I came all the way from Texas to Minnesota to find a better life. I was so afraid of everything and everyone when I came here. I live with other dogs in my foster home, but it took me awhile to trust them too. Now I really trust them and love to play! They showed me what I needed to do to be comfortable living in a home that people do love me.
I really like being outside so I can explore every inch of my yard and run like the wind. My foster Mom says I am a fast runner, that's why I need a fenced in yard. My foster brothers are Italian Greyhounds and I can leave them in the dust when I want to run and chase squirrels.
I potty outside only. My foster Mom lets me sleep at the end of her bed (covered with a blanket of course) but I also sleep in a doggy bed next to hers.
Just give me a chance to show you what a love bug I am. You will need to understand that it will probably take me awhile to be comfortable in my new home with you, but once I am.....you will not be sorry â¤ï¸.
