My name is Petunia! Even though I get tired pretty easily, I love to walk, and I get really excited when I see my leash. I also love it when my foster parents try to disguise my pills by putting them in pill pockets or peanut butter… I know what they’re up to! My foster family trusts me to potty outside and not get into things, so they haven’t tried crating me. Thank goodness… because I’m a big girl and the crate is a tiny space! I stay downstairs and I’m not too interested in going upstairs, but I can navigate the 10 steps at the backdoor very well. I’m sweet and gentle, but I’m stubborn. I like belly rubs on my own terms. I also create a face mask with my big Basset ear so I sleep better (see how versatile I am?).
