Likes:
I love playing with Hunter (my best human friend), playing in piles of leaves, playing tug-o-war, playing fetch, and playing with Bud (my best dog friend).

Pet-Peeves:
I'm afraid of loud noises like fireworks, thunder, and the horn blowing when the trains come through town.

Favorite Toy:
I love all my toys but some of my favorites are sticks, balls, my loofa dog, my tug-o-war rope, and my frisbee.

Favorite Food:
Did someone say chicken, where is it... if it's chicken flavor it's all mine!!!

Favorite Walk:
I love to go on walks all over the neighborhood to visit the other dogs.

Best Tricks:
I can sit, lay down, shake paws, stay, come when called, put my toys away in my toybox, stop when told to, and pick up stuff for my humans. When I grow up I am going to be a service/therapy dog so I take my training very serious... most of the time.

Arrival Story:
My momma (her name is Scary) gave birth to me under her human's house during the summer. She has turned the crawl space into her own personal apartment. Even though she is always welcome in the house she likes her privacy and is a very independent lady. When I was about 3 months old she brought me out to meet the rest of the family. I have older brothers and sisters, but when I was born I didn't have any littermates to fight with over food or attention. I had plenty of pit puppies to play with though, one of her friends had a full litter at the same time my momma had me. Not long after I started coming out to explore the yard some of the humans that were visiting noticed me and it was love at first sight. I didn't really want to leave my momma at first, but my new human family promised they would bring me back to visit whenever I want. I was given to a family that needs me and loves me very much. I am very smart and love to make them happy. They are training me to be a service/therapy dog when I grow up. I help my human momma who is in a wheelchair by pulling her places and retrieving items for her she can't get to. I also plan to help make other people feel better in local hospices after I am finished with my training. When I'm not working with my human momma I spend most of my time playing and just being a puppy with her grandson Hunter. As promised, they take me back to see my real momma very often. Bud, my best dog friend also lives where my real momma lives. When I go to visit, the three of us enjoy chasing each other all over the yard. At first no one was really sure who my daddy was or what I would grow up to look like, since I look nothing like my momma. The older I get and the more research my humans have done seems to point towards my daddy being one of the many Carolina Dogs that live in our area. They are wild dogs, sometimes called American Dingos and roam the Carolina's where I live. My humans eventually plan to get a DNA test done so they can be sure what breeds I may have mixed in. That way if some of the breeds have inherited health problems they will know about them ahead of time. My momma was adopted so no one really knows what breeds she is but she looks like a solid black Border Collie. One of my older brothers (Sandy) looks like a Golden Retriever and everyone thought I would look like him, but the older I get the less I look like him at all. I guess I just have to wait on the DNA test to be sure what breeds I am. For now I'm just happy being Rex... the handsome, smart, fun-loving puppy with a great family who loves me!!!
