Hey everyone! My name is Autumn. So a little about me.. Well, I found myself at a shelter in Texas with my 9 puppies not too long ago. They were pretty small when we first got there! We were there for a long time, and it seemed no one could help us get out. The shelter just couldn't keep us around anymore, and they adopted out some of my puppies to make room. Another rescue pulled the rest of my puppies, but I was still there, all alone :( That's when Ruff Start came in! They scooped me up the day before the shelter was going to euthanize me, and I was off to the life I deserved! I couldn't be happier!
Right now, I am living with 3 dogs and get along great with them all! They help me feel more comfortable. My foster mom told me my forever home will have another dog to play with too! I also live with 2 cats and I am nice to them. I like to chase the kitten because she is wild and runs all over and it’s super fun to play! I leave the older cranky cat be, she scares me! There is a sweet little human in the house and I just love him! I don’t care to be kenneled and I have not wrecked anything or had accidents so my foster mom leaves me in a bedroom during the day. I hated this snow business at first but it’s not so bad now. I will play outside for a couple minutes before running back to the warm house! Oh! And I almost forgot to tell you that I like to talk. By talk, I mean howl! When I am really excited I will howl like Chewbacca at you and it makes my foster family laugh. I even taught the little boy how to howl now. I’m not sure that an apartment or home with shared walls would appreciate my excited howling though so we better not do that.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
