Ever heard of a sweet Tater Tot? Well, let me introduce you to one! Tater Tot is the sweetest, friendliest, happiest little boy ever!! I mean, just look at that smile! And you can probably tell by that telltale cinnamon bun tail, he’s part Pug. Not sure what the other part is, but more than likely Beagle. Whatever Tater may be made up of, he is 100% adorable and his eyeliner game is on point! Here’s what he has to say for himself (duh, of course he talks).
“Hi I’m Tater Tot, and I’m quirky! I’m not like a regular quirky, I’m a cool quirky, or at least that’s what they keep telling me 😄 Personally, I just think it makes me all the more endearing 🥰 I’m not really sure what made me this way – maybe it’s just my age, I am only 1½ after all – but I do know that I am so much happier after leaving TX and getting to come to CO. And speaking of happy, I’m a pretty easy guy to please. I just need 2 naps, a good amount of chewing, playing (inside and outside), snuggling, and 2 or 3 short little walks every day, and I’ll be the happiest little Tot ever! Sometimes I get a little too happy and excited when I get overstimulated. And I am working very hard on learning how to keep that all in check. My foster mom tells me all the time how smart I am and how quickly I learn things, but sometimes it’s really difficult. Like when I go outside, especially for walks……can you blame me though? Have you seen what’s out there? Outside is the best and I want to get to wherever we’re going as fast as I can! There’s so many interesting things to see, hear, sniff, and yes, sometimes try to eat (my least cool quirk, by far ). If I do try and eat something I’m not supposed to, I’m asked to drop it and then am given a delicious treat when I do. I love when that happens! If I don’t listen, then I don’t get a treat and we have to go inside. I don’t like it when that happens. But not as much as I don’t like being scolded or yelled at. That makes me very sad and scared. I am all about the positive reinforcement and redirection!!
Now for the basics, I am fully potty trained, sleep wonderfully in my crate at night, I’m not able to free roam unsupervised yet, but hopefully that will come with time and training, and I love all dogs and people. In fact, I would really love to have my very own doggie sibling to play with and help me learn the ways of the doggie world. I will thrive in a calm and structured home environment, with a family that is around most of the time. I love spending time with my people and want them to be an active part of my life. Oh, and I definitely need a fenced-in yard, there’s nothing better than running around without a harness and leash! If you think I might be a good fit for your family, I would really love to meet you!”
Tater Tot is in foster in Westminster, Colorado.
