Personality Color: orangeOrange dogs are likely young, energetic, and enthusiastic with lots of love to give! They will thrive with regular exercise, and some training classes would be a good idea. These dogs would be a great companion for an active person who enjoys running or hiking in the park. Fenced-in yard a plus!
Howdy! I’m an enthusiastic and friendly guy who’s so excited to meet you! I can be a bit anxious, but I’m sure to settle well into my new home. I’d benefit from a home that can teach me the basics, give me a routine, and calming exercises. I love gentle affection, especially massage-like pets on my shoulders. Visit me today!
13+, ball guarding, easily over-excited
Dogs: Playful, sometimes pushy
Read a note from Homer’s foster:
Hi it’s me, Homer! I’ve spent the past couple of months in medical foster care, but now I’m ready for a family of my very own. I’m a medium energy guy—I enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood, but then I’m happy to come home and hang out or relax next to you. My favorite thing is to be with my people—I like getting pets and butt scratches, but then I’m happy to just lie beside you and snooze on my bed. I’d be a great coworker for someone who works from home or is around a lot of the day.
I also enjoy playing with toys. I like to get my stuffies out one by one and throw them around—I’m pretty good at entertaining myself, but I also love chasing tennis balls if someone will throw them for me! I live with a preschooler right now, and while I’ve been good with her, I am very curious about her toys and sometimes try to sneak them for myself, so I would probably do better in a home with older kids or adults.
My foster mom says I’m very curious and a bit of a Velcro dog, since I like to follow people around and see what they’re up to—and I can get upset if I can’t go everywhere with them. I do cry some when I’m left alone, but I settle down pretty quickly once it’s quiet.
I’m dog friendly, but I don’t really understand what personal space is, so I may be too much for some dogs. I’m generally unreactive when I see other dogs on my walks.
Other reasons I’m a great catch:
– As a medical foster, I was so tolerant of being poked and prodded—I let my foster family pick me up, change my bandages, and administer medicine without any issues.
– I take treats very gently.
– I am learning things like sit, stay, crate, and go to your mat.
– I love to say hello to new friends. I meet a lot of people when I’m out and about—they usually tell me how cute my prance is!
– I mean, just look at me—I’m adorable!
If you are looking for a sweet, cuddly, friendly, and curious dog with a big head and an even bigger personality, I would love to meet you!
