I just joined my foster family so they are still learning about me, but this is what they know. I am a petite gal weighing in at 43 pounds; my fosters think I could put on a few pounds. Maybe I’ll stay petite because of all the energy that I have; I would love a big yard to get my zoom-zooms out. I am very friendly and curious, so maybe a fenced in yard to keep me close by would be best. One of the things that I like to do at my foster home is run and slide on the floor, so older kids are probably a better fit.

We are working on slow intros and I have just met one of the other dogs here through his kennel. I wanted him to come out and play. I did well meeting other dogs in the yard at PUPS; I was very curious and sniffed and my tail wagged back and forth. I am walked outside, for now, and working on leash manners. I love to smell things or just hop around. I had a bath here and I did very well; my fur is like velvet. I do well in the car when I'm in the kennel.

Speaking of my kennel; I sleep in my kennel and go in there when my humans are gone.  I voice my opinion about this for a few minutes when I first go in there, but I do settle down. I think I would rather sleep with my people. I love my people so much!!! I am always up for belly rubs. I like to cuddle near my people; the closer to you the better. I am very smart and I like to take "shortcuts”; I don't go around the coffee table, the quickest route is to go over the coffee table.

I do what my fosters call "No nibbling," but I am just trying to give kisses....gently.  My fosters and vet team are wondering about my hearing...how much do I hear, am I just tuning out but can hear?? I do know "sit", but my fosters wonder if it's just natural reaction?

Either way, I would love to have a home that can handle my energy and nibbly kisses.  Could that be you?
