Male – 2 months old

Hi, I’m Stoik! Being new to rescue, I’ve been asked to answer a few questions about myself, so here goes:

What are your best physical characteristics?
I have these eyes that tell you how much I love you.  My smoosh face and curly tail, I’m told, are very cute too.

What are some of your interesting/goofy personality traits?
I run really funny sometimes. I get really excited and run sideways. There are some flowers in my foster moms yard that I love to run and jump into. I’m told it’s quite cute.

Do you have an interesting back story/history?
I have 8 siblings, my name comes from How to Train Your Dragon, so my siblings also have Dragon names. I’m pretty young so I’m really new at life.

How is training going?
Being only seven weeks old, I am not yet potty trained. I am learning and enjoy being called “Good Boy” when I go potty outside. It’s going to take me a little while to pick up on that but I’ll get it. I am not super fond of my kennel right now, but I do understand this is where I need to be to prevent accidents at night and during the day when my foster parents are at work. I have only been using a kennel for four nights so far so I will learn to love my kennel.

Have you met or lived with children? 
My foster brother is seven and my foster sister is six, and I LOVE them! I follow them everywhere and really love to snuggle with them, too.

How about other dogs or cats?
I have never lived with cats but I think I would love to have a cat friend. Right now I live with two smaller dogs. I try to play with them but they don’t really enjoy my puppy energy. I have met one other dog in the neighborhood who is 55lbs and I really really wanted to play with her, but she was on a walk so I could not hang out with her. I get along with other dogs very well. If they would want to snuggle me I think that would be the best thing ever.

What are your favorite activities? 
I love to cuddle and I love to play. I have yet to find the perfect snuggle buddy that has fur. So far I love my humans a whole lot. ?  I love to chew on everything right now- rope toys are pretty awesome. I’m still learning how to play with toys properly so I don’t have a favorite right now.

Why are you the very best dog in the whole world?
I am so happy to see my humans when they get home. I play hard for a short period and then want to snuggle on laps. I would love to kiss my new family’s face and just snuggle all day long.

Please describe your dream forever family:
I think I would love to have another dog to play with, but I also would love having all of my time with my humans. I have done well taking cues from other dogs on how to behave, so having another dog would help me in training. I love kids and would absolutely be the greatest dog in a family with kids. I would love humans that wouldn’t mind if I am right under foot. I have been known to fall asleep on my foster mom’s foot while she is doing dishes.

Play all day or cuddles and snoozes?
I play hard for about an hour then crash hard. I do not mind being carried by my humans, including my six year old and seven year old humans. I generally prefer being carried so I can see the world.

What makes your body wiggle and your tail wag harder than anything?
When my humans come home from work, I can’t stop wiggling my little curly tail. Food makes me pretty happy too- I get really wiggly for food.

So, I sound pretty great, right? I’m even better in person, I can’t wait to show you!
