I am looking for a calm and quiet forever home. I would prefer a home without children or cats, and ideally with 1 or 2 adults. I get along with some dogs, but not all. I am an independent dog and need a family that will be patient with me. I need time to adjust to a new environment with new people. I am good at communicating when I am uncomfortable. I do not like being physcally forced to do anything. If you verbally ask me to do something, I will usually abide.
I am both house trained and crate trained and will go into my kennel on command. My kennel is my safe haven and is where I like to go when I need some alone time. I do enjoy cuddling on the couch and tummy/ back rubs, but please allow me to initiate these interactions once I'm comfortable with you. I also like playing with my toys and since I'm a little bit older (4-5 years old) I will never chew on any of your belongings. If you interested in giving me a chance to join your family please fill out an adoption application on forgottendogs.org/adopt/application or if you have any questions, please contact my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!!
