I was originally adopted when I was about 6 months old. My “Mom” and I met, on June 24, 2005 at a regional Purina Dog Challenge event in NJ. A local rescue group was there and my mom fell in love with me at first sight. I have always been an apartment/city dog.
This past June, my Mom was in a car accident and hurt her head. My “Aunt & Uncle” took me to live with them until my Mom could take me home, but that’s not going to be able to happen, so I’m now looking for a new home.
My Aunt & Uncle live in the country, and have several other dogs in their home, and as I was the only dog in a city apartment previously, it was a BIG change for me. It took me quite a while to get used to the other dogs in the house– I try very hard to tolerate them, and though we do have some really good play sessions at times, and I enjoy the dog park quite a lot, truth be told, I really don’t like living with other dogs! I know it might seems funny that while I love playing at the dog park, I don’t want to dog friends at home, but it’s my clear preference, so that’s what everyone is promising to find for me.
I am very affectionate and loving! I love to be petted! Anywhere really, but when my auntie cups her hands under my chin and gently rubs her thumbs against my cheeks, I actually purr (so cute!) and I like to give adorable “butterfly kisses” when I want to show how much I love you. I also love lying right at your feet, and once I get to know you, if you invite me, I will cuddle next to you on the couch!
I have a sweet and exuberant personality! And I’m smart! I can run, jump and climb like a puppy (I would be great at agility!), and I “dance” and slide when I get excited! Apparently it’s hilarious, as it always makes my Aunt & Uncle laugh. Another special talent of mine is “bug catcher!” That’s right– I will chase after moths and other bugs for as long as you let me, I find it very entertaining and apparently it is also quite entertaining to watch. I also love to play with squeaky toys (but don’t like to share them with other dogs)!
I’m told that not only do I have a lot of personality, but I’m also very smart. I know a bunch of commands like: hungry?, pee-pee, poppies, sit, come, and cookie. I’m currently in the process of learning “lay down” and “go to bed,” and I’m sure if they pair the training with just a few more treats, I will get it in no time! I am of course totally housebroken, but as I don’t like to go out in the rain (I don’t like my little footsies getting wet!), you need to cajole me a bit. Having a few treats certainly can be motivating!
I love going for walks, but need a Sensible or Sense-ation harness, because I do like to pull. No one has had the time to work with me on this too much yet, so I look forward to doing that with my new family! You bring treats, I promise to learn!
I’m not an especially noisy dog at all, but I do some specific vocalizations…I purr when I’m super happy, I do play-growls during play, I will warning-growl when the other dogs are getting on my nerves or scaring me, and I bark when I hear a doorbell (even if it’s on TV) or when someone knocks at the door (I learned this from my current doggy siblings)! I also do bark a bit at thunder—my current guardians say they are going to try a Thundershirt on me for the next storm.
My Aunt and Uncle took me to the vet to be sure I was in good health and I am in great shape and am up to date on all my shots..
I would like to be an only dog please! And no cats either please! And a loving person or people is a must!
If you think you would like to share your home with me, please fill out an adoption application and the rescue folks will forward it to my Aunt & Uncle who will make all the decisions about my placement.
