My likes: I love jumping in a canine mosh pit with my foster siblings, wrestling, running around, being silly. Bring on the fun! However, once I’m tuckered out, I also love to snuggle. At night I love sleeping snuggled up to my foster mom—it makes me feel safe.
My dislikes: I am not a fan of baths. I’m also not crazy about being crated.
I get along with: I’d like to say everyone, but I don’t know about these things called cats. I’ve never met one up close. I love people and other dogs.
My ideal home: My ideal home would be single-story home, with a fenced-in yard due to my vision deficiencies. Although I love with all my heart, I still get nervous from time to time. I would probably do better with kids 8 years or older, due to my vision challenges. I would also LOVE at least one furry sibling, that will play with me, but be gentle, and help me learn how to dog.
My ideal adopter: I need a family who is willing to go slow and help me learn my new environment. I get around great, once I learn the lay of the land. I really want a family that will love me endlessly, give lots of cuddles and maybe even have experience with blind of visually impaired dogs, although NOT required. If you’re willing to learn with me, we’ll do great together.
Additional info you might want to know about me: I’m learning to live life to the fullest! I just ask my new family is to please be patient with me while I learn this new world. I promise, I’ll love you with my whole heart, if you love me with all of yours!
My foster mom says I’m coming out of my shell. I’m learning how to play from my canine foster siblings. I do have visual challenges, but I’m not letting that slow me down. Warning, if you go to bed and I’m not with you, I’ll find trouble to get into. I like to explore with my nose and mouth, so I need to be supervised. I’ve been called mischievous from time to time. Someone needs to tell me what that means.
I’m learning how to go down a few stairs on the deck, but I may need to be carried down a full flight of stairs. I can go up, but down is a challenge. If the house has stairs, I would need them gated off, so I don’t get hurt. I’m learning how to use tactile warning strips on the floor so that I can tell when stairs are coming.
I’m not a fan of my crate, though I’ll go in it. To make me feel better, when I can’t be supervised, my foster mom puts me in a safe room, where I have my comfy bed, some sensory toys and soft music playing. What can I say, I’m kind of a diva (but such a cute one!.
