Stearns is a terrier mix of unknown origin. He was at shelters for weeks. He has a horrible underbite. When I play tug of war with him, he tries so hard. He’s a persistent little guy. Stearns doesn’t bark; he cries. When I give him a treat he walks around the house crying until he finds a hiding place. Existential angst. Then he comes back and eats the treat. I loved him two hours after I took him home. I’m very grateful for him.
