Now for the good stuff!-
I’m a real love bug! I’m in a foster home with other dogs and I get along fine as long as they don’t try to share my food bowl! I’m a laid back kind of gal. I used to have skin allergies but now I look and feel great! I don't even have to take much allergy medicine anymore.
My favorite past time is to find a nice cushy bed and take a little nap, in fact snooze most of the day away just relaxing and enjoying myself. I love to be petted and scratched. I also like it when Foster Mom gives me little kisses. When Foster Mom is at home I like to be close by her but I don't really like sleeping on the bed. I much prefer my own doggy bed.
I am housetrained and probably crate trained. I would love to be a part of your family. I am very mild mannered and if you are looking for a dog that is not high maintenance, please consider me. Email my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask questions!

PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.
