I’ve been named Augustus, because I was saved in August.
You see, I’m a 10 month old, male, puppymill dog and my life could have been been very different than what I will get to experience now.
I’m supposed to be a Lhasa Apso mix, but I’m too tall. I weigh about 20 lbs as I’m rather slim. I could have some Schnauzer, it’s a guess.
I had hair pretty long hair however I needed a grooming and a fresh start, so we’re letting my hair grow in nicely. You’ll need to brush me regularly if you want me to look good!
I’m ok with other dogs. I’m in a foster home and making progress every day. I’m getting a little better at discovering this freedom and new experiences.
I’m still a little uncomfortable sometimes. I need a confident leader to show me what to do. I’m good at doing my business outside but still have some occasional accidents.
I’m not dominant at all with other dogs but I’m not submissive either. I’m good at communicating if I need space.
I don’t trust people much yet, so I avoid contact for now but my foster mom says I have so much potential.
I need to be exposed to everyone and everything. I’m very brave and want to learn and experience life.
I just need someone to show me the world and work with me.
I dont react to cats and I don’t bark…for now. Only when I’m a little scared. I have no separation anxiety so you’ll need to NOT “feel sorry” for me and render me needy for your presence. I’m crate trained (duh) and totally clean in it.
