Hello, I’m Pop! I have super soft fur and the white markings on my nose. I am SO happy all the time! I love to snuggle. I like to sleep in front of the oven when it’s on. I love the snow so much! My fur isn’t as thin and soft as most pitties – I have something like Border Collie or something in me, so my fur is thicker and fuller. I came up with my brother and sister from New Mexico. I don’t remember too much about back then, I was pretty little.
I am potty trained! I will lay down by the door to go out to potty in order to tell you it’s time. I am also kennel trained, but I have to admit, I don’t like being the kennel. I know how to escape and like to bark when inside. I don’t destroy anything if I am out and no one is home, I just don’t like to be confined. At night I sleep as close to my foster mom as possible – she keeps me warm! I know “sit”, “stay”, “wait”, and “come.” I’m currently working on “down” and “off”. I am really obsessed with food – peanut butter and yogurt are my favorites! I don’t get table scraps, but I do get lots of tasty dog treats and I will do anything for them. I’m not gentle when taking treats but my foster mom makes me sit and says gentle when giving them to me, so I’m working really hard to get better with it.
I live with a fabulous 10-year-old foster sister and have met all her friends. I have a little stranger-danger with new people, especially kids, so it takes me a bit to calm down and stop barking when I meet them – but I mean no harm. I am still learning my manners – so a family with older dog-savvy kiddos is best for me. After a few minutes I come around and then just kiss them. 🙂 I’m not sure what a cat is, but I love other dogs! I am my slightly younger foster brother’s emotional support dog. He needs to be beside me at all times. I love to play with my big foster sister who is almost two and 55 lbs. We play tug, keep away and chase every day. My big foster brother who is almost four and 96 lbs. puts up with my annoying poking at him, but I have to be gentle, as he just had surgery and can’t play like I want him to. My favorite activities with the other doggo’s are wrestling, zoomies and tug-o-war. I also love going on walks in the neighborhood.
Some other fun facts about me:
Why are you the very best dog in the whole world?
I am smart and love to learn new things! I want to be friends with everyone, I just take my time warming up. I love to snuggle and be loved on. I want to adventure and explore. I would make a great hiking buddy and traveling companion. I really just want to be with my people, have a dog friend and live the best life.
What would your dream day consist of?
A morning walk followed by a good breakfast. Lots of playtime, and then a morning nap. A lunch snack, playtime, and an afternoon nap. Dinner, playtime, snuggles. A last potty break and nighttime.
What general knowledge TV or movie character are you most like and why?
Puff the Magic Dragon because my foster mom made up her own lyrics to the song for me!
What are some of your favorite toys?
I love stuffies, but I love hard plastic toys that I can chew on too. Anything that allows me to play tug is awesome as well.
Play all day or cuddles and snoozes?
Play as much as possible. Long naps in between.
What makes your body wiggle and your tail wag harder than anything?
When my people get home and take me out of the kennel. It’s time to party!
Give me a description of your dream forever family.
A family with older kids, another dog, and a fun active lifestyle. Letting me sleep in bed with someone is a must! I deserve an awesome family that will continue to work with me on my quirks and celebrate my amazingness every day! Could this be you?
