Hi! My name is
Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix
Date of Birth
December 22, 2020
I was a wee bit rowdy when I first came into my foster home, but I have chilled out and learnt the rules of the house and how to settle. Now I love to play fetch (I am so gentle even kids could play with me!) and I also love to snuggle on the couch or curl up under my foster mom’s desk – I love to be around my people!
I am getting to know this world humans live in and somethings can be a bit scary – even simple things like TVs and appliances were new to me but I am getting used to everything that goes on in the house. But outside – that place has lots going on and I am not as comfortable outside as I am inside.
I am told I don’t pull much on the leash, but I tend to zigzag when I am nervous, especially when I see people outside. My mom gives me plenty of room from other people, so I feel more comfortable and she throws kibble on the ground while we walk, which is a nice distraction and shows me that positive things come from seeing people. My mom also encourages me to sniff or keep going at my own pace. We can go for a walk when we meet, and my foster mom will show you some of her techniques.
My foster sister is pretty awesome! I love to give her kisses and we play, it took us awhile to figure out each other’s play styles but we are figuring it out and play more and more each day. I am very respectful though as we get to know each other. I would definitely love another confident canine to hangout within my new home to show me life isn’t that scary after all.
My foster sister shows me that people coming to the house are okay to visit, I like to meet them and then I will come back when I am ready – some people I like right away and others I like to take my time getting to know.
I have two foster human sisters as well (5 and 11), they are pretty cool. I love to race over and jump right on top of the big one when she is sitting on the couch and surprise her, she laughs every time. The little one can get me a bit riled up and I don’t have much spatial awareness, so I think bigger kids would be better for me. I am also learning not to nibble on people when I get excited – I guess they don’t really like that – who knew!
I am happy to report that I am completely crate trained – I am told I don’t make a peep! I even like going in there to lay down, it is my safe space where no one is allowed to bug me. My foster family has started letting me sleep in their room and I love it. I don’t jump on the bed and I sleep through the night!
I am mostly house trained, but I do get busy playing and forget that I should do my business outside so consistent reminders and access to outside is important.
Oh, and I should mention that I enjoy car rides – I just hang out in the back and wait to see what adventure we are going on next!
I love learning new commands and have been told I am very smart and a quick learner. I am really good at sit and down, and now I am working on name attention, leave it, touch, and recall. Even though I am on a special diet, I am happy to be rewarded with my kibble. I can’t wait to meet you!” – xo, Rogue
