found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
UPDATE: Brewster slept very well in his crate for his first night. I do have one confession to make though,... I stayed up late, watching TV and, at around 1:30am, I decided to let everyone out to do their potty again. The cool air must've woken up Brewster because he was very playful when we came back inside. Since he was playing so nicely and quietly, I decided not to put him immediately back in his crate. Instead, we played for about 45 minutes and when he was ready to go back to sleep, I put him back in the crate then. He didn't make a sound until I woke up again and let him back out around 9am, this morning. Brewster's house-training is going reasonably well when you consider the short time frame that he's been here (not even 24 hours). He understands he needs to do his business outside, but hasn't figured out how to ask. I need to keep a watchful eye on him so I can immediately let him outside when I see him looking for a spot to go. We've been playing a lot today with an assortment of toys and he hasn't really chosen a favorite yet - he loves them all! Being only 12 weeks old, it's understandable that he has a tendency to chew and most times, when it's not a toy or bone, he'll try to nibble on my hand or shirt sleeve. The "Chilly Bones" I purchased in anticipation of this are proving to come in very handy with giving him a more appropriate alternative for something to chew on. Other than that, all I can say is, I AM HAVING A BLAST with having this sweet little boy in my home. He's is so darn adorable that I must've taken over 100 photos of him in all of his cuteness and, like I said, he hasn't even been here for 24 hours yet! As I am finishing typing this next update, I am noticing he has decided it's time a little nap and I think I'll join him,... Have I mentioned he's a wonderful cuddler too? LOVE HIM!
UPDATE: The fun continues,… Seriously, if you can’t handle nonstop cuteness, and if laughing and smiling all the time is not for you, then you need to look elsewhere for a pup, because this little boy is not for you. Let’s see, my biggest update now is, Brewster met his OTHER foster fursibling (my cat) yesterday evening. Boy oh boy, was he ever happy to make a new friend! He greeted him with playful curiosity but was not so overbearing to the point where my cat wanted to run away. House-training continues to go very well,… At one point last night, he had just woken up from a brief little nap in between his play sessions, got up, walked over to me, whimpered and when I took him outside, he immediately piddled! He was put to bed in his crate at around 11:00pm last night (which was hard for me to do because he had climbed into my lap and was starting to dose off) and laid right down to go to sleep. However, at around 3:30 in the morning, one of the other humans in his foster home, had gotten up to use the bathroom (which is fairly close to Brewster’s crate) and inadvertently, woke him up. I heard a little whimper, so I got up, let him out of his crate and took him straight outside and he immediately piddled for me! When we came back inside, I had him go right back into his crate and he laid down and went to sleep like such a good little boy! The pattern continued this morning when I let him out of his crate and took him right outside. I am so proud of him for learning so quickly! Brewster is proving to be such a well-rounded puppy,… He is playful, but not obnoxious. He loves to cuddle, but is just as content with laying down by himself, although he will chose to do so right at my feet. When it gets too quiet in the house and I find myself wondering where he’s at, I never need to look far – just turn my head down to the floor and there he is. J He is also becoming more curious about his surroundings, but when his attention begins to focus on something it shouldn’t (i.e. footwear) then, all I need to do is say “No.” and he leaps back dramatically as if he didn’t realize that was off limits. (‘…annnnnd the Oscar for best dramatic performance while being corrected for something he shouldn’t do goes to,… BREWSTER, for his performance after being caught nibbling on his foster mama’s snowboots!) LOL!
