Hello, my name is Pete. I am a handsome buff and white Cocker Spaniel roughly 8 years old. I have heard through the grapevine that you are looking for a House Dog. In the present economic climate, I realize that there are many dogs competing for this role, however I believe myself to be the perfect candidate to fill your existing vacancy. In fact, to become your House Dog would simply be my dream job. I have all the requisite skills required to perform the tasks required of a House Dog and am prepared to do so beautifully. I will greet you at the door, alert you to the presence of strangers, guard you with my life, and generally provide you with much love, companionship and affection. I have vast experience as a House Dog, in fact for the past 8 years it has been my area of focus. Sadly, my excellent skills went rather unappreciated in my last position, with the result that I ended up a neglected stray. It's not that I did a bad job, rather a House Dog was simply no longer valued in that particular home. I nevertheless come with excellent references, as Abandoned Angels is prepared to vouch for my fine character. Prior to coming into rescue I was also a brief resident at Animal Care and Control of NYC, who have rather nice things to say about me too. I have been neutered, microchipped, am current on all shots, have tested negative for heartworm, and am shortly scheduled for a dental. As I wish to put my best foot forward, I will be professionally groomed before adoption, and will go home with a new leash and collar. A dog's condition is of course is a reflection of his household, so you can be sure that I will always want to look my best for you. If you would be interested to interview me for the position of your new House Dog, please email and request an application. I can assure you that I am very well qualified and extremely eager to continue my career with you. In fact, it is my utmost desire to retire at your feet. Yours truly, Pete.
