Dog: Huxley is a four year old rescue from Precious Pups Rescue on Long Island. His humans think he’s a Havanese. “Other than the bendy front legs, he looks just like one.” Also, “he was 2 or 3 when we first got him. Since we don’t know his birthday, we celebrate his rescue day.” “Huxley is frequently referred to as “the little monster.” Also, I noticed you had another pup named Huxley on your blog a few weeks ago who was named after Aldous Huxley. Our Huxley was named after his grandfather, T.H. Huxley, a scientist and contemporary of Charles Darwin. Because we’re nerdy like that. :-)”
Human: Huxley lives with his doting humans, Katie and Tommy, on Adelaide Street. They just moved to JP three weeks ago!
Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
“Huxley has the personality of a grouchy old man. He growls at everyone and thinks he has to keep everybody in line. He doesn’t like a lot of commotion or people coming into “his” house. He also loves socks. Not to tear up, just to have. He hoards them all over the house. When Tommy comes home, Huxley trails him around and barks until Tommy takes off his dirty socks, which Huxley carefully carries away.”
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
“Even when I’m in the worst mood, Huxley puts a smile on my face! He’s always so happy just to be with me. And he’s so stinking cute.”
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
“We’re still finding them, but he likes the pond and the park at the corner of Center Street and Spring Park Ave.”
Anything else you’d like to share about your J.P. Dog?
“If we pass you on the sidewalk, he’d love to say hello! Which, to Huxley, means sniffing, growling, and walking away. Don’t be offended. :-)”
