Hello there. I'm so excited and happy to meet you even though this is the internet and I can't see you and you can't really see me.
The best news is that I'm almost ready for my forever home. I'm getting healthier each day and starting to learn some new things. My foster mom is teaching me ummm - house manners.
You see, before I came into rescue, life wasn't great but I got by okay I guess. I had never had a really great life so I didn't know how wonderful life could be.
My foster parents have 7 big pups that I can play with - a little bit. A few are even bigger than me! Yep, I was surprised too. I love to follow my foster mom around and, of course, I always accompany her to the bathroom. It's the least I can do because she follows me everywhere. She is always reminding me to be calm, slow down, don't rush.
I had to take some awful medicine to get healthy. Those darn shots hurt a lot. Last time - the last shot, thankfully - I laid in my foster mom's lap. It helped a little but it still hurt. All that is behind me now. No more shots and I will be free of those nasty heart worms!
Soon I'll be able to run and play as much as I want to but first I need to exercise slowly to build up my muscles. I'm still a little on the thin side but I'm eating 3 meals everyday and I love it.
I am so excited about looking for my forever home and family where my new life will be perfect. I will have my own family to love who will love me just as much. I'm just a big lovable happy boy. Maybe I could be Your Best Ever, Forever Friend. If you think this could be a start of a new relationship please visit the rescue website and complete an application. These rescue folks have to screen ALL applicants to make sure we rescue dogs go to the VERY BEST homes!
