Hello, my name is Doughnut. My foster mom says I am cute as a button and sweet and sassy as can be. I am still a baby, so I am learning things every day. Our house is a toy store of so many different things I can play with! I have my favorite toys and my foster mom’s slippers…although she keeps telling me that’s a no-no to play with.
I am not a fan of the cold, but my parents have taught me to potty outside and I’m really good about it. Maybe it’s the “good boy” and sometimes a yummy treat that makes it better for me. I love taking naps after playing and cuddling up to my human is the best!! Especially if I can nuzzle right in your neck.
I sleep in a comfy, warm crate at night after my cuddles on the bed….I get so sleepy from the cuddles I don’t mind being moved into my other bed. I almost sleep through the night but now and then I need a potty break very late at night before settling in all night long. Sometimes I have to stay in my crate while my humans go out, I cry a little bit but then I take a nap and when I open my eyes, they are back, and I am so happy to see them again!
Doughnut has been a joy to have in our home…he is a busy little guy that loves love and affection. Like all puppies, he is teething, and we try to offer toys in place of our bodyparts lol. He is a little snapper with his mouth but he is starting to understand that “nice” means not doing this. He is a smart one, so he does learn quick.
He comes to work with me every day and does well in the car. In my office he will play with his toys or nap in his bed. He has been really good! He is not a fan of his harness yet but he does pretty good once he stops sulking about me putting it on him.
He has a great appetite but we are feeding him in a slow feeder for the time being as he does tend to want to inhale his food. When he is done, he will carry the dish around and if you try to take it, it’s almost a game of I’m hiding it from you! 😊
We believe Doughnut will be a great addition to a family that is willing to take on a busy, smart, funny and loving puppy!
