Dog Available -Burton

Burtons sweet face


I’m Burton, and once I get to know you I am the happiest, sweetest, most joyful dog you’ll meet! I’ll wag my tail so hard when you get home that you will not need to sweep the floor! I’ll love to cuddle up next to you on the sofa if you’ll let me, or curl up near your feet when you are working. I’d love to play with a furry sibling if you have one for me. I like to walk with my human, love to race around the yard, and especially enjoy treats (which I take quite gently). I also like to chase squirrels and rabbits and birds, and most anything that moves. I have been known to find all the holes and loose places along the fence, but once I get out I mainly just want to get back into the yard. I like my crate. Most of the time it sits with the door wide open (even when my foster mom is at work) so I can go freely in and out. I'll sometimes choose to go lie down in it, or even hide toys in the cozy blanket there.

However,  I’m scared of strangers, and will bark if they get too close too fast. My foster mom slowly introduces me to my new friends, and once I know that they are good people I adore them too! I wish I could talk so I could explain what happened in my past to make me fearful, but I can’t, so I need an experienced dog owner who can help me continue to learn that most people are nice.

I’d love a forever home that will help me become more confident, and will let me grow into the perfect dog I want to be!
