Hi, I am a delightful 3 year old boy. My screen name is Kurt but, my real name is Carter and I love to hear it. I come when called and will sit on command. I have wonderful house manners, leave peoples’ things alone and I enjoy the company of people and of other dogs, too.
Around the house I am an active wiggly boy with a lot of velcro tendencies. I also know how to relax and peace out. I like being near my people and getting their attention; I get along well at the dog park. I am learning about the leash, too. At first it was kind of strange to be connected to my foster mom, but she is patient and lets me smell stuff and I do not pull much at all.
I am playful but, when I arrived at my foster home I was a very timid and skinny young boy. Although I am making wonderful progress, I still have some insecurities. So, I am looking for a family to protect me and to help me continue to build my confidence that humans are not going to hurt me. I need to continue to have gentle, loving, playful encouragement to continue to blossom.
I am in SCGRRescue because my original owners turned me in to the pound and said that, I had “seizures” – 3 in 3 weeks. During the third “seizure” (they said) that I bit somebody. So, my humans instructed them to ‘put me down.’ Not sure what that means, but the Shelter Humans were much nicer to me.
They called SCGRR, and here I am in my super fun foster home! It’s been almost a month now since I was taken to the pound and so far: no seizures, no bites, no growls. Well, except for one big nip that I didn’t give; I got it from one of my foster brothers when I disrespected the pecking order. Now that he and I have an understanding, everything is o.k. All I really want is to be loved and to not have to be afraid any more.
If you have children, they need to be able to understand that, while I can play, run around and have a lot of fun, I would need them to be gentle when they touch and pet me. I am very happy with other dogs in the family and now I know how to be respectful when another dog ‘tells’ me that he wants to be the boss. And, yes, as you can tell from my pictures, I love Nylabones and tennis balls, too.
If you are interested in loving me and helping me learn that how wonderful humans can be, please contact my rep, David at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you haven’t had your interview with SCGRR, yet, please go to the “Adopt” tab at the top of this page, review the description of the adoption process and complete the online application.
