Hey der, Timmy here, or as my foster parents call me, Timothy J.

First let me say, I have the most “waggiest” of tails, always going back and forth. I will follow you around, my tail wagging away. But I do have some fear in me, as if you approach me, I will cower and lie down. Which is why I need another dog in the home to help keep building my confidence, and trust.

Speaking of other dogs, I am very submissive, and just back down if confronted. I will play with other dogs. My favorite thing is when my foster dad puts my toys on the deck, and I grab them one by one and run around the yard with them. Be sure to see my video. For an 8 year dude, I have some spunk left in me though it usually doesn’t last long. My 2nd favorite thing is to lie in the grass and roll around on my back. I do have moments of mischievousness. I don’t know how foster dad’s slippers move around the house by themselves.

I do need a fenced yard as I like to be outside, lying in the yard, rolling around, or playing with my toys. And I am not the best at doing my thing on leash, and haven’t done that well on a tieout. I seem nervous on both at times. Oh, and I will lie anywhere, grass, rock, using a landscape block for a pillow, and a hole I made in the mulch to lie in.

I stayed with another foster home that had a cat, and I could have cared less. On car rides I stand nervously for a few minutes, but then just lie down.

My foster home has never crated me, and I have the run of the house while they are gone. In the other foster home I spent a few days at while mine was on vacation, they crated me all day with no issues also. I have never marked in my foster home. But it is just I and my foster sister. The other home had a boy who was bad, and I did follow suit. But my foster parents think I would learn quickly not to do so if that was the situation again.

As much as I have to follow you everywhere, and wag my tail, my foster parents think I did not have the best beginnings. We talked about my cowering already, and I will also not sit on your lap or lie by you. If you put me in your lap I get nervous, and get down. Also if you try to hug/snuggle with me, I also move, except for during a thunderstorm which I am afraid of. During a storm I will lie by you for comfort.

One side note, I had a dental, and I am now missing like 22 teeth. I feel much better. But for the moment my meals are dry food soaked in water, and a little wet food, and soft treats for snacks. They were a lot of back teeth removed, so you might have to soften my food from now on. Along with brushing my teeth to keep the teeth I have left in good shape.

My foster home says I am one of the sweetest foster boys they have had and that I am a lot of fun.
