From the Foster:

Hi! My name is Dusty! I am new to Minnesota! I use to live in Mexico and am not loving the cold rain in Minnesota.

I love to be a shadow and take naps on top of humans. I’m happiest when I get belly scratches after I wake up in the morning and after naps. Sometimes I have bad dreams, but I feel much better after snuggling with someone who makes me feel safe and getting lots of petting. I do not like to be alone and need support with separation. I am still young and need lots of attention, please keep me in your sights at all times to help me make choices that make you happy. 

I am very curious about my surroundings. I’m still learning about the world and like to stop and stare at new and interesting objects. In my house and on walks, I often bark at other dogs, people, and strange objects or noises.

I am still learning to be house trained, so I need someone who will be patient and understanding when I make messes indoors. I would do best in a home that is able to take me out frequently and reward me for making positive potty choices. I thrive when I have a predictable daily schedule, I currently go out every 1.5 hours and this helps me not make so many messes indoors.
