Hi, I’m Nebraska. I’m what you call a, well, fabulouso dog! That means I’m fabulous. I’m especially fabulous when I’m with a loving family who is fabulous too. I like to be around my family, will follow you about, hang out by your feet and periodically swing by you and rub up against you to show you how much I love you. I like to nuzzle and put my head in your lap too, if you’ll let me. I’ll sleep wherever you want me to - and I’m even cool sleeping in my crate as long as you don’t lock me in there forever!
I don’t play with too many toys, but I do like Mr. Squirrel. He’s my favorite stuffed animal. I carry him around everywhere and I don’t even tear him apart like some dogs do.
I’m super happy when everyone is home with me, but I know how to behave myself when I’m alone, so you don’t have to worry about your furniture and stuff like that. I’ll just find my comfy spot and sleep while you’re gone. Probably with Mr. Squirrel.
But when you do come home….woo hoo! I’m gonna be super excited to see you I promise! That’s because I’m fabulous! And I think you’re fabulous too! And, lucky for you, I will sit when I’m told to and I’m pretty good about coming over when you say “come” since it means I get to spend more time with you, but I’m not perfect (give me enough treats or train me some more and I might become perfect though). And though I haven’t been intentionally trained for it, I’ll leave your dinner alone if it’s on the coffee table (but I might take a whiff).
I have to admit I’ll pull on the leash because I get so excited to go outside, so you’ll have to train me how to walk properly. My dad says sorry ‘bout that but since I’m super smart, it won’t take long at all with some clicker training or other positive behavior training.
Oh, I forgot to tell you, I’m a Carolina Dog. I’m not sure if I’m a pure bred, whatever that is, but I look pretty fabulous, so that doesn’t really matter, does it? I’m about seven or eight - my family forgot to tell me how old I am. I’m spayed - that means I can’t have puppies. I’m not chipped yet, but I will be by the time you take me home forever, and I do have all of my shots and my family can give you my vet records.
Also, I’m about 30-35 lbs. That means I’m the perfect size!
So, there are a couple of other things I have to tell you about, because fabulous dogs tell all. Sometimes strangers make me nervous, especially when I’m outside. Ok, well, most strangers make me nervous. So you’ll need to introduce me slowly to people, make sure I can see them, and not force me to meet people. I might get over that some day with socialization training and time. But I do like my dog walker and dog sitters!
I’m also not super comfortable around unpredictable young kids, so I’d like to be in a family without young children (under 14 or so), or I’d be happy with singles or roommates or seniors or empty-nesters or aliens. Well, ok, maybe not aliens. And I really want to continue to be an indoor dog please. It’s boring to sit alone outside day and night. And lonely. Who wants to be lonely?
I might play with a dog that I know well, but otherwise, I like my family more than other dogs. I don’t get aggressive with other dogs or anything like that though.
My family is super bummed that they have to find me a new home, but they have a new baby and a toddler and they just don’t have time anymore, and they’re worried about all the new noise making me nervous.
If you want me, and you know you do, you can call or email my doggie dad - his info is below. Oh, and check out my cool photos! Am I fabulous or what??
