Hi, my name is Flick. I had a family at one point, but I don’t anymore and am hoping to find a new one. I’m currently enjoying spending time in my new foster home after being found wandering around Calgary. I really missed pets and snuggles and especially curling up on a human bed with someone to keep me company. Those are my favorite moments right now.
In my foster home, there are a few young human foster siblings but they make me a little nervous sometimes. When we play tug with a rope toy, or when they throw a stuffy for me to go get, I’m so happy! I would be best in home without small kids for now. There is also a big furry foster brother here who I’m comfortable around. Sometimes I want to play with him and I will sing him my mournful song and contort myself into funny positions on the floor to entice him to play.
I know basic house rules and will sit, lie down, or stay when you ask me. I’m a pretty good listener! But when my hound doggie instincts kick in I kind of forget you’re there. I just can’t help it! Have you ever seen movies with hounds pulling on leads being held back by hunters as they head into the woods? That probably gives you a pretty good picture of my behaviour on a lead. My ideal home would include a large fenced-in property (emphasis on the fence) so I can fulfill my hound dog needs. Knowledge of my breed is a must! I also may chase small critters so no cats for me.
My least favourite thing is when one of my humans leaves a room or disappears behind a door. I worry they’ll never come back and that I’ll be all alone again. I’m trying to master turning round doorknobs so I can always be with them, but those things are tough. This is another instance when I sing my mournful song. I just want us all to be together all the time so I feel safe and can relax. I’m working on building confidence and trust that my people will always return. This may be a work in progress for a while.
I hope you’re the one for me! If you want to test my cuddle skills (they’re expert level) hit the Adopt Me button!” – xo, Flick
