Top Ten Reasons Why I Should Be Your Dog
10. I'm a great leash walker. I never pull, I walk beside you and will wait patiently when you stop.
9. I’m not a barker. I will let you know when I hear something and will quiet down after the first bark. However I do bark when my foster brother and sister carry on, but I know “Quiet” and calm down after my foster mom asks us to.
8. I’m a great car-traveler. I will sit quietly and I don't make a peep even on a car trip that lasts a couple of hours. I don't show any signs of car sickness, either.
7. I'm not a picky eater; in fact, I LOVE to eat! I’ll race into the kitchen and wait patiently next to my foster mom while she prepares my food until I cannot take it any longer and then will gently put my front feet on her leg to let her know she is taking just a bit too long.
5. I don’t like to rock the boat. I pretty much get along with everyone. I most likely will not make an initial approach and might even retreat, but I am very respectful of other dogs on our walks and even my foster cat siblings.
4. I’m a quick learner and very food motivated. I catch onto corrections very quickly and am acutely aware of tone of voice and what’s expected of me. I’m a great dog in all areas, but one of the few things we are working on is when I get excited e.g.when my foster mom brings me my food or when someone comes home.
3. I’m pretty much house trained. I don’t have accidents if I am taken out regularly. My cue to go outside is pacing by the door. This is not the best choice but since I’ll probably be by your side 100% of the time when you’re at home, if I leave, you might want to check to see if I have gone to the door.
2. I don’t mind the rain or snow. I know, it's crazy, but I will happily go outside to take care of my business regardless of the weather.
1. I’m a “chill” kind of girl. If you want to go for a walk I will happily join you. If you want to hang on the couch, I will very gladly lie down next to you and hope for an occasional ear scratch. Got toys? I love them and will happily entertain myself, particularly with squeaky ones. Although I’m a bit on the shy side and it might take a while to gain my trust, once you have it I’ll follow you everywhere! The thing that makes me the happiest is being with my people.
So now that you know the top ten reasons that I should be your dog, I also want to let you know despite my “Special Needs” logo I'm quite easy to take care of. I have a condition called Sebaceous Adenitis a condition that doesn’t cause me any health-related issues, but is strictly cosmetic. My foster mom has done the hard part in getting my condition under control. Now that I’m feeling so much better, we’re working out a plan that will keep my skin nice and soft. Currently, I need a weekly bath and soaks a couple of times a month. I am such a good girl about getting a bath. I also take medication once a day. My doctor and foster mom have been slowly decreasing the amount in hopes that I’ll only need to take this medication a couple of times a week.
Thanks for taking the time to read about me. I must say that I do think I’m a pretty amazing eight-year-old, 13 pound pup with plenty to offer to my future family. If you want more info about me, please fill out an application and my foster mom will gladly discuss any questions you might have.
