My previous owners got me during the pandemic. Everyone had to go back to school and work, and they did not want to leave me alone for long periods of time. I really don’t like to be left alone and may bark until I get used to the fact that you will return. No need to worry about your house while you’re gone as I am housebroken. My crate is my castle which I like to fill with blankets and toys. If there are other dogs around, I can eat in my crate. Being from a one dog family, I don’t like to share my food.
The closer I can get to you the better. If you let me, I will take up the whole sofa. If my only option is the floor, I will cuddle at your feet. If you hear a little rumble, that would be me snoring…sorry…it means I’m happy. Growing up with a 10-year-old girl, I am fine with children. I love being by your side but if you want some me time, I can entertain myself. If there are other dogs, I get very protective of my food and you. I will put myself between you and the other dogs. If they touch my toys or food, I will give a warning growl but would never hurt them. I’ve never had to share but am sure I could learn.
Belly rubs, car rides, playing catch, and long walks are a few of my favorite things to do. My previous owners took me to the beach which was so exciting. I love the water but have not experienced a pool. I lived with cats at my foster and liked to sniff them. I got a little scared when they wanted to rub on me. As to other animals, playing chase with them is fun and I will bark to protect you, even when there is no danger. Turtle watching also seems to be a favorite pastime, as there is one at my fosters.
You may call me a fruit nut. I like to eat carrots, strawberries, chicken treats, and watermelon. Water? I have not mastered keeping it in the bowl. You may want to have a towel near to wipe my mouth as well as the floor.
I only want to love my new family, share new experiences with them during the day, and cuddle with them at night. Can we do this?
