Hi! Hi! Hi!    My name is Sunny and I have so much energy and love to give you!!!! I am VERY talkative and want to be your very best friend! I would not do well in an apartment because once I start “ talking I cannot make myself stop.    I would do best in a home with another high energy friend and big yard for me to run and play in … or long walks or lots of them with trips to a dog park.   I really love my human foster sister and my resident doggie friend.    I probably wouldn’t do well in a home with small children because when I get the zooooooomies, anything in my path is subject to getting knocked over …  Sorry-not-sorry.

I can be mouthy but my foster parents are working on that with me; I require lots of strong toys for redirection.   Right now, don’t  leave anything out where I can reach it because I am in the velociraptor stage and shred anything in my path. I absolutely LOVE paper and wrappers!    Mmmmmm so good!   

I am SUPER food motivated!    I will run into my crate for high value treats, like busy bones (wipes off drool).    I am crate trained; however, still have slip ups outside of my crate once and awhile. I still must sleep in my crate at night because I get overstimulated or have accidents.    I have been neutered but your pillows are not safe around me (queue Marvin Gaye music).    My foster mom gets upset, tells me to stop and takes it away from me but I just don’t see the problem.    As I get older, I will learn to settle down and will be your very best friend.    I am super soft, very sweet and love to give hugs and kisses.    When I am calm, I love to snuggle.    I want to be right by my human when the other doggos are not around.    If you work from home, I will lay down right by your feet under the desk/table.    I wish my foster mommy worked from home fulltime.    She only gets to do that once a month and I really like it when she does.   

Please give me a chance … I promise to love you for the rest of my life!!
