|How can you resist this cuteness?|
I have a lot of positives. I am house-trained. I walk well on a leash. (Everyone always compliments me on this.) I do my business right away (unlike my foster brother, Ollie, who takes FOREVER to do his business. Boys.) I know sit and high five (most of the time) and am working on other commands. I get stay and come mixed up as I tend to stay when I hear "come", and I come when I hear "stay". Those two are hard! My foster mom says I am very gentle. I don't jump, and I like to give nuzzles with my snout. (I look so cute that she can't resist petting me.) I can stay home alone with Ollie all day and don't do any damage to the house or have any accidents. I do sometimes find socks that people left out and like to chew on those, though. Apparently I am not supposed to do this, but they are so tasty! My foster mom doesn't understand why I follow her everywhere, even from one room to the next, but I am just looking out for her best interest. What if she suddenly wants to pet someone and no one is there? Or maybe she finds a treat in her pocket and needs to get rid of it? I am only trying to make her happy by constantly being by her side in case she needs me.

|Look at me with my foster cousin!|
My biggest accomplishment so far is that I now get along with my foster dog cousin! At first I didn't like him very much. Well, it's not really that I didn't like him, I just didn't know how I fit into his pack. Again, I got a little growly which no one liked, but I couldn't help it, I was unsure of my place! After a few visits we now are friends! I can even lie next to him on my back and am not scared anymore.
I hope there is someone out there who will give me a chance. I really do have a lot of love to give. I would do best in a quiet household as I get a little frightened when there is too much going on. Fill out an application if you are willing to give me that chance and take the time it needs to make me feel comfortable. (It really shouldn't take that long, but maybe a few days.) I promise to love you forever!
