Hi! It’s me Bexley  I’ve been in foster care for awhile because I’m looking for a very special kind of home. I need people who are patient, and understand that in the last 5 months my entire life has changed. I’m learning quite well how to be a regular house dog but 8 or so years in a different home have created some habits and traits that may take longer to unlearn.

Let me start with the things that make it harder for me to find a home: I’m use to not having food available and eating as much as I can when I can. I’m also use to having to FIND my own food. This means I’m often on the lookout- stuff on the counter, anything left out.  I’ll happily pre-clean your dishes, and I love anything milky- coffee (happy to share your cup with you!), containers in the recycle, you get the picture. I can be nervous meeting new people (this might mean I’m hiding behind my foster mom and don’t want to meet you or it may mean that I’m going to bark and try to chase you away). It can take me awhile to trust you but if you’re gentle with me and I come to you then we can build a good relationship. People I like, it doesn’t take me long to start to get along, people who make me nervous, well you might always make me nervous. When I trust I trust wholeheartedly but when I don’t trust you, ya well it’s the same. I’m a great mini guard dog- why is that on my not so good stuff? Well that means I guard my people and my home with all my might, and I need my people to be firm and calm with me when people come into my home.
Good stuff- I’m use to being with other dogs, and although sometimes it takes me a little time to get use to new ones, well sometimes it doesn’t. But it’s best for me to have a calm confident but PLAYFUL dog in the home. I LOVE to play with other dogs, and don’t let my size or my age fool you, I’m small but MIGHTY! I wrestle with the big dogs no problems! I am probably one of the THE most loving dogs you’ll ever meet once you are my person. I love to cuddle, I’ll follow you around, I’ll happily and freely give you kisses. And I have this LOOK of absolute adoration once I trust you.
I’m a pretty high energy girl, I need LOTS of exercise, whether that’s with you or play play play with another dog or a combination, I need exercise and lots of it! Other good stuff- I’m pretty dern cute- my foster mom says 2 great examples of it are how

I LOVE rolling around in the snow, it’s so fun and I chitter chatter when I’m happy and comfy around the house.
If you think you might have what it takes to be my person or people, head on over to my profile to check out more and put in an application for us to meet!

I’d really love a forever home where I can love my people with all my might and have a doggie sibling or two!

Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
