Available Dogs - Pumpkin Spice


Pumpkin Spice Glamour Shot

Hi! My name is Pumpkin Spice and I am a little ball of sweetness and love who is 3 years old and only 17 pounds!  I am very hesitant when meeting new people and will bark at first, but give me a second (and maybe a treat) to warm up to you and you can see how much trust and love I can give out! I cuddle with my foster mom and her roommates all throughout the day and love to roll over and get tummy rubs to get my way with my cuteness.

I love love love going outside and will surprise you by how much energy I have when I see you approaching the leash! I am still working and improving on my leash skills and seem to get distracted by squirrels, other dogs, and people but my foster mom says that after a few classes I have already improved! I do know how to sit and I am practicing every time before I go out to the potty to calm down some of my outside excitement!

I am house trained and have had zero accidents while being with my foster mom! I get along well with my smaller foster sister. My foster mom has had other bigger dogs stay with us a night or two and I did not like that very much, I prefer to be the bigger dog (or the only dog) in the room! Cats really intrigue me as well to the point where I chase and scare them so they can be distracting to me! I tend to get overwhelmed by larger crowds, especially if most of them are strangers. Because strangers are still intimidating to me, I let my foster mom know I’m worried with a little growl. That way she’s aware of how I’m feeling and can help me and the stranger meet in a way that’s not so scary. I mean, I really don’t want people to touch me without my permission - which seems pretty normal! Let’s get to know each other before all the touching begins!

I sleep very well at night, either in my dog bed or with my foster mom. I sleep all the way through the night! I also love playing with smaller tennis balls because I'm so small. I would love to have my own little family to snuggle and play with. One with structure so I can continue learning and growing to be the best little dog to my furever family!
