“Hi! My name is Santorini but that’s a mouthful so call me Rini! I’m a happy go-lucky pup who has learned how to be a house dog over the past few months and let me tell you, I am loving it!

I have finally gotten the hang of the whole “inside dog” life, and I think its great. I’ve learned that couches and beds are so comfy and perfect for those long afternoon naps. I’ve also recently discovered toys and tug-of-war is my new favourite game. I can also fetch pretty well but watch out, I will come flying back! My tail never seems to stop wagging, I’m just a happy girl!

Being outside is tons of fun. I love going for long walks and exploring new places. I have worked on building up my confidence being in unfamiliar areas and I have done so well. Turns out, there are all sorts of smells when you explore new places. While being outside is great, my favourite place in the world is curled up beside my hooman cuddled right up! My foster parents say I’m a big lap dog but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. When they start to protest, I just start giving them kisses.

I need a house where I can have my own space; apartments and condos would not be the best for me at this time. I haven’t been around many dogs since I was rescued but with proper introductions, I’ve done pretty good with most dogs my size. No small animals for me as I like that game of “chase” too much! Though my loud bark sometimes scares them, I swear it’s just because I want to play!

Now when it comes to people, I’m sometimes a little scared of new people. But I’ve learnt that most people give you really yummy treats and if you sit really pretty you get lots more. After a while (and a lot of treats) I warm up to strangers. I can even do tricks for treats! I’ve mastered “sit”, “down”, “paw”, and “wait”, and am working on “leave it”. All and all, my foster parents say I’ve come a long ways in a short time!

If you’re looking for a loving, cuddly, adventure dog, then I am the girl for you! I can’t wait to meet my forever family soon! ” – xo, Santorini
