While I look sweet and innocent, there are a few things you should know about me. I mostly get along with other dogs but sometimes if they get pushy or growl at me, I tend to lose my temper with them and then I sound ferocious. I also will fight with them over my food when I first start to eat, too. Once I have had enough, I will walk away from my dish even if there is food left and anyone can have it. My foster mom says that I must have had to fight other dogs for my food in my former home. Since she doesn’t have any idea about my former owners, she says she is just speculating but she thinks she is right. And also there is the little detail about when I am given treats. I am not being mean and I am not trying to hurt anyone but I GRAB the treat and if you don’t want your fingers to get bruised, you better give that treat up quick or else put it in a dish for me to get.
Most of the time I do my business outside. I don’t really understand about telling you when I have to go and we are on a pretty good schedule in my foster home so I go just go outside at regular times. I do know what doggie potty-pads are so sometimes I go on them but snow and rain don’t bother me so I will gladly go outside, too.
I have an enlarged heart and a heart murmur but the nice doctors that work in the cardio department at the MSU veterinary hospital said that since I don't have any symptoms, I really don't need to start any medicine until I start having symptoms. And if I do show signs, those medicines won't cost me very much.
I like to go for car rides and I like to sleep on your bed at night. If you don’t want me on your bed, I will sleep in a cuddle bed but I do like to be near you at night and I like to hang around in the room where you are when you are home. I will go in a crate but I don’t really need to be in one when you are gone.
I stayed in a house with some cats for a couple of days and they didn’t seem like a big deal. I have met some younger children and they seem fine, too but since I have this problem with food and treats, my foster mom says I can’t go to a home with really young humans.
I guess that’s about it so go ahead and fill out an application for me so that I can live in a really nice home for the rest of my life!
