Hi….my name is Carter and I would love to be your one and only BEST friend. I love my hoomans, especially DUDES! My perfect life would have a man to hang out with, take on long walks, hikes or short jogs in the early morning light or late evening, watch me chase lizards in the yard, enjoy my frequent grateful kisses or just have me accompany him around the house. My nickname could be “Shadow”. Chicks are fine too but I really like DUDES!
I’m perfect in the home: house broken, attentive, impeccable manners, will bark to alert at the door and keep small critters at bay. One thing to know…if you don’t want me in the bathroom, you should shut the door all the way or I will join you! In the beginning, I will be laying right up next to your chair but as I settle in, I will give you a bit more space and lay in a hallway where I can see where you might move about the house. I’m so loving and sweet, I will give your arm a nice bump if you haven’t pet me enough. I know the commands “sit”, “down” and “up”. I love to do zoomies in the yard and have finally started to fling my stuffies about with joy. I’m great in the car. I will bark to alert that someone is at the door. I like both my foster parents but I do favor dad the most. Don’t get me wrong, I like mom too and am very affectionate with her. But if given the choice, I prefer to hang out with dad. I’m super smart and learn quickly too.
A few things do make me nervous – young kids in the home as well as other dogs in general. I would prefer not to interact with either in the home and when I see dogs on walks, I need a physically capable handler to help me work through my feelings. I’m not a dog park or dog beach kinda dog. What I lack in appreciation for other dogs, I make up tenfold in my love for calm, adult humans.
I’m on a special diet for crystals in my urine and a medication to take the edge off some general stress. But don’t worry, I come with lots of love and a heart full of gratitude for the right person who can provide me with a peaceful and loving home.
My Ideal Home
Carter’s ideal home would be a DUDE, young retired couple or individual living in a quieter neighborhood. He would like to be the center of your universe – your one and only pet. He needs a physically strong handler for walks and would enjoy people who love long walks in nature or hikes or even short jogs in the early morning air. Carter would also love a yard so he has then opportunity for some free, off leash time. No kids, small critters or other dogs.
