I used to live in Los Angeles near the beach after my fosters pulled from a pound, but I now live in Georgia. It took a lot of time, effort, and love to readjust to family life, but now I love showing off my home (and my belly!) when friends and family come over to visit. I have done a lot of exploring-romping in the Pacific Ocean, climbing through Zion in Utah, camping in Texas, and more! People always give me compliments on my unique sense of style, even though I wear the same thing every day! I’m a pretty mellow girl as I do enjoy a good snooze, but I am alert, letting you know about anyone at the door, but I don’t see any reason to bark all the time. Sirens? Fireworks? Whatever, they don’t bother me. Naps are better!
I’m giddy for walks, but I understand, you’ve gotta get the leash on, so I can be patient, just ask! But then let’s go! I’ve got my commands down pretty good, and I can sit and wait on the walk or in the kitchen. And I’ve got a few party tricks to impress your friends! I’d prefer your company to other animals. I had it pretty rough in my early years….a couple of angry dogs put me in the hospital, so I’m pretty nervous around dogs and would be best in a home without other pets or small kids. I don’t really know what to do when meeting new people, so it’d be helpful if you can introduce me. I also take some medicine at meal-time due to epilepsy, but I haven’t had any problems in years!
Do you have a yard!? Are there squirrels!? Im sooo good at tug-of-war! I’d really like to be in a home with an understanding guardian, someone who is interested in some real friendship, and wants to keep teaching and loving on me. Also, my dad said he’d throw in some private training sessions with my favorite guy at Atlanta Dog Trainers! I'll earn my keep with nuzzles, gratitude, and excitement! I'd really like to meet you! Let’s take a walk!
