Hi, my name is Tempest and my family and I came from a backyard breeding operation that was busted up and abandoned. Me, two other moms and two puppies were taken out of the backyard kennels and into awesome foster homes. We are now known as the Hot Rods! I am a short stack, but solid! Please ignore my ears. It was meant to make me look tough, but it has no affect on my outgoing personality! I am active and strong and enjoy playing with toys and other dogs. I do play rough and am still learning “proper” dog behavior, but I would love a tolerant playmate! I love to explore the yard and throw around my toys. All in all, I am fun, sweet, smart dog looking for some hiking or car adventures!
