HI everyone, my name is Goatee but my foster mom calls me baby girl. I came to Minnesota from
Laredo TX, boy is it cold here. And you have this white stuff called snow. Its kind of fun to walk in but I
really like to lick it. I think I am about 4 yrs old, and foster mom says I am going to be spayed soon. Not sure
what that is by she says it so I don’t have any babies.
My foster family is a mom, dad, dog, and cat. I really really like my foster mom and dad. They pet me, give me
food & water every day, I really like that. When they say things like sit, & lay down I get treats when I do
it. They take me outside for walks and I love showing off how good I am on the leash. I get treats for that also. I am learning if I am good and listen I get treats – not
gonna lie that is the best.
I am not real sure of my foster sister they call Freyja, She has lots of
energy, really I am still getting used to everything here. Mom says Freyja wants to play with me, but I
don’t know what play is. So I just watch. Mom gives me things she says to play with, I take them, but
just let them lay by me. Mom says that is ok, and I will learn to play in time.
Now my foster brother Bart, he is something different. She calls him a "cat." He looks like a squirrel to me, so
I growl and I want to chase him. Mom isn’t sure what I would do if I catch him, so she tells me “No”
“Leave it” and “Uh ah” I am learning that means don’t chase the cat. I did let him come and sniff
me when I was sleeping. But don’t think I want a cat in my forever home. It is to tempting to see what
would happen if I could chase and get it.
Mom says over all I am a very nice dog. I love being petted so much that I snuggle right into who ever is
petting me. I really like crawling on your lap and falling asleep, it makes me feel safe. I like to eat my
meals all by myself, so I know that I get to have it all. So, mom puts me in my kennel. I take treats very
nice, I lick them out of moms hand, so its 2 treats in one.
I am not sure about kiddos as I have never been around them, there was an older one who petted me and it was ok. Not sure if I would like living with kids, maybe with
older ones how don’t move fast. Other dogs would be ok if they are my size, but not smaller. I need
someone who will keep working with me on manners, playing, and getting used to other animals.
