Updated Story 7/26/21
Hey there, I’m Scott! You can call me Scotty though. I ended up at GRRMF hoping to get a new lease on life.
I recently switched to a new foster home and I’m loving it here! I have three other foster siblings here and I love them all, particularly my foster sister Sophie. We love the same squeaky toy and often play with it at the same time! I love having playmates!
Since I am still young, I am a ball of energy and I am working on harnessing that and calming down. I also love my toys and can be a bit mouthy when I get excited and want to grab them. Specifically, I LOVE balls and don’t always want to part with them. However, I am learning to drop them when my foster mom asks me to. I’m also learning that I like squeaky toys! And if my human wants to play with me, I’ll happily oblige! Being noticed is also something important to me and I love to happily bark whenever I see other humans, especially on walks. Hey, who doesn’t want to be famous? But I’m told that this isn’t always appropriate and so I’ve been working on toning it down a bit. In fact, the great trainers at GRRMF are helping me learn a new technique called “watching the world go by.” This will help me control my barking and jumping. And I’ve been improving! Now, about a quarter of the way through our walks, I can calm down and not bark so much.
I am working on my commands and have gotten pretty good at coming when I’m called. Sit and down are other things I’m working on, as well as drop it when playing fetch. Patience is a virtue, I’m told, so I’m working on that as well. I love playing games as part of my training, like “hot dog in the tree.” They’re teaching me to focus on what my humans say. My foster mom has also noticed that I respond well when praised and am shown lots of affection. I am also very smart, which is probably why I’m catching on so well! I am good in my crate and am not entirely house broken yet, but I’m working very hard and do my best to let my humans know when I have to go. My old foster dad used to say that I have beautiful eyes and I do my best to be a lover with what I know at this point in my life. As you can see, I am working hard to become the gentleman (or should I say dog) that I can be!
