My name is Shorty . . Actually my foster mom gave me that name because the name the shelter gave me was the same name as one of my foster brothers. I'm between 2-3 years old and a Lab mix. I'm living with 3 dogs and 2 cats while I'm going through heartworm treatment and get along with all of them.
I'm a quick learner and have had basic obedience training. I love to play and run around. There's nothing better than a good game of tug followed by my foster brothers trying to catch me and get the toy back. Did I tell you that I'm very fast and can out run all of them?
I must be funny because my foster mom laughs a lot at my antics and says I'm a goof. I would love to find my own family once my treatments are complete. I hope to see you soon.
