Hi friends, and hopefully new family! I’m Dunkin’ (you know, like the donuts, cuz I’m so sweet), here to tell you why you NEED me in your family. I’m 4 yrs old, and a big boy at 57#.  Someone threw me away once, but now I’m with these nice people, my foster parents.  They told me I’ll never be thrown away again, and someone will love and cherish me forever.  Maybe that could be you. 

Foster mom and dad say I’m affectionate, enthusiastic, and playful. (Check out my video of me giving dad a high five when he did something good). I learn fast and would LOVE to take some classes and learn more stuff. I have a lot of energy, because I wasn’t treated very well before, and now I’ve discovered life is so fun!  I love humans and dogs, especially when they play with me.  I used to live with cats in my previous home. 

I don’t remember ever having toys before, so I haven’t been too interested in them yet. Did I mention I love playing?  I do have an off switch though and will settle down when playtime is over. I’m pretty strong and get excited when I see squirrels or small furries, like bunnies, on walks.  I pull pretty hard on my leash when that happens, so need some work there. Sometimes I bark at people I don’t know when I see them on a walk, so I need some reassurance from you that I don’t need to be scared. (I don’t bark at anyone when I’m not on my leash). 

Here is my wish list for my forever family:

- Another playful dog in my home
- A fenced yard (remember my squirrel problem?)
- People who will both play and cuddle with me
- Car rides
- A family who enjoys being followed to the kitchen, the yard, the bedroom, and the bathroom.  Foster mom said something about Velcro.
- Long walks
- Food
- Couch
- Love

Other things about me that you may want to know:

- I love food.  I’ll work hard for food. I can learn anything, all I need is food and human attention!
- I’ve just started jogging with my foster mom and dad.  Boy is that fun!  I’d love to be a running partner.
- I’m fully housetrained.
- I’ll go in my crate, but it’s not my favorite thing. I bark at first but am getting better as I learn I can trust my people are really coming back.
- I don’t know anything about small humans because I haven’t met any.  But I get pretty excited and occasionally jump up, so older (bigger) kids would be best.
- I’m neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and on monthly heartworm, flea and tick preventatives.  I’ll need to stay on those in my forever home, too.
- I’m being fostered in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro.

If you agree I’m as great as foster mom and dad think I am, please fill out an application so we can see if we might be a perfect match!

Love and snuggles,

Dunkin’
