From the Foster:   Hi, m y name is Roo. I think I got my name because my back legs are spring-loaded and I can jump high, I can jump and touch the door handle with my rear paws, so no low fences for me in the back yard.

 

Exercise: I do need a lot of it. It helps me control my urge to jump. When I came to my foster parents I had not been walked regularly and I had so much bubbled up energy, but with walking three times a day and playing outside and having another dog around I have calmed down a lot.

 

Did I mention, I am a lap dog. I like to sit in my human’s lap when they are just sitting around talking after dinner or anywhere else that they are sitting still, vet’s office, dog training, visiting, are on the computer and so on. I’m safe there and I know where they are. My foster family says I am the sweetest dog they have ever had (they do have a resident dog), I like to give kisses, snuggle really tight when we sleep at night, taking a nap or just hanging out on the couch.

 

Treat, is my favorite word. I get SO focused and motivated I almost vibrate. I just went through Obedience 1 with flying colors, I did so well. When we are not in class, the things I need to work on the most is jumping…. did I mention I like to jump, a lot. My foster parents are really trying to help me not jump on people but it’s so hard, they say I’m getting better. As a reward, when I have been good and kept all four paws on the floor, I get to jump up in their arms. It’s so much fun. I love it.

The other big thing is that when we go on walks, if I see another dog I want to say hi to or a human (I love dogs and humans) I have a very hard time concentrating and I lunge and I bark, so people think I’m angry but I’m not, I’m just excited and I want to get to that dog/person as fast as I can. We are working on that too.

 

Due to that I like to jump and I play a little rough, I would not recommend little kids in my new home, they might get scared and I don’t want to scare any little creatures.

 

I love my foster sister(dog) a little more than she loves me (she is very independent) and I would love to have a dog sister or a dog brother but it has to be a nice one, I got bullied by other dogs where I lived before so I would not like to get bullied again. It does not help my confidence. How am I with cats? I really don’t know, my sister doesn’t like them, so we haven’t tried. My sister and I look for squirrels all day and then when we got a chance, we chase them, we like to look for them when we go for walks too but I think my favorite thing to chase is rabbits.

 

I’m on medication for separation anxiety right now and it is working pretty well but leaving me, every day, for a whole workday is not what I would like, I love my humans too much and I want to be with them as much as possible. I do not need to be crated; I’m doing great left out at night or during the day.

 

Are you the person, persons, who are going to survive all my kisses and my sweetness, I’m waiting?

 

From Foster:

 

As she mentioned, she IS the sweetest dog we have ever had but she does also have a lot of other corky things she does. She will be missed for sure when she goes to her forever home.
