FOSTER MOM: I named her Pookie Fire-Butt because she is FULL of energy. She is about 8 months now and is 40 lbs. She is tall but slender (eat your heart out). She is a delight, I just have too many mouths to feed.
POOKIE: Hey, let's start with my breed. I may have a little bit of Husky, maybe some Border Collie, there's a little Shepherd maybe. My legs are sort of brindle so maybe, I dunno, something else. I'm not a big dog; probably as big as it's going to get so, some kind of smaller dog as well. I have a medium coat so I will shed but snuggling up for a little brushing a couple of times a month will make you think I'm a Yorkie or something.
I guess because of my "mix" I have a high prey drive. If you love those squirrels and rabbits eating your garden, I'm probably not the pup for you. I do, however appreciate a cow or horse (on the other side of the fence). They moo, I bark, it's all part of the art of communication. I have a cat where I live...meh...take it or leave it but if it runs, you can bet your sweet bippy I'm up for the chase. Because I was taken away from my mama too young (thanks dumper, you suck) I puppy bite. I'm getting better but small children probably are a no go until I get better at controlling my mouth.
I wouldn't say I'm "leashed trained" because I'm not. BUT, I love going on walks so I can learn. I do NOT love going in the car...aughhh, who thought moving faster than 5 miles an hour was a good idea?
I am learning what my foster mom calls "basic manners." That means I'm not going to jump on you (unless I forget) I'm not going to nibble on you while we're playing (unless I forget) and I'm going to sit for my treat and meal. I am pretty much 100% house trained.
SWAT says..."don't overwhelm them." So, I'm going to stop for now but stay tuned. There's more to come. BUT, while you're waiting and thinking...THAT'S THE GIRL FOR ME! Go ahead and fill out this app.
