I am a very curious and inquisitive and LOVE to explore. I am forever trying to figure out what things are, like vacuum cleaners and drills and what might live under the stairs. Just like cats my curiosity sometimes gets me into trouble. Once my foster mom heard some noises coming from the bathroom and found me in the tub checking out the shampoo bottles. Another time when we were heading out for a walk I decided I wanted to investigate my foster parent's dingy that was tied to the dock. So I put both my front paws onto it and wasn't even fazed when it started to move away. So I had my two front paws on a boat that was getting further away and my two back paws on the deck. If it wasn't for my foster mom pulling me back, I would have been "overboard dog."
Dried duck treats are my very favorite thing. One night my foster mom put a bag of them away at the back of the counter where she thought I couldn't reach them. Well, when she came back later she found the shredded empty bag in the living room and a very satisfied look on my face. That was my favorite dinner ever.
I made up for that little indiscretion the next day when my foster dad and I were having a snooze of the sofa together. I began to poke and prod at the blanket that is always kept there. My foster dad opened one eye to see me trying to cover him up with the blanket. I had picked it up with my mouth and placed it on top of him. Pretty cute, right.
My playful side is really coming out now - I will race around to greet you when you come home and will run circles around you when I want you to play with me. I am such a cheerful, outgoing and affectionate girl.
It will take me a few days to feel safe in a new home but once I do I bond very strongly. I am also very protective of my family and will bark at people who walk by the house and anyone who visits the home. So it would be best if I got a quiet home where there aren't a lot of visitors who come over. As I adore sunbathing I would love a home with either a large deck or a yard.
I am happy, healthy, house trained and looking forward to finding the home I have been waiting for all of my life. I will return your kindness and commitment to me with more love and laughter than you could ever imagine. My adoption fee of $450 includes medical testing, current vaccinations, spaying, a microchip and my transportation to Canada.
