Meet Trump!

Hi again everyone,
I have been in my foster home for about 2 weeks now. I am completely healed from my neuter surgery and have had a bath or two, I really don't see the need for them but my foster mom says they are a necessary evil. Well, at least I get a treat afterward! My skin is looking better but it is unknown if my fur will completely grow back and I may need to stay on allergy medication long term. About a week ago I made an appearance at my first meet and greet. I had the best time and met these little people, I am told they are called children. I was a very good boy when they approached me and rather enjoyed the attention they lavished on me. I have met two cats and two smaller dogs and am still very curious about both, it is definitely an area that will need further exploration as well as patience and commitment on the part of my forever family. I am slowly getting acclimated to the pool and learning how to swim. Ultimately I am still very content to just be where my people are and curl up on a comfy dog bed. Do you have room in your home and your heart for me?
 
Hi Everyone, my name is Trump, aka The Trumpster. I am a very cute 8 year old boy who came from rough beginnings before DLRR swooped in to rescue me. I have been with my foster family about a week now and my foster mom says I am the sweetiest! I am a very mellow boy who is content to relax and be loved. I particularly like to have my head and chest rubbed and will nudge your arm gently if you stop too soon. I also like to sleep in the bed sometimes and am quite the snuggle bunny. My foster family does not have any children, but I am very laid back so I would probably like them, especially if they love on me. There is a cat here and I am really curious about her; I also have a foster brother and sister, both labbies, that I get along with. I never really had the opportunity to play, either with other dogs or toys, so I just observe when my foster siblings play ball. I am very curious about the pool, and think that I may like it, but I can’t swim just yet, as I was recently neutered. My foster family does not have a doggie door but we go out regularly and I have not had any accidents in the house. I do well in my crate and have not bothered anything that I am not supposed to. I have been on a few walks, which is new to me. I pull on the leash initially because I am excited, but I eventually settle down and do pretty well. Still, some training may be beneficial. In addition, I don’t really know any commands, but am trying to learn to sit. I also like to ride in the car. I have some skin problems from being left outside continuously which has caused some thinning of the fur along my back. I am currently taking allergy medication, which may need to be continued along with regular baths when I get to my forever home. I am a smaller guy, approximately 60 pounds, so counter surfing is not an issue and I do not jump. They say I need to gain a few pounds, so bring on the dog treats! I am missing my upper and lower front teeth, which adds to my cuteness and does not get in the way of my enjoying a good meal or snacks. I am really hoping to find a forever home where I can receive lots of love and attention and just be a dog. Will you love me?
