My favorite thing to do is… Eat and play! I love to play with my siblings, my foster family and toys. I also love to run around outside in the grass.
I want my new owner to know… I am a pretty smart puppy and so take the time to teach me! This will help me to follow your house rules and will help me to get out some energy! Like all puppies my age, I love to bite and chew because I am growing teeth, losing teeth and growing new teeth. So please make sure I have enough things to chew on so I don’t chew on things I shouldn’t. My foster family is working on teaching me what is ok to chew on and what is not, including hands and feet, but I will need your help too! I am pretty good at using puppy pads for potty training and use them 90% of the time. So definitely get some of those to use while I am learning to control my bladder. Also, get a dog crate! That will be a great place to keep me when you can’t keep a watch over me.
What makes me special is… I have a nub tail, this comes from my Austrailian Cattle Dog ancestry. In my litter I am 1 of only 3 girls that have the nub tail. My coat resembles tiger stripes and so that also makes me unique. I also love to be held and pet.

List of words the foster mom is using with the puppies…
Not yours… obviously used for anything “not theirs”. I use this when they are chewing on anything they shouldn’t be. I say the phrase and then move them away from the item and give them something they can chew
Sit… self explanatory
No… I use this when they are biting too hard. I move my hand or foot away and say “no”
Potty… when I see them going where they should I say the word over and over and then pet and praise them when they are done
