Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

October 13th 2001

swimming, walking, running, swimming, PetSmart, swimming, chasing birds, retrieving tennis balls, riding in the car, camping, hiking and swimming

thunderstorms, being "crowded," boats, fireworks, having my "pantaloons" brushed

Favorite Toy:
definitely my "baby," an eyeless, buttonless gingerbread-shaped stuffed animal...the only stuffed animal I haven't pulled every last bit of stuffing out of

Favorite Food:
Natural Choice Lamb and Rice, but peanut butter is secretly my favorite, followed closely by Milkbones

Favorite Walk:
Turkey Creek, an off-leash trail w/ a creek for swimming, near Emma Long Park

Best Tricks:
definitely the place command, also jumping out into a body of water as far as possible and making a big splash

Arrival Story:
I was a rescue dog from Gold Ribbon Rescue, surrendered by my owners due to the "development" of "allergies." My forever family waited for several months to be "matched" to me, and were beginning to get impatient, but when I was matched to them, they realized there was a reason they had to wait for me....I was their perfect match. Ihad been shaved almost to the skin (except for my head and tail), so I had almost no fur when I was adopted...I was quite a sight (see pics)!

I am a very friendly dog, always willing to share my house and my food with foster dogs that need a warm home in which to stay until they find their "forever family." I love to show them the ropes to learn how to be a great family dog.
