Aren't I adorable? Thanks for taking to time to learn about me. I'm so glad to be here because I started life in a horrible puppy mill. Thankfully I was rescued from there and brought to Chicago. Once I got here, I had two puppies and raised them and now it's my turn to find a family of my own. I love lap sitting and pets, but am just as happy chewing or de-stuffing a toy. I'm particular about the people I meet so I would prefer a quiet household. I've met cats and kittens and I like to play with them, but sometimes I'm a little much, but a dog savvy cat would understand me. I do need someone patient enough to work with me on house training. I understand using potty pads most of the time, but would need adjustment time and a schedule to help me learn. I like some treats and those are helping me learn some commands too. I'm not in the adoption room, but if I sound like your kind of dog, please fill out the dog questionnaire found on our website and email that to erikasfosters@gmail.com to schedule a time to meet me.
