Morty’s fosterer writes...
Morty is a sweet, smart dog, eager to please. He enjoys being close and getting petted, especially scratches along his spine! He gets along with his foster brother and sister, but isn’t wild about sharing his toys. (We’re going to work on that!) He gets excited when he plays, so we think he’d be a bit too much for young children.
The only command Morty knew when he came into our foster program was sit. He sat very well. Now he also knows down, stay, wait, give paw and touch. He's very good at 'leave it!' and has started doing some agility exercises. He likes galumphing from one person to the other to touch his nose to their hand. (Check out the video – this is definitely what Lewis Carroll had in mind when he coined the word in 1872!)
Morty does not like being in his crate, but will settle down, especially if there's a stuffed Kong in there with him. When he's left out at night, he lies down next to the bed and sleeps. He’s been okay when he’s been loose in the house alone during the day.
Morty was on Channel 9's PetLine! Watch it here: http://www.wusa9.com/life/pets/article/287984/69/Petline-9-Morty

Morty IS expecting to attend the next adoption show, March 8th at the Calverton PetSmart, 12-2, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.
