I am already neutered, purebred, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi! My name is Satchmo and I'm one terrific, energetic, and loveable guy who’s looking for a family to call my own! I have been in my foster home for about three weeks now and I’m learning so much. When I first got here, I thought the kitties who also live there were for chasing, but have learned from my new family that I’m not allowed to do that anymore....it is still very tempting, but I really do try hard to please my family. While I am getting much better being around cats, I really think I’d be happier in a home that doesn’t have any so that I am not tempted and won’t wind up in trouble. I am very good with other dogs of all sizes once I get to know them.
I think I have finally mastered this thing called “housebreaking”....my family seemed to think that it was incredibly important, and just like the guy I am, I totally wanted to please and learned it in no time. Now that I have learned some basic skills for living in a home with people and other animals, it is time for me to start learning some basic commands. I’m a really smart guy, so I know I’ll pick everything up pretty quickly.
OK, here are some really important things you probably want to know about me: I love to play! I love chasing balls, cats (oh, wait, I’m not allowed to do that anymore!), chewing rawhides and such. Don’t worry, you won’t have to play with me all the time....I’m really good at entertaining myself with toys! Sometimes, though, I don’t realize how big I am and might play just a bit too rough for small children or small dogs. I totally understand my job as the protector of my people, too. I bark at things I think are a problem, but know not to over-bark and annoy my humans. I’m learning how to walk properly on a leash, but still need a lot of practice. Generally, I am very respectful of “human” things and leave them alone, but I’m still a bit of a puppy, so I do need a little bit of supervision, just to be sure!
I love wading in my foster family’s pool for a quick drink, but haven’t tried swimming in the deeper parts yet. Although there are no kids in my foster home, I am good with children when I meet them. I basically just love people of all kinds and sizes. I am crated during the work day, and am I really ready to get out once my foster family comes home in the evenings. Once I have had a chance to play a bit, I love snuggling with my family and basically just chilling out!
If you are looking for a fun-loving companion, I just might be the guy for you. Why don’t you come by and check me out?
