Have you ever been someone's second choice? Have you ever lived in someone's shadows? Have you ever watched the people you love to pick someone different every single time? It isn't fun. Actually, it absolutely sucks. The people who were supposed to be my family never really saw me. I was always in the shadow of my sister, so she always got the best while I got what was left. She got the better treats, she got more attention, and she even got to come inside more than me. I am not upset with my sister, Austyn. She is such a sweet soul and always tried to include me when she could. She was actually the only one who ever seemed to really see me. It isn't her fault that she was the one my family wanted to keep. It wasn't her fault that my owners had been trying to rehome me since I was old enough to leave them but no one ever took me. To a point, I understand. Austyn was going to stay with them...so she was the one they poured their love and training into. It still doesn't make it hurt less that I always watched her get spoiled while I watched from the sidelines. That I was skinnier than her. That I had less inside time than her. That I got less attention than her. I wanted someone to love me like my family loved Austyn. I was actually hoping someone amazing would adopt me...but no one ever did.
Things ended up taking a turn when my owner's landlord said that they could not keep me or my sister. He said we had to go, so my family was left scrambling trying to find a place for both of us. Thankfully, this rescue saw their plea and reached out. My family ended up surrendering us to this rescue and now we are both in amazing foster homes. When I got to my foster home, I was prepared to stay outside but instead, they brought me inside with them. I was so excited, I had been inside a few times but I also spent most of my days outside. I decided that I really liked my foster parents and am always close to them. Despite never being someone's number 1, I am super loyal and I prefer to always have my people in my eyesight. I have good house manners and have free roam of part of the house when my foster family is gone. I am potty and kennel trained. While I am okay being kenneled, I don't prefer it. I would rather be allowed to free roam and keep an eye on things and on my family. I really like being close to wherever they are. I enjoy chewing on rawhide chips and oinkies. I am not all that interested in nylabones. I am hit or miss on a kong filled with peanut butter. While I have not chewed on anything I shouldn't, my new family will want to have lots of toys and some longer-lasting chews around to help redirect me in case I decide to grab something that I shouldn't. I try really hard to be a good boy in the house, but I am still a puppy so you can't expect me to be perfect all the time ;) I am not a big barker. In fact, my foster family has yet to hear me bark. I do believe that I would be a candidate for apartment living. I am a very sweet guy with a lovable personality. I think I would rather enjoy being walked all the time and meeting new people/animal friends on the way.
I know that puppies tend to be energetic and all over the place, but I am on the calmer side. When I get excited, I will run like the wind outside! Especially, if I see a squirrel that needs to be chased! When it comes to walks, I am initially nervous. I am trying to figure out what the heck you just put around my neck. However, I watch the other dogs and do my best to follow their lead. I catch on pretty quickly and soon am actually enjoying myself. I love getting to sniff all the new scents. I love spending time with my family and getting to be part of their activities. I would absolutely love to go hiking with my new family. I am not interested in playing fetch. I may chase after a thrown toy but have yet to bring it back or even pick it up. Toys are a new thing to me right now. I haven't really figured them out yet so right now I prefer chew treats over toys. I have not had the chance to play in any water yet. However, during my bath, I was quite petrified and was pretty much frozen to one spot. So, I am not entirely sure that I would enjoy playing in the water anyway.
I am good with other dogs, but I am indifferent to them. I spent so long being in my sister's shadow and never being someone's number 1 that I really prefer people. I want to be close to them and be included in whatever they are doing. If I am always close to them, they can't forget about me, right? I have met cats and do well with them. They tend to ignore me and I ignore them right back. We have a silent agreement to let one another be. I am not currently being fostered around any kids. I am a very sweet and gentle boy though. I do believe that I would make an excellent best friend to a kiddo that has been begging for a dog of their very own! When meeting new people out in public I am shy. I didn't have much exposure to the outside world or strangers in my last home. I am a pretty loyal guy so prefer to get lovings from my human but if someone new proves to me that they just want to be my friend and give me pets....then I am all for that too! I am not a big jumper and have pretty good manners around people. However, I have a really good nose and can sniff out food. So, I recommend not leaving any food on the counter unless you would like me to taste test it for you ;)
I have always dreamed about being someone's number one. I want someone to choose me first...to see me. I do just fine with other animals and am not jealous of them or anything like that. So, please don't misunderstand me. I would do just fine in a home with other pets. What I mean is I want someone to love me as much as they love their other pets. To never disclude me from their activities. To never make me feel like I am not a true part of the family. To never...and I mean...never forget about me. I am a super loyal and loving boy...and I don't think I could handle being forgotten again by the people I call my family.
Are you ready to welcome me to your family? And if so, are you ready to commit to me forever...as I will to you? Then please fill out an adoption app for me at
Once you have submitted your application, it will be sent on to my foster family for consideration.
I am currently residing in Tulsa, OK. I do great on car rides and am fine staying in Oklahoma are road tripping out of state. I try to be a confident and outgoing boy, but sometimes my insecurities sneak in so you may need to help me in the car and show me that you really want me. Once I am in, I ride really well!
My adoption fee is $250.
That will include my DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordetella. I will be micro-chipped, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention
