You would think that a little boy of only 10 lbs who is as cute as I am would have had a perfect life. Before I became a Furkid, I had a very difficult life. I lived in a house where my people would yell at me and hurt me. I proved how smart I was because I ran away- and ended up at a place called a shelter. While I was ‘on the road’ I had to fend for myself. And even at the shelter I was pretty scared. In fact I was as sad and frightened as a pup could be.
But as luck would have it, there was a very kind volunteer at that shelter who saw through my fears and decided she was going to help me. So she got me started on what she called the ‘path to happiness’. After about two weeks of teaching me that I could trust a human, she called my Aunties at Bichon FurKids. She said that she saw something special in me! Underneath all my matted hair and ‘bravado’ I was a little guy who needed to learn how to be a pup and family member and that couldn’t happen in the shelter.
So I became a furkid and boy! is life is so much better now! Mom has taught me all kinds of fun things but the most important is to trust people again! My doggy foster sister is helping me to understand how kind people can be. I watch her for ‘cues’ as to how to behave and I’m definitely learning!
Mom says to tell you that I’m very smart (aw, thanks Mom!) and that I like to communicate (and that’s a really good thing!) I have special sounds that I make that tell you what I want to do (and Mom can show you what they are!) I love to go on long walks (like a mile if you are up to it and we’ll both be very fit!) and am learning to play with toys. (I also steal them from my doggy foster brother! That’s the most fun of all!) I’m so smart that I’m even kind of a ‘tattle tale’. You see my doggy foster brother was playing in the trash so I told Mom to come and see what he was doing. I barked at him until he finally stopped, then he walked out of the room with a big piece of paper in his mouth so he got busted! (That made Mom laugh and laugh.) You see one of us (that would be me!) is trying very hard to be a good boy!
In addition to my walks, I love rides in the car (I’m a good co-pilot!) and to cuddle on your lap. I’m housebroken (and that’s no typo) and know some commands (like sit and stay) plus I am eager to learn even more! And Mom says I would do anything for a hot dog (yum).
I’m an adorable, eager, energetic, funny and loyal little guy who would love to be your one and only. I’m so cute that people always want to pick me up – however that makes me nervous so I need a ‘dog savvy’ person to be my bestest and most special friend. I also need to only live with big people (called adults) and to be adopted into an “experienced” home with someone who has the patience to help me become the pup I was always meant to be.
If you are looking for a little munchkin like me who desperately needs your love and guidance, please complete an adoption application. I can’t wait to meet you because I know that the best is yet to come.
