I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and came to As Good as Gold to start new life.  It took me a little time to understand English and figure out what my foster mom wanted me to do, but now that I am a bi-lingual gal,  I understand the need to potty only outside, and am learning to follow commands like sit/stay and down/stay and “bed”.  Training is also easier because I will do anything for a tasty treat!  I walk very calmly on a leash and spend my days running and wrestling with my foster fur siblings.  I am content to relax in my crate when my family leaves me alone at home, and I get my pick of bedrooms to sleep in unrestricted overnight.

When I was living in Puerto Rico, I had several seizures, but now I take an inexpensive medication and haven’t had any more episodes since arriving several months ago.  Sometimes my tummy makes gurgling sounds and I have some unladylike flatulence.  Recently, my foster mom found me some great tasting grain and gluten free food.  That, along with an occasional Pepcid tablet, helps minimize those issues.

I recently lived up to my movie star name and striking good looks when my canine foster sister Lilly and I became YouTube sensations.  A video of Lilly encouraging me to go down a playground slide by pulling me by my leash received lots of what they call “hits” when it was posted on ABCnews.com and Goodmorningamerica.com.  We’re famous!  Check me out at the link below.

In the evening, I love to settle down on the couch for snuggles with my humans while we watch a few programs on the Animal Channel.  Everyone tells me how sweet and good natured I am.  I’m eager and ready to please a forever family and become a **Star** at your house.

**I will need a playful canine sibling in my forever home to help me burn my energy, and someone who is home a lot, especially in the morning, because I need to go outside to go potty frequently.
