Hi! I’m Dallas, an approx. five and a half year old mixed breed dog. I’m a very sweet girl, but I must admit, I can also be very timid. It didn’t take me long at all to warm up to my foster parents and bond with them. But as much as I really love my foster parents, what I really want is my very own home and my very own person to love me. We could be the best of friends! Please, don’t make me share my home with any of those cats. And like I said, I can be a timid lady at times and other dogs also scare me, so I’d prefer to be the only dog in the home. A quiet, calm home would be a dream come true!
I do get scared of new people, but it didn’t take me long to learn to trust my foster parents, so if you adopt me, I know I will do the same with you. Did I also mention how much I love my crate? When I first met my foster parents, if I felt scared, I’d go into my crate. But now I just sleep in there when they aren’t home. I’m also a very, very easy, quiet, obedient dog. I really just want to please and make my person happy. I like practicing my training too! I really just love my food and do the cutest little happy, wiggly tap dance when you have a treat or food for me.
My foster parents have fostered a ton of dogs over the years and report that I’ve been a very good girl and quite easy to care for – calm, gentle, quiet and well behaved. I don’t require a lot of exercise and really just want a person of my own to hang out with! I do like running around the yard – that is fun! And I’m even learning that going for walks in the big scary world isn’t as scary as I used to think it was. But, it takes me time to get used to new places, even outside. I’d much rather spend my time indoors. So if you’re looking for a walking buddy, you should probably do that with a human friend – I’m better off as your snuggle buddy on the couch!
MABB has this really cool thing that they send to all of their adopters called the two-week shutdown and I want you to read it. This will make me feel safe when I go to a new home:
Don’t worry, the video above is the real me: happy, silly, lovable Dallas! My foster parents describe me as “completely adorable” because I like to do this silly thing where I roll around and flop over at their feet. I love getting affection from them, but I’m very gentle and polite about it – not pushy like some dogs can be. Most of the time, I’ll just gently lean into them – and of course give them my big, brown eyes. My foster parents say I have one of the most endearing personalities of any dog they have ever met. You just have to be patient with me that first week or two while I’m getting adjusted, but like I said, I learn to trust quickly and once I feel safe, I will be your loyal companion.
If you think you’d like to meet me, go to the website and fill out the application! The rescue ladies will then contact you and set up the meeting. www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. I’m spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. And my adoption fee has been waived and is sponsored by a very generous donor!
