Hello, everyone! My foster mom asked me to describe my best personal characteristic, and after thinking about it for a while I think it might be my playful curiosity. I’m curious about everything—lizards, squeaky toys, toilet paper, you name it!

I’m really good at exploring and collecting the neat things I find. I also considered describing my outgoing, peoples-loving nature. I love everybody I meet right away. This might be a strength and a weakness, though; my foster parents say I’m way too big to be a lap dog, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying! I’m even affectionate towards non-peoples, like my greyhound foster brother.

I’m really good at lying on my back with my paws in the air and going up and down stairs, but not at the same time.

I don’t mean to sound vain, but have you seen my beautiful red fur and my extra-long, extra-curly, extra-waggily, white-tipped tail?

I guess you could say there’s a lot of stuff I’m good at, and a lot of reasons to love me. I’m pretty sure if you meet me you’ll agree, and you’ll probably want to take me home so I can help you collect stuff and share your lap space.

Super Talented and Beautiful, But Not Stuck Up at All,
