Hi there! My name is Tux, short for Tuxedo, because… well, look at me. Am I not the most dapper, little man you’ve ever seen? I came to MN recently after trying to find my way on the streets of central Texas. I think my time in Texas has made me pretty brave, there isn’t much that scares me. I’m usually a little more curious about loud noises, new things or people than I am afraid. Right now, I’m shacking up with my foster mom and foster doggie sister.

My foster sister is a 50 lbs pittie and I am absolutely in love with her! We play and wrestle most of the day and she lets me nibble on her chubby face which I think might be my favorite pastime. I've met some kids and I did wonderfully with them – I love playing with them and giving them lots of kisses! My foster mom doesn’t have any cats so she’s not sure how I would do with them, but if you have a cat I could do a cat test to see how I do. 

I’m really coming along with all my training. I do really well with my kennel but I don’t really like being in the room alone. I get lonely and cry for my foster sister but once she lays down in there with me I am content and fall right to sleep. I’ve already mastered “sit” and am working on sitting patiently for my food. I just get so excited for food that it’s hard to sit still and I end up wiggling around a lot. My foster mom says I’m the smartest pup she’s ever had and such a quick learner. I’m almost fully potty trained and didn’t even use potty pads. Sometimes, if my foster mom isn’t paying attention and I really have to go, I’ll have an accident but I have learned to go to the door when I need to go potty. My foster mom says I’m doing so well and that I’m the perfect pup to adopt if you want a puppy but don’t want to deal with potty training, chewing and all those other things a younger pup will do.

I’m really trying to live up to my dapper look by being more refined but I just have so much fun being spunky and wild! My foster mom always says to “do that outside” when I get what she calls “the zoomies,” but I think I have more fun inside where there are objects to jump on and off of. Wahoo! I’m still a puppy after all. My foster mom says I’ll grow out of that soon enough, but the zoomies will still come out when I’m really excited and want to play! I would love to meet you and show you my zoomies sometime. What do you think?
