Hi! My name is Puppers, a name I have known my entire life as it was registered on my microchip, I was brought in as a stray with my buddy, who was more well-adjusted than I was. Even though we were chipped, no one reclaimed us. Because I have a unique personality, I was transferred to the rescue to help find the right home for me. I am 12 yrs young, you would never know that's my age hanging out with me. As an individual, I am a very confident dog. In fact, I like to be a big dog with all four on the floor, meaning I am not one to be carried as arm candy. Having said that, I mostly put on a big show, I actually love to be held, pet, and loved on once I know your intentions. I want to be your buddy, follow you around, watch what you are doing, share your lunch, and be treated as one of the guys. What I don't want is to be babied, fussed over, or toted as an ornament but I do appreciate being warm in a nice sweater or jacket. If I'm uncomfortable or not in the mood to be picked up, I am very, very vocal expressing my un-want for what's happening. Just be patient with me and I will calm down. I like when you offer me coffee, tea, or even orange juice. For some reason, these words calm me down quicker. Right now I am looking for a home with patience while I learn the lay of the land yet I'm treated like the new kid on the block, a roomy of sorts, a place where I can just be me. Even though I do get along with other dogs that are my size, as long as they let me be, I can live with other dogs close to my size or I can be the only dog. Sorry, but kids and I are not a good combination. Oh, something you may want to know, the rescue has had all of my medical taken care of. That's right! I was neutered, I have since received all my shots, I was dewormed, I had a dental done, AND I had a large mass removed from my back end. You can't even tell it was ever there - how great are they!?! - It must have been painful because it is assumed that is where some of my snarkiness comes from. Once I know there is no pain, I let that behavior to protect myself go. Now I am happy, healthy, and pain-free! What I'm trying to say is that, while I am still a cute little dog, I want to move in and be a companion, a buddy, a 'let's just hang out and watch movies' kinda dog. If that's what you are looking for, are you willing to take a chance on me? If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below my bio on the rescue website, here is the link - https://www.smallbreedrescue.org/Home/AnimalDetails/9397 Due to home introductions that are part of the adoption process, we can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near North County, San Diego, California at this time.
