Hello! I am Crucio and I have just arrived at my foster home from Mississippi.
I am just a baby and my adopters should be respectful of my small size and puppy needs, such as not being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and teaching me proper manners with play, potty, leash walking, and crating. In return, I promise to try really hard to make you proud and to give lots of puppy kisses! So far, I am doing really well with other dogs, I just like to bite at their ears sometimes!! My foster mom calls me by Sammy and I am learning quickly about potty training and being in my crate, but I'd loooove to sleep with you at night. Sometimes I whine for no reason but it's not because I'm hurt, it more like my talking or sometimes even enjoyment of my toy! I am also pretty good in the car whether you want me on the passenger seat or in the back! I've only met one cat and that cat didn't like me so I might do well with a cat that likes other dogs but who knows! I am certainly growing fast and still need to get used to going up and down the stairs and in and out of the car. I hope you can be patient with me!
Please note that because this puppy is so young, it has only received 2 of the required 3 puppy distemper vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.
This puppy is microchipped and up to date on age-appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives. This puppy is fostered in Newport News, VA and will be ready to go home as soon as 7 May.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
