My foster mom says these are the dog days of summer – I hope that means it is a good time to find a forever home. I am about 6 1/2 months old now. I came to live with my foster mom at 3 months old. I had been hit by a car and had my leg broken. Luckily the great people at PBRSD took me in and got me the medical care I needed. I am fully recovered now and ready to start my life with my forever family.
My Mom says I am really smart. I am crate trained (I even stay there all night with no accidents), I am house trained (I go to the front door to go potty outside), I know how to sit, I know down and I know “leave it” means my nose does not belong there. In addition, my Mom has taught me to sit for my food dish and when we are outside if she says “drop” I will let go of my toy and sit and wait for her to throw it again. My favorite toys are big rope toys and balls.
I go to daycare during the day which has taught me to play nice with the other dogs and to be nice to kitties too. Also, since I go every day, when my Mom says “on your spot” I go right to the passenger seat of the car and lie down for the ride.
I currently live with a big foster brother, he and I love to chase each other in the yard.
Since I am a pittie, I do love to snuggle with my humans and really enjoy Sunday mornings in bed with my foster Mom chewing on a favorite toy while she reads the paper.
I do not live with any children, but I’ve met kids as young as 2 and I love that they have sticky hands I can lick.
Since I am still a puppy, there are a few things I am still working on learning – We are still working on “Come” and on my leash manners (my Mom carried me everywhere the first two months so leashes are new). Also, I really like my food bowl, so I get protective if my foster brothers come to close when I am eating.
My foster family knows me pretty well and they think the perfect family for me would be one that has other animals, but not required. I have medium energy, so I will need a daily walk.
