Hi everyone, I'm Johnson, an adorable, happy-go-lucky puppy rescued by FTF from an overcrowded Texas shelter. I love to play, with humans, my toys, or with other dogs (I get along with pooches of any size and need another dog in my forever family to help me with my confidence). In fact, a favorite pastime is being chased around the backyard by my much larger foster siblings-I can run like the wind! Then like a typical puppy, one minute I'm Johnny Rocket, the next I crash and am ready for a snooze, either snuggling in an available lap or curling up on the big dog bed, covered with comfy blankets.

Here are a few other facts about me. I'm a little shy when I first meet new people. That doesn't last long, though, as my natural curiosity and friendliness quickly win out. I'm already potty-trained, and would love a fenced yard to enjoy while I continue to work on my leash-walking skills. Of course, I have lots of other things to learn, too, so signing me up for training classes is a requirement for my adoption. Since I'll do almost anything for a treat, you'll find I catch on fast and thrive on praise. Lastly, because I'm such a little guy, very small children may overwhelm me, at least initially, but I have no problem with older kiddos.

My foster mom describes me as goofy, playful, shy, and lovable. Do I sound like the pup you've been waiting for? Then please fill out an adoption application right away, so we can meet and start sharing a life filled with fun, love, and as you can see from my photo-dress-up!

Love and licks,

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
