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?
