Hi, Sparkles here! I arrived from Alabama not too long ago. It sure is cold here in Vermont, but I am adjusting quickly. I love playing in the snow and taking walks with my foster mom. She says it’s important for me to have daily exercise so I stay out of trouble. Me, trouble? I like my Kong and Nylabone, but I haven’t mastered the whole “fetch” thing yet. Playing with dogs is fun, and I lived with cats in my former AL foster home.
My foster mom says I am the perfect size at 30 lbs. I live with two human kids (ages 11 & 14), along with my foster mom and dad. I can be a bit on the nervous side (this will happen to you when you’ve had a difficult start to life like I’ve had) so I really like routine and a leader who will make me feel safe.
Although I like children, it’s best if I am with respectful older children who are a little more predictable than the ones who are my size. I am housebroken and crate trained. My crate makes me feel safe. I sleep there at night and like to go in and out during the day at my leisure.
Belly rubs are the best! If you are willing to pet me, I will lay by your side all day. Sometimes, I have bursts of energy - my foster mom calls them "zoomies". These outbursts make my foster family giggle. I might be a bit quirky!
I was on my own for a while, and didn't know when food would come again, so I eat quickly. My foster mom is trying to get me to slow down. What can I say? I’m a bit of a gobbler! I absolutely love and crave human attention. Not to brag, but I am the best snuggler around! I would like my forever family to be patient and consistent. With security, I can reach my full potential and blossom into a loyal family member. I love my foster family, but I am ready to find a family of my own. Do I sound like your forever dog?
