Greetings from Malone. FTF rescued me from a hoarder house in Tennessee, after the owners moved and left me and 70+ other small dogs to fend for ourselves. The situation there was very bleak, but since arriving in my foster home, I've discovered how wonderful life can be. My foster mom says I'm a real couch potato, and that my favorite activity is snuggling with her-or in between the sofa cushions, when she's not around. While initially shy when meeting new people (just need to gain more experience with company), I warm up quickly and especially enjoy being petted by and giving kisses to kiddos.

So here are a few other facts about me. I'm potty trained, and while I wear a belly band indoors, I do my business outside on a leash. I'm also crate trained and go in with no problem, no barking, and no overnight accidents. I get along fine with my canine foster brother, and I seem to accept cats, too. The only requirement for all FTF adoptions of young dogs is that you sign us for training classes. These will build my confidence and help ease me into a world that is still a bit scary-not surprising, given all the changes I've gone through recently. With your patience, love, and companionship, I promise I'll become the perfect pocket pooch (okay, my legs may be a little long for me to actually fit in your pocket, but you get the idea)!

I'm so looking forward to finally finding my forever home. So if you think we might be the perfect match, please fill out an adoption application ASAP. I've been waiting all my life to meet you!

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.
