Oh hey there, I'm Hushpuppy, but my foster mom just calls me littles! She says it’s ironic, 'cuz I have such a big personality for a small dog.

A few of my favorite things include snuggles, naps, and treats. I love apples and carrots, but will honestly take whatever I can get when it comes to food! I love my people hard and would adore a small dog my size to play with, although I’d probably be comfortable being an only dog too! Being a youngster, I am playful but have a pretty low energy level and prefer to lay low and hang out.

I haven’t always had access to the basic necessities in life, so I can be a little protective with my favorite things, but, with time and patience, I’m getting a lot better at sharing! While I'm yet to be completely potty trained, I never miss my potty pad, and I'm making a lot more progress now that the weather is warming up.

I'm cute as a button and a complete lovebug. Are you my forever family?!
