adopting him, as he was not expected to live. Morgan apparently found his forever home, because he is a very healthy 95 lb companion now.
He was named Morgan, as in the Welsh heritage that means he is a brave sailor being brave of heart – which he had to be to survive his difficulties. The name Morgan also comes with a very appropriate character definition, which is to be rebellious and adventurous. Whether sneaking into offices and scoping out trash cans for special treats like an apple core, or running into the woods when I’ve clearly told him not to (and I know he has really good hearing), somehow his big brown eyes and giant nightly hugs let him get away with this.
Morgan LOVES cardboard and is always on hand to help break down a cardboard box, or carry one around on his head, bouncing into walls as he tries to transport his prize. The only thing that might distract him from his cardboard is someone breaking open a banana – his absolute favorite treat (well, really, any food will do).
Morgan loves everyone, and I hope you have the chance to meet him to see that – of course you can REALLY win his heart with a dog treat, and he’ll remember you forever (just ask the UPS man)!
