My name is Petunia but my foster mama calls me Tunie!  I’m some sort of bully mix.  She also says I’m a Velcro dog and I don’t know what that means but I do love to sit next to her on the couch during the day and lay with her in bed at night!   Oh my … look at this sweet video of Petunia.
I love love LOVE humans, I want to be around them all the time and I get real sad when I’m left alone for too long :(  I just need some reassurance that I’m okay on my own once in awhile and that my humans are coming back!  Foster mama says I might be too much for littler humans, but older kids would be awesome!
My favorite thing in the whole wide world are toys that squeak!  I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!  I’ll spend a whole afternoon laying on the couch chewing on my honky hedgehog!  I also really love tugging on rope toys with my foster dad, though he says I don’t play fair and try to take the whole thing. I think he needs to step up his tug game!
I also really like other dogs, I get really excited when I see them outside on walks and foster mama says I need to work on not pulling so hard.  I also get really excited when I see squirrels and rabbits and I just want to chase them so bad!  Sometimes I try to chase my cat siblings too but they don’t like it, and foster mama says it’s not okay to do that so I don’t think I should go to a home with any other little critters.
I really hope you like me!  I just really want someone to hang out with that can be home with me as much as possible!  Please give me a chance!
