FOSTERED BY: Lynda
LOCATED IN: Port Charlotte
NOTES FROM FOSTER FAMILY:
I'm a shy guy and big barking dogs scare me! I tolerate cats as long as they don't bother me!
I've been called a momma's boy and love head scratches and belly rubs.
Hope I can sleep in my human's bed with them, although I've been called a blanket hog!
I love to eat and get very excited at meal time! Don't leave your food where I can reach it or I'll taste test it for you! I get water with my food so I get enough to drink.
I get along with small dogs and although I weigh around 20 pounds and have nice long legs, I think I'm a little dog!
I will look out a window for hours and bark at passing humans or dogs.
Someone has to guard the house!
My favorite toy is Big Bear, he's my best friend!
I'm 14 years old and get along with other dogs, but never learned how to play! You could teach me!
Please comb me often and I'll love you forever. Arf!!! Arf!!!
