Matt ~ in Southern California

Looking for a Home

I'm Matt and I'm a fine, big happy boy! When Silky Rescue found me in a shelter, I had a nice full coat, but I was badly matted. Along with getting neutered, the shelter also shaved me down to the skin, so I am not looking my best right now. Foster Mom says I look silly, but I'm eating well and I grew enough hair to cover my skin, so there!

I like all people and all dogs. I will sit on your lap for hours or I will retrieve tennis balls for you or play tug with a toy. I will like spending my time with you. If I am left alone, I probably will bark, but Foster Mom has been teaching me "Quiet!" and "You stay there!" (Because I climb right out of my pen!) And she says I'm very smart and learn fast.

Matt I am about 5 years old and I would weigh about 13 pounds at my ideal weight. I have had my teeth cleaned, had all my shots, and a microchip. I am potty trained, but I really need a doggy door so I can go out when I feel the need. I can walk on a leash, come when called, and I can cuddle with you, too. I am also a good kisser.

Matt's new family will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for him. Preference will be given to local applicants. If you are interested in Matt, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email us at and let us know you are interested in Matt (please include your name and state so we can find your application in our files).
