    Hi! I’m Chopper and boy do I love to play!

    I’m about 40 pounds or pure love and fun. If I could run and play with toys all day I would be the happiest pooch around! I used to live with a cat and we would snuggle and he’d even let me play with him. I currently live with my foster brother who is a bit bigger than me but is very tolerant of my constant need to play and jump on him. He is teaching me that the world isn’t such a scary place and I will follow him around everywhere. I would love to find a home that also has a confident pup that would be tolerant of my constant desire to run and play.

    I know that outside is where I do my business and I’ll go as fast as I can if I’m let out by myself so that I can quickly be reunited with my foster mom and brother. I’ve been going to doggy daycare with my brother, and boy do I love it! I’m a little nervous to meet new dogs at first, but I quickly show how submissive I am, and then they warm up to me. Then some of them start to think of me as that annoying little brother. Maybe I could work on my jumping a little bit. My foster mom said I would make a great agility dog. I don’t know what that is, but boy does it sound fun!

    I love to be with my foster mom, and I’ll cuddle with her as much as I can when I’m not playing. I would love to sleep on the bed with her at night, but I’m learning quickly that I have to sleep in my own bed next to her on the floor, and I’m just fine with that. Even with my brother on a different bed, I will sleep through the night with no problems. I really don’t like to be locked in a room by myself. I’m just afraid I’ll be forgotten so I’ll do what I can to make sure I’m not. I eat all my meals in this room so it’s starting to seem not so scary, but I still don’t like that big wire cage. It reminds me of a time that was very traumatic so I’ll just watch my brother go in there instead. I’m starting to see it’s not so scary though because he gets lots of treats in there, and I love treats! If you are willing to help me, I’m very willing to learn!

    My foster mom says I’m a great listener. I know how to sit and I’m learning “”down”” and “”wait”” really quickly. I still pull on my leash, but I’m just so excited to go to new places. I also love car rides! I get really excited and will jump in the car eagerly. Just please don’t put me in that wire crate. I promise I’ll be good!

    If you have patience to teach me that the kennel is a safe place, and you love to get out of the house and do lots of active things, then I may just be the best friend you’ve been waiting for! Come meet me!
