I came into Rescue because the 2 families that had me before did not have enough time to spend with an active and curious puppy. I spent a lot of time being kenneled instead of getting to run off my energy and interact with my family, but I have found out very quickly that cuddling with my foster family is the best. I love my two IG foster brothers ( 6 years and 1 year old) and I keep them busy night and day now that I have learned to play with toys, those are my FAVORITE! I LOVE toys; please have lots of toys and warm blankets!
My foster cat (4 years old ) doesn't care for me a lot because I am high energy, but he does let me sniff him at least once per day and I am happy with that. Overall I may be the happiest and sweetest iggy you will ever meet. Everything in my life is exciting and nothing is ever bad, except for when my food bowl is empty. Did I mention that is my second favorite activity?
My foster family has taken me in the car for rides a few times and I find this is a good time for a power nap. My last trip was to the vet and they made sure I was healthy. I still gave kisses to all of the staff even though they gave me shots and other things. On the walks we've gone on so far, I am still a little confused about this rope thing called a leash that is attached to me. I tend to get it wrapped all around me and my foster family, but they keep saying I am doing great. They like to tell me to sit, which I do sometimes when they ask, and that is something we are still working on because I am too busy to sit....
I am crate trained and take naps in my house and on the couch. I understand supervised doggie doors and that I need to potty outside every time (I've never had an accident in my foster's home.)
I can't wait to find the furr-ever home my foster family keeps telling me about. It sounds like a wonderful place and I hope they like to play and cuddle as much as I do. I am going to do best in a home with a young, energetic, and similar sized dog so I can burn off my energy. I will also need a home with humans that are able to allow me lots of play time and mental stimulation during the day. Over-confinement and boredom for a pup of my age and energy level will set me up for failure in my new home. These nice people in Rescue have promised me that they will work hard to find the best forever home match for me, and that my next landing will be my last!
