Howdy! My name is Bounce, and I am a fine little guy looking for a home of my very own. Let me tell you a bit about myself....maybe I am just the boy you are looking for!
I came to the rescue from a rural shelter...I was picked up as a stray, so not much is known about my background. I am about two years old. Although I was not quite sure what I was being incarcerated for, I kept up my good spirits and was friendly and polite to anyone who would spend a bit of time with me. The shelter said I am a really nice boy, so they reached out for help.
I am most likely a shepherd mix....I have a fairly short coat, and my foster mom says I do not seem to have the traditional double coat. I am a nice mid-sized dog....weighing in at about 50 pounds. A perfect size! Another fun fact- my foster mom says I shed very little compared to some of her other dogs...apparently this is a good thing! I am almost solid black, with a bit of white on my chest and toes....I like to call it the tuxedo look! My ears stand up, and I have most of the classic shepherd features.
As for my personality! Well, that is where I shine! I am a very sweet boy, and am eager for attention. I love all people, men, women, and children. I am an equal opportunity attention seeker!. I get a bit excited once in a while, and will jump straight up in the air with all 4 legs at once....sometimes I can do a half turn in mid-air....I think that is why foster mom named me Bounce. I know how to sit, and I am a medium energy dog. I like to play in the yard and trot around, and I am trying to learn what to do with these things called toys. I really prefer just staying near my person and getting a few pets or back scratches. I have some doggie friends too. I seem good with most dogs, but I can be a bit pushy with very hyper dogs. I like medium energy dogs such as myself.
I am a fairly quiet boy too, and thrive on routine. I am crate trained and housebroken. I am very food motivated, and would probably be very easy to train. I can be an only dog or I could live with another dog...I am not too picky!
I would love a family that would like to take me walking or hiking and let me just enjoy life and in return I promise lots of love!
So what do you think?? Thanks for reading and I hope to meet you soon.
PS: I still need to go through heartworm treatment...I am hoping to start that soon, and then I will be eagerly awaiting my new family!
