Default Critique my petfinder posting please?

So I have administrative access to petfinder I was able to put Tux officially up last night. What do you guys think of his petfinder page?

Adopt a Labrador Retriever: Tux: Petfinder

Anything I can do to make him even more appealing? Thanks!

Thanks PM! I don't have any yet but I will work on getting one today. I may also add a little vid of him taking his 'strut' around the block. Great idea! I keep him so tuckered out all the time he only plays for about five minutes then is back out unless we are out 'visiting'.

That is one of the better Petfinder postings I've seen- nice description without being "cutesy", no typos, and good, clear picture. The only thing I would suggest is maybe trying to a couple of pics with not such busy backgrounds, just to show him off a little better. Good job! BTW- Tux is adorable! Good thing he isn't in NJ or I'd be in a big funk because we can't afford another dog right now.

Another pic sounds like a good idea. Other than that, I think the ad is very good. What a sweet face!

That's a really good posting!

Maybe say why the dog is in rescue? Some people are convinced all shelter dogs have "issues", so if you clear up that the little guy wasn't given up for behavior issues, that can only help. The only other thing I might do is include the actual adoption fee, or an obvious link to the shelter's site so the potential adopter can research the policies and such.

Again, thanks for the suggestions guys. I will work on that other picture today and a video. Caliterp, I will also add something about the actual shelter so they can contact them for more info and add that they can check out ARF's site for pricing.
