AARF found me at the local shelter. I was so skinny my entire rib cage was standing out. I was so scared I couldn’t walk on a leash – I’d just freeze with my head all the way down. I have now had all my vet care and am a lot better on a leash! I still need a little encouragement to get into a car but once I’m in a car, I ride very well!
My foster Mom says I am a very quiet, sweet and affectionate dog! I love to cuddle and be right next to my person! The groomer even says I’m a very good dog! I don’t jump on people and I am pretty calm and laid back.I like my foster brother and foster sister. I like to play. We all sleep together in a pile sometimes. I am not quite a year old yet so my foster home had to be “Holly-proofed” because I chew things sometimes (shoes and books – oops!). I might have also a had a toilet paper extravaganza with my foster siblings when some rolls were left within our reach! We decorated the living room to surprise my Foster Mom when she got home! Most of the time though, I am fine at home, chewing on things I am allowed to have. I think all toys in the world that squeak belong to me. I am good in a crate and I go right in on my own. I am house-trained! My foster Mom even left some pee pads and I still waited until she came home from work to let me out. I am shy and hang back when new people come over but I stand there wagging my tail and when I feel brave enough, I meet them and get a lot of petting! Several neighborhood kids came over and sat on the front porch showering me with attention! I love kids!! I might be a little too interested in cats to be safe around them, though - the neighbor has lots of cats and I bay at them when I see them.
