Hi. I’m Dustin. I am looking for someone who will love me forever. I’ve had a rough start my first year in life. I was hit by a car and then had to stay in a cement box for 2 weeks surrounded by barking dogs until some nice people came to help me. I had surgery on my hip and stayed in my crate for 8 weeks while it healed. I am a good boy in my crate, because I know that is a good time for me to nap.
My favorite thing in the world is to be with people. My foster mom says I am so good riding in the car (I lay quietly on the back seat and never bother her while she is driving), that she likes taking me new places. She said it is hard to shop with me though, because EVERYONE has to stop to pet me and tell me how stunning I am. They use words like “docile”, “gentle”, and “loveable”. I’m not sure what they mean, but I think that is a good thing. I love everyone I meet. My teenage humans have friends that come over and play with me, so I give them kisses. I even get to go to some of the teenagers activities. All the kids said I should be the mascot, because I don’t bark or jump or do anything bad. Oh, and I love when we go hiking! My hip does not stop me from exercising for hours! I love food and toys too, but it does not bother me if you take them away from me. I know I can always have them later.
At my foster home, we have lots of animals! There is a humongous pig that lives in the house. Personally, I think he should live in a barn, by my foster mom says no. Some of the other dogs bark at him, but I learned it is best to just leave him alone. There is also a big cage with 2 rabbits. I thought they were interesting for a few days, but they just lay around, so I don’t pay them any attention. Outside, there are 25 chickens! Sometimes I try to sniff them, but they run away. I can’t be bothered to chase them. They really are not that interesting. Oh, and I almost forgot! I live with 7 other dogs. I really, really love 2 of them. My foster mom has taken lots of videos of me playing with Benji. He is only 12 pounds, but I love him the best. We roll around and chase each other all day long. There are 2 dogs in the house that don’t like me. They stare at me and one growls at me sometimes. I don’t like that, so I growl back and sometimes I snap at them. My foster mom says I need to live with a big dog that can teach me some manners, because I scare the little dogs that don’t like me. If they were nicer to me like Benji and Coreen, maybe I would have liked them. I like dogs we meet on our hike and at the store.
Won’t you please give me a chance? I promise you will fall in love with me the moment you lay eyes on me! At least that is what my foster parents think.
