Likes: Most of all I love food!! I don't care how tired I am, if you have food I will be wide awake and I will stare at you until you are done. I also love attention and sleeping in warm beds. I love to take walks outside, and I love to try and bully other dogs.
Pet-Peeves: I hate when my mom tries to cut my nails! I will fight and wiggle out of her grip until she is covered in hair, sweats, and gives up. I am terrified of loud noises too! Smoke detectors, fireworks, thunder, loud rain and loud wind.
Favorite Toy: I have a few toys but my favorite one is my raccoon stuffed animal. I usually sit and pull the stuffing out until my mom takes it away.
Favorite Food: I love ANY food. You name it, I'll eat it. Please don't leave A1 sauce on the plate though. I do not like that.
Favorite Walk: I love to walk anywhere, I love the outdoors. My mom promised to start taking me on long walks at the park every weekend.
Best Tricks: My best tricks are howling and sitting up like a rabbit. Sitting up like a rabbit and tilting my head usually wins. I give high fives. My mom and grandmother also taught me how to give my paw, so I throw it over and over nonstop.
Arrival Story: My mom will never know the reasoning on how I was at a rescue shelter, except for the fact I was rescued from home. She will always be curious though. She wanted a lab so badly but where we live only allows small dogs. Luckily for her I'm mixed Dacshund so I look like a lab but I'm small and I have little legs, a longer body, and a long tail. She saw that I was three already and knew I was no longer growing. She snatched me right away. My dad bought me for her for her graduation. I required A LOT of patience and still do at times, but she is more than happy to do anything for me and loves me with all her heart. I'm spoiled rotten. I make scenes at the vet by trying to get the dogs ten times my size, so my mom has to keep me outside then rush me in to get those nasty shots. We don't know my birthday, but she says June because that is when she got me.
Bio: I got the nickname Shadow because of my color and I have a white streak down my chest like the character on Sonic. I earned the nickname Burrito Boy because one time I was very bad and snatched dad's burrito when he wasn't looking. I have been much better at that since. I got the name Big Guy because I'm the bigger of us two and dad likes to call me that.
