Well hello, my name is Spot! You may have guessed by my name, I’m a cute little spotty dude. If you can’t decide if you’d like a dog with white ears or tan ears, don’t you worry, I have one of each! My spots are really cute but my foster mom says my most scrumptious feature is my little wrinkle patch under my chin. She’s always giving it a little tickle when I snuggle up.
I have only been here about a week, and boy, have I had some new experiences. I’m always a little timid in new situations, but quickly become comfortable and confident. Yesterday I walked to a park. I got to see kids playing at a playground and watched some pickleball. So many things to sniff!
I am working hard on potty training. I’m a very quick learner, so I went from no understanding of how the system works to almost no accidents in just a few days. I’m also working on being comfy in my kennel at night. I cry a bit, but then settle down. I don’t have any accidents in my kennel. However, if I got to choose, I would really prefer to be snuggled up by my people – that would be heavenly! After I’ve settled in a little more I’m also going to work on eating a little more slowly. I get really excited for meal time. Woo hoo meal time!!!
Another thing I’d like to share with you is that I love toys. I love the classics like a ball or a nice stick. I love the fancy stuff too. If you check out my pictures, you’ll see me posing with some of my favorites. My foster family is glad that I can play well by myself or with others.
I also really like hanging out in the backyard. I can have some zoomies and play. Then I take a little break and sneak into the garden to sniff the flowers. My favorites are snapdragons and morning glories. If I see a chipmunk I will stop and do a point pose with my paw. I’ve got lots of puppy energy right now, but also love me some good naps.
I live with my foster family and my foster dog brother, a 2-year old American Bully. He scared me a little at first, but now I love watching him, sniffing him and trying to get him to play puppy games with me. I also love playing with my 13-year old human foster brother and have received a few pets from younger kids on the block and I was gentle and happy. I haven’t met a cat yet.
My foster mom says I’m very smart and curious – always trying to figure things out, especially if it involves getting to treats. I haven’t been to a training class yet, but she thinks I will do amazing in training.
My dream family would give me lots of play and outside time and lots of snuggle time. Does that sound like you?
