My life has changed a lot since my days as a stray on the streets of Puerto Rico. I was shy and cautious when I first arrived in Chicago, but with the TLC I have received at my foster home, I have blossomed. At forty-two pounds, my foster mom describes me as “sweetness in a tiny body.”
I get anxious when I am locked in a crate, but I am comfortable being gated in a safe area. I have two canine foster brothers and am always willing to share their toys with them! I’m not sure what a c-a-t is, so I don’t know if I would like sharing my house with one. My favorite game is playing tug of war with my squeaky alligator and I love going on car rides especially when the windows are open and my ears are blowing in the wind. My foster brothers and I go on four jaunts around the neighborhood each day. I am a very good leash walker and I never pull. I am friendly to all the people and dogs we see along the way and everyone we meet tells me what a sweetheart I am. My Foster Mom agrees!
Since I probably lived on the streets for most of my life and I am still a young dog, I have had a little difficulty with learning the proper place to go potty. However, I have improved a lot recently and given a little more time and encouragement, I will be perfect! I’m usually pretty quiet, but if a stranger comes to the door, I will bark several times to alert my family. Then I will give tail wagging greetings once Foster Mom assures me we are safe.
I love children and would be a great companion on walks, in the yard playing fetch and just settling in to watch a little television together. At bed time, I will race to get the best bed position for some ear scratches, cuddling and some end-of-the-day attention. Are you ready for a little night time competition for the optimum spot?
I need another dog and someone who is home a lot in my forever home.
