In shelter DogFarmington, Minnesota, 55024
So it is true. I may not have that fun spunk of a new puppy. But that doesn’t mean I shouldn't have a loving home. Even though I am considered a ‘senior’ I have so much love to provide I would love someone who will let me call their home my final home. * check out my video of the special characteristics that I do have :) You see life has not been easy for me. To land in a shelter at my age is not fun. I am not sure what I did as I don’t even know, but my foster mom took a chance on me. I arrived covered in ticks and had heartworm. I guess I could say I wasn’t previously taken care of. My foster mom said no worries, here is a warm bed, a nice blanket and she even gives me so many special dinners. After many days of treatment and getting the help I needed, I have really turned into a special guy. My family has been working really hard with me on training and I have come so far. I am now much more comfortable in the home. I know sit and down on command and working with heal. My human sister is working training me and we have so much fun together. I have discovered toys and love to grab them when no one is watching and run like the wind with them. Birds.....oh boy I love them. They like to tease me from afar so I have learned to sneak up and poof, they fly away. It is a fun game. When I came into rescue I did some quirks, but hey don’t we all? I mean, it what makes us who we are. But my mom wants me to tell people so they understand the transition will take time. I am slow to trust new people. I am doing much better if I meet the people outside first and it goes much better. It appears I was probably an outside dog so I tend to mark the first few days but a belly band in hand I learned very quickly. Now I know much better! I was really over-excited, nervous when I first lived a house. I would find some objects and, well, I would get overly excited with them. Yea, certainly not at all proper manners, but it gave my mom some chuckles. I would hear her go Levi, OMG not again. I no longer do that either but my guess is I could relapse until I got comfortable again. I live with dogs but do better with dogs either who don't want to play or who are not over-powering. I have a dane sister who is like a bull in a china shop that I have to remind to leave alone. I really just am looking for a place to lay my head. I love going out and smelling all the great smells after winter and hearing all the birds around me. I would love to go on a short stroll around the block. I go in my kennel when my mom goes to work, but I do put up a little singing show before I actually see her leave so shared walls aren’t the best. I am guessing by their sudden movements little children will bother me. But I live with a 10 year old and I love waking her up in the morning and following her around on her adventures.
