Female - 4 months old
Hi! My name is Cotton. My foster mom says I am pretty and very smart. I love car rides and belly scratches! I am a good girl and I will make someone the best little friend ever.
I am working on potty training. I am a bit lazy (I know, but I’m still a puppy!) and will pee inside, when I forget to make sure I pee before coming back indoors. When I have to go in my crate, I howl with a tremendous amount oof indignation but my foster mom just says “sshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” like you would to a baby, and I calm right down and go to sleep quietly. At night I sleep in my crate next to my sister’s crate, next to my foster mom’s bed. My foster mom occasionally lets us both in bed to sleep with her for a few hours and that is heaven!
I know “sit” and am learning “shake”. I come running when my foster mom whistles, and then she has me sit and gives me a treat and smooches. I do my best to listen to my foster mom, but sometimes I try to assert my own will and get into trouble, but I am learning! My favorite games are chase and tug-of-war with my sister – my favorite toy is a stuffed dog that I like to run around and shake at my sister. My biggest motivators are FOOD and LOVE!
I have met some kids and like to jump up and lick their faces for food remnants (remember I AM a puppy!). Sometimes I get too excited and nip but we are working on that! Honestly, I just love anyone who wants to shower me with love, big or small. Sometimes I am a bit too rough with my resident cat, Charlie, who does not fight back. My sister and I like to jump on him and we roughhouse too much and Charlie gets scared. The other resident cat gives off more of a ‘don’t mess with me’ energy so we don’t mess with him. I live with my doggie sister, who came with me from New Mexico. We have so much fun!
I am loyal and do well off leash in my front yard without a fence. If I go too near the sidewalk and look like I might want to cross the street, my foster mom says no and I stop immediately and come running back. I am a good listener and love to please.
My dream forever home would have someone who is with me a lot. They would take me to dog parks and train me to be a sweet little ambassador for my breed. I think I would love to have another dog in the home to play with and learn from. Could that be you?
