HI! I’m Jacob! My previous family said I was scared and would tinkle all the time, and yes, I admit it — if I get scared I do tinkle, but its rare! I only did it two times so far here, and I’ve been back a couple of weeks now. My foster mom says I am ‘building confidence’ here. When they say “Jacob Come!” in a firm voice, that scares me. But when they say ‘c’mon Jacob’ in a sweet voice – or whistle, I don’t get as scared. I’m working on it! I do love to behave and listen to my commands!
They have a farm here, and I have a huge open space to run and play in – I get scolded when I run into the woods way out back to chase deer or ducks, but I really try not to. I now know that ducks and chickens are not for chasing, they give us eggs for our dinner. Who knew!!!?!? I will keep trying to listen better and stay out.
One little problem my old family had with me was that I just really do not like the car at all. My tummy gets all upset and I drool and then lose my lunch. Foster mom says that these little tiny car rides we take are for “fun”. I totally disagree!! The other dogs here do think it/s fun, I sure don’t understand why! Everyone says “its OK Jacob, this is fun” but tell that to my tummy! It disagrees completely! I have had two rides to the end of the road and back that I didn’t throw up on…so I think my tummy may be getting used to it. At my foster home, there are old cranky big dogs I don’t play with, and young small fun dogs that I love to play with! https://youtu.be/ux3_8BKpF9w
But I will not share my food with those dogs- and I tell them that exact thing. Foster mom makes me eat my dinner on the other side of the kitchen! There’s even kitties here, I had kitties at my old house too! When they go running through the house its very hard not to chase them. I don’t want to hurt them, but they are so fast I have to try to catch them! One smacks me back -that mean kitty!
I am a very good boy in the house! I need to work on some minor issues, but I don’t potty in the house, I don’t eat the rugs or furniture or anything, but I do like to stand in the windows to see outside – but foster momma says NO NO OFF. Does she not see that I’m short?? I have to see out somehow and I’m so long that it really helps when I stand on things to see outside. Oh – and speaking of being short, so is my actual dog sibling that lives here. Our mom was the prettiest Rottweiler ever! They said dad was too, but they fibbed! I think dad was the neighbor dog who was short, long, and has funny shaped legs with big shovels on the end. They said those are made for digging. This makes sense because digging can be fun! Bassett maybe is the word? But foster mom says I have a coat like a Shepherd. I don’t know who that is! So, the long and short of it is – I am a young adult male with lots of life left in me and still a tiny bit of puppy. I am a sensitive guy who isn’t into loud noises or kids, but I like dogs and cats and playing with my rope toys and all of our human and canine visitors. I LOVE to run! I love to play tag! Best part of my day is snuggle time. I LOVE to snuggle on the couch and foster mom says she is spoiling me by letting me sleep in the bed too! I love it, I love to snuggle!
I can go in a crate and I don’t mind it too much, but if I could get a home with no crates after I settle in, I would be OK with that! Foster mom says to email her if you have any more questions. She loves to talk about me, so if you think I would fit into your family, please let her know! Its a lot of fun here, but I really miss having my own family.
