Rita must be the only animal in her home want to!!
I am like the happiest, funniest, silliest dog that you will ever want to meet!! Well, that's what my foster family says about me anyway. I am adorable - just look at those pictures - seriously, do they come any cuter than me?
You know what I love most? YOU! I just LOVE people. I love to be around them, and play with them. But you should also know that when I get a bit amped up, I tend to get a little mouthy. My poor foster mom, dad and sisters (all humans) are working with me on this, it's so hard, but I'm learning!! So even though I love children, my foster family thinks that I probably would be best in a home with older dog savvy kids.
I LOVE to go for walks and get this - my foster mom says that I would be the BEST running partner, something about wearing off my energy....... and my foster family says that I do pretty darn well on a leash, I try, I really really try. Here's the but.......my foster mom tells me that I am inappropriate around other dogs. I get so excited around them I tend to jump and bark, often scaring them away or worse. I am selective about my dog friends and don't like females at all, I like laid back males to play with. I prefer to be the only animal in the house. We won't mention the things my foster family calls cats. I see them as rabbits, squirrels and all those other little critters I see running around outside.
I am fully house and crate trained, but I'm not destructive at all. My foster mom hasn't kenneled me in 2 months. I have never chewed a shoe, or pillow, or anything!
Go ahead and put in an application to adopt me, you know you want to!!
