Hi everybody. My name is Scotty (#3087) and I arrived from China on Halloween night. Let me tell you, I love it here! I love my foster parents, my food, the other dogs and cats, my bed, my yard, all my balls and toys, did I say food, yeah, I love my food.
My foster parents say I arrived as a hungry wild-child. But I was so happy to be here I just started soaking up everything my foster parents and brothers and sister were teaching me. I even listened to the cats. Now I know I still have to learn a thing or two, but I have grown up so much in just the first 10 days, I wonder how smart I will be in a month!
I am still very much a puppy, though I am told I am about two years old. My foster mom and foster aunt say I still have puppy fuzz on my head. I don’t know what they are talking about as I feel pretty darn grown up! I have learned so much. For instance, I learned, “leave the cat alone” (they love to snuggle now). I also learned, “No barking.” That was kind of hard because I bark when I am scared, and I was scared a lot when I first got here. I learned, “No begging” and “Down.” I am still working on “No jumping” and “Come.” Hey, I am a work in progress.
So, I guess I have to tell you, my biggest fault is that I pull on the leash. I just get so excited. But I know I can get better with lots of practice. Yep. Practice. And patience. I also love to ride in the car and am very well behaved. But when the car stops, look out. I am ready to get out and explore. I guess I am still a bit of a “wild child” in some ways.
I will be happiest with a family or single person who can spend a lot of time with me. I do okay on my own as long as I have a dog or two to keep me company. I do not like my crate much, but I can behave if I must stay in it for a short while. I am a happy, happy boy and am happiest just spending time with my people.
Boy, I just love it here! Thanks to everyone for giving me this chance. I promise to do my best.
