Hi! My name is Agustin, but my foster family calls me Auggie. My foster mom says I'm the BEST boy but I do have issues. Who doesn't?!?! I need someone with a calm home who can keep me in a routine and help me build my confidence so I can stop peeing when I'm nervous or excited. My current foster family is a busy household with adults, dogs, cats, chickens, and three crazy kids and although I love children like crazy they tend to make me extra excited at times and nervous when they make loud noises or are running around. I just need a more peaceful environment where I can relax and work through my fears. I also need to have a confident dog in the home that I can look to for guidance and an example of how to be the best doggie I can be! Right now my foster mom makes me wear a belly band in the house, it's so embarrassing! But it's worth it so I can play with my family and snuggle up with them on the couch. If I had it my way I would always be snuggling with my family. I have so much love to give! My foster mom also says I'm super smart and have been learning commands like "sit" and "drop it" so she thinks that with the right environment I will learn how to control my bladder in no time. I sleep in my kennel all night without a peep and have no problem being in there when my family has to go away for work and other things. I am nervous around new people but I only bark at them and want space, I am not aggressive about it, I'm just trying to tell them they're making me nervous. When we meet it may take me a little while to trust you but I promise you it will be worth it! We will be best friends in no time!
Could you be my new family? I promise to help you through all of your issues if you help me with mine!
