My name is Corey (“Lucky”) and I am a 5-month-old JRT puppy. When I was 3 months old, I got lost from my family and didn’t know how to find them again without a tag or microchip. I roamed around the neighborhood in search for food and water and found a cat food bowl in someone’s front yard. I thought it was so nice of them to keep re-filling that bowl for me so I kept coming back for more. Then one day when I was eating my cat meal, the family came out to greet me. They took me in, took me to the vet and drove me from Fort Worth all the way to Richardson because they said they knew a good foster home where they would take good care of me. Turns out they were right. I love my foster home! I love playing with all the dogs there and cuddling with my humans. My favorite dog to play with is the 40lb cattle dog. Even though she is 3 times bigger than me, I sometimes win our tug wars and get to the ball faster when we are fetching. We like to go through the doggy door to run around outside and sunbathe when it is warm outside. When she gets tired, I play with the 14-year-old toy Aussie. They say she’s too old to play but I think she likes playing with me sometimes. Then when she gets tired, I go play with the other fosters. I hope I have a friend to play with in my forever home because I just can’t get enough of other dogs and would be very lonely by myself. But after all the dogs are tired of playing with me, I get tired too and jump into my foster parents’ laps to take a nap with them. Belly rubs make me so sleepy! My foster mom has been taking me everywhere with her lately (to change the car oil, to her parents’ house, to warehouse stores…) and it’s so much fun because everyone wants to pet me and I LOVE being petted! My foster mom says it’s easy to take me places because I am really good in car rides. I heard her on the phone the other day saying that they nicknamed me ‘Lucky’ for being found by a great family and taken here but that they are the lucky ones because I am such a good puppy. I scored lots of brownie points when they realized I am completely potty trained and crate trained and know how to use the doggy door. Then I scored more brownie points when they saw I share my food with the other dogs and get along with pretty much anyone and anywhere. They say that when I’ve had all my puppy shots I will be ready to find my forever home, right in time for Christmas. So Santa, I wanted to ask you, can you give me a loving and happy forever home for Christmas? I am soooo excited to meet the people, kids and dog(s) that I get to play with for years to come, I can’t wait! My foster mom says that I am a special boy and deserve all the love and care in the world, so she will hold onto me for as long as it takes to find me the perfect home. So if you know this family, Santa, ask them to fill out an application at furryfriendsanimalrescue.org to get to meet me! I am ready and excited to be someone’s bundle of joy!

We are only able to adopt to homes within a reasonable driving distance of the dog's foster home (zip 75082) and please be prepared for a home visit by one of our volunteers. We do not adopt on first-come-first-served basis, we want to make sure the dog is right for the family and vice versa based on what we know about the dog's personality, habits and behaviors.
