    Here is my story: Life was great until my owner passed away. I went to live with my owner's children, who had no idea what to do with me (they were serious cat people), so they gave me blankets, food, water and left me in the garage. A friend of ABARC rescued me and now I am in an awesome foster home, waiting for my amazing, forever home.

    I am the Greeting Committee Chairman as I love to say "hi" to everyone! I am very good with other dogs, although I would prefer to be the light of your life. I am very good with cats, but not kids. Car rides are fantastic! I love to go for walks on a leash, exploring is lots of fun. I just love to go anywhere, anytime! My foster mom says I am a great walker. I can do about 2 miles at a time!  My housetraining is really progressing (about 95%),  I will look at my foster mom and then go sit by the door if I need to go out .  My foster mom says I am very sweet and affectionate, belly rubs are a favorite. I am loyal to anyone who shows me love and affection. I am very comfortable in crowds and like other folks. Fetch is a real favorite, I will bring the ball back and give it to you. I also will respond to "go get a toy". While I do not like to sit on your lap, curling up right beside you is the best.  I am a real people pleaser, and the sweetest dog ever. If you are happy, I am happy!  My ideal home is one where someone is home part of the day and I will have lots of love. Do you have room in your heart and home for me?  If so, please go to our web page and apply!
