Hello people of the world!  I am Beacon!  The name kind of fits me as I am a Beacon of light in my foster home.  I'm a goofy puppy who likes to slide off the couch in slow motion and upside down, landing on the floor in a crumpled ball.  I love to play with the other resident and foster dogs but I'm okay alone with my toys as well. I'm learning not to counter surf even though I try and explain to my foster mom she has the good stuff up there and I'm just curious.  Anyway,  I give her a snort and jump down when she calls me out on it. My bark is very whimpy compared to my chonky and strong exterior and I use it pretty sparingly.  I'm pretty quiet for the most part....but I will show my Sparta strength when foster mom tries to get me into the kennel.  My foster mom is a genius and knows my weakness for treats and throws them in there and I can be a bit of a dufus, because I fall for it everytime.  I'm glued to her side and cuddly for sure.   She can't say no to me when I give her the eyes.  (She is a bit of a dufus as well.) I like to play rough with the resident dog but can match the other dog's energy and play gentle too.  I'm good chilling on the couch and watching TV next to my person.  You could be that person!!! Whoever lands me will be so lucky because I am the sweetest, goofiest of boys and smother you in giant wet kisses!!! I'm a catch!
