I was born in July 2008 and I'm a cross-breed. No-one really knows my parentage but people tend to think I have a bit of black Labrador, a bit of collie, a bit of whippet or a bit of staffie. One of my proudest moments was when a passer-by mistook me for a Manchester terrier; although I like being a mutt I do love Manchester which is my home town. In fact I was adopted from Manchester Dogs' Home in December 2008 when I was four months old and quite a bit thinner than I am now.
I live in Cheshire and I commute into Manchester city centre four or five days a week with my owners who run a PR agency. I usually commute by car, with my comfy dog bed in the back seat, but sometimes by train where I get fussed by the nice ticket inspector. At work I like to just hang out getting stroked by staff and clients, and barking at delivery men when I get half a chance. At home I like going for long walks, which is a chance to socialize with all sorts of dogs. I'm no snob and I'm happy to socialize with pedigree breeds if I have to.
Sometimes I get taken to the seaside, which I love. I like the water, although I haven't swum just yet. I also get taken hill-walking which is brill, although those pesky sheep are everywhere.
My worst habit is scavenging and I've been called 'clingy', but I make up for all that by having otherwise exemplary behaviour. I love life and I love being a dog.
My main message to the wider world is that rescue dogs give a lot of love back!
