About Booker

“I’m a gentle, stubborn sweetheart. I don’t talk about my past but my human says I must have been out wandering alone for quite some time but that I have amazing dawg manners.

I wasn’t too sure about much when I met the foster humans but over time I have come to trust them completely. They have some totally bizarre rules like they attach themselves to me, with a string they call a leash, to go for walks but then don’t let me pick the direction we should go in!  I’m not to sure what is up with the leash thing but they say I’ve gotten so much better on it. At first, I thought that maybe if I just lay down and played dead they would take it off but instead they called me “dramatic” and laughed. Now they say I’m soo much better at walking with them but I still like to test them once in a while by just stopping in random spots.

I am completely house trained (the humans says I perimeter poo and that is really great) and rarely bark. The cats I live with are pretty cool but sometimes I like to chase the little one; the other ones are indifferent to me so I don’t bother trying to chase them. I meet lots of nice people and have been happy to meet them all. I can be uncertain about meeting dogs when I’m on the leash and can be growly. The smaller the dog I meet the friendlier I am. I would just need lots of time and patience to get to know other dogs.

I would keep my foster humans but they don’t have a yard and I looooove to be outdoors. I enjoy shorter walks on account of my front right leg not working but the more I get the better!!

I am looking for super awesome,  nice people who want to give me belly rubs, tell me how good I am and take me for walks.” – xo, Booker
