Hi everyone, I’m Johnson, an adorable, happy-go-lucky puppy rescued by FTF from an overcrowded Texas shelter. I love to play, with humans, my toys, or with other dogs (I get along with pooches of any size and need another dog in my forever family to help me with my confidence). In fact, a favorite pastime is being chased around the backyard by my much larger foster siblings—I can run like the wind! Then like a typical puppy, one minute I’m Johnny Rocket, the next I crash and am ready for a snooze, either snuggling in an available lap or curling up on the big dog bed, covered with comfy blankets. 

Here are a few other facts about me. I’m a little shy when I first meet new people. That doesn’t last long, though, as my natural curiosity and friendliness quickly win out. I’m already potty-trained, and would love a fenced yard to enjoy while I continue to work on my leash-walking skills. Of course, I have lots of other things to learn, too, so signing me up for training classes is a requirement for my adoption. Since I’ll do almost anything for a treat, you’ll find I catch on fast and thrive on praise. Lastly, because I’m such a little guy, very small children may overwhelm me, at least initially, but I have no problem with older kiddos.

My foster mom describes me as goofy, playful, shy, and lovable. Do I sound like the pup you’ve been waiting for? Then please fill out an adoption application right away, so we can meet and start sharing a life filled with fun, love, and as you can see from my photo—dress-up!

Love and licks,

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
