Meet adorable, fun-loving, troublemaking Turkey.... Watch her videos here
She is a 2 1/2 year old pocket sized pit mix looking for a loving and understanding family or owner. Turkey had a rough start to her life, but has become a goofy, animated, hilarious young lady. So if you are looking for a new best friend, but one with a little bit of a wild side, then Turkey is your girl!
I asked Turkey to write up her own bio and here is what she came up with...
Hi, my name is Turkey and my foster mom says I am the best dog ever!! I bring smiles wherever I go. It's not just that I am tiny, adorable... I never stop wagging my tail. Maybe it's because my life before I met my foster mom was not great. I was found as a stray in New York City and was very underweight and had some odd burns down my back. Then I ended up in a kill shelter and thought that was it for me. But luckily the nice volunteers there told everyone how awesome I was and my foster mom brought me home where I could be safe and learn to have fun again. And now I LOVE to have fun.
My favorite things are as follows:
1. Chewing on bones. When my foster family is away, they leave me some bones and I am totally happy to chill in my crate and chew away. It also keeps me from stealing their shoes which apparently I am not supposed to do.
2. Cuddling with people, getting belly rubs, and snuggling up to my foster family. If you've got a couch, I'm the girl you want on it with you. (I will also sleep in your bed, if you want me to. I snore a little, but in a soft, girly type of way). Sometimes when I meet strangers I get nervous, but if they ask me to sit, and give me a treat - I make fast friends and remember everyone I become buddies with.
3. Running around and having fun! I like to go places, see things, SWIM, play with toys, run around the yard chasing things, cuddle and just generally be part of the action. If you have a fenced yard or love to go hiking... I would LOVE to meet you.
4. Lastly, I think it's important you know that I should be your only pet (dog or cat). I like to be the center of attention (who doesn't!). And even though I currently live with two other dogs, I am told I am very bossy with them. I would prefer to be the star of my household but I promise, I am full of enough sunshine and love that just one of me will be plenty of dog for almost anyone!
There is just one thing left that would make my life complete and that is finding a forever family of my own.
So now onto the details - I am around 3 years old, I am potty trained, crate trained, I am spayed and up to date on all my shots. I weigh 44lbs. Currently I am staying in Stamford, CT but my foster mom will drive me anywhere on the east coast for the right home. My foster family has a home in Vermont so that is also somewhere I would love to be adopted to an active home.
