Hi, this is Tate. I am looking for my forever family. I want nothing more than to be a part of your family. I love spending time on your lap, giving kisses and getting belly rubs. Boy I really do LOVE belly rubs. They are the best thing ever. I love to be outside and explore too. I have to be watched around an open front door or garage because I just can't help myself and I run out for an adventure. I have done great on not going potty inside. Sometimes I forget and lift my leg but my foster mom tells me no and to go outside. When they have to leave they put me in my crate. I don't like it but I don't fuss too much. I love meeting new people and kids are fun. I like other dogs too. It would be fun to have siblings with 2 or 4 legs. But I won't be mad if I don't. I don't like cats or other small animals. I promise to protect your from them all the time, even if you don't really want me to. Guess I need to work on that too. My foster mom told me that I have to get treatment for heartworms. I don't really know what that is but she said it is necessary to keep me healthy. I get my first shot soon. She said it will be over 2 months of resting and doctor visits to make sure they are all gone. Then I can join your family. Will you be ready for me then? I really hope so!
