And now, a few words from me:

Hello, my name is Shorty and I am 5 years old.  My foster mom says my paperwork states I'm a Bichon mix but I think I’m more poodle than Bichon.  Check out my pictures and tell me if you think I am right.

The first 5 years of my life was scary and I wasn't treated very well, but now I'm in a home where I get lots of love.  I like to play with the other dogs in the house and with humans.  I didn't like to be picked up but now I know that it's OK if someone picks me up as it usually means I get a scratch behind my ears or placed on a nice soft couch where I can get some belly rubs (I LOVE belly rubs).  During the day I get full run of my foster house and I make sure I'm a good boy. At night I sleep on the couch and snuggle up with another foster dog. 

It is very nice in my foster home, but what I really want is to find my forever family that will love me and watch me bloom into a wonderful dog.


And now, a few words from my foster mom:

When Shorty came to his foster home, he was a frightened little boy. He was sure that the touch of a human was not a good thing.  In the short time he has been in with us, he has quickly learned that he will not be hurt and that the human touch means scratches behind his ears and belly rubs.  He has developed into a loving dog who will curl up by your side (or behind your back), will ask for the cuddles he knows he is going to get, or is ready for a quick play time.  He no longer runs away from us but runs towards us; this brave little boy is a real trooper!

When someone comes to visit, he is right there to greet them and waits his turn to get some pets.  It did our heart good to see that he is starting to trust people.  He is still not a fan of being picked up, but he is quite happy to jump up beside you so you can show him some love.

Being a puppy mill survivor, Shorty needs a companion dog in the home and a fully fenced yard. He is learning to walk on a leash and though he is not completely house trained, he is getting very close.  He loves his treats and will take them from you very gently.  We have not heard Shorty bark but he does make a noise like a sneeze when he is feeling unsure.

Shorty has had dental done and had a few teeth removed. He does have inflamed gums, so he will benefit from good dental care.

If you are looking for a dog that has a gentle soul, then Shorty is your man.
