If my glorious wavy, red coat doesn’t attract you, perhaps the fact that the vet, groomers, neighbors, and foster mom think I’m a very sweet and gentle girl will attract your attention!

I’m a bit shy but follow the people in my foster family around and lie nicely on the floor beside them. And I’m slowly becoming a bit less shy.

At night my furry foster brother and I sleep on our own beds in the master bedroom. Oh, and I found I was able to jump onto their bed when they weren’t home one time!

My furry brother, Mason, and I run around the pool and are a bit playful together. Initially I warned him off when I was eating, but I’m getting more comfortable now. In fact, I sleep next to him when there are storms at night. Sometimes I’ll hide under the table when there are scary noises like fireworks and rain. I don’t shake, but I do find a safe spot.

A few things for your consideration:

  • It’s known that I’m good with children 4-years old and up; it’s not known if I’m good with cats.
  • I go on walks and take rides just fine in the car!
  • I find newspapers and paper towels are fun to play with while no one is home. I’ve picked up the family’s shoes, but not chewed on them.
  • A mentor dog and a fenced-in yard are necessities.

Foster mom describes me as a happy dog and has seen that I’ve become much more social. I give gentle kisses and wag my tail as I’m learning my name. I also love being with the family, okay, mainly foster mom. Do you think you’d love being with me?
