Bark All About It!
My name is Olaf. (My foster mom named me after the snowman in the movie “Frozen”, although between you and me I think his nose is way bigger than mine.) Anyway, Santa, I just want to bring you up to speed on my situation and run a couple things by you. First, rest assured that things are going GREAT since The Local Bark rescued me at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. The people at the shelter took really good care of me for the short time I was there, and were excited to see me move into a foster home with other dogs and play yards and kids and all kinds of cool stuff.
A little about me since we’ve never met: I’m about a year old, and I’m a German shepherd. Word on the street is that I’m kinda goofy. But in a good way. My foster mom said I’m like a teenager who is growing into his body. My foster brother dogs have been teaching me how to play chase without bumping into them so much. I’m what they call a “medium energy” dog, so while I need walking and regular exercise, I don’t need to workout like I’m training for a marathon. That’s a relief because I’d rather hang out and relax while the human children hug and pet me. I really like that and I’m good at it. My foster mom has done a lot of home schooling with me and says I catch on real quick. I’m real good at coming when I’m called. I also do not require a bunch of bedtime stories before I go into my crate at bedtime. Did I mention I also like cats? They’re cool. (As friends…not toys.)
So here’s the deal. I don’t have a long Christmas list this year. Sure I could ask for a new can of tennis balls or a tempurpedic bed (are those the best or what?!), but really I just want one thing:
A forever family who understands how a German shepherd rolls. I need folks who will not only love me, but who will play with me, maybe take me to agility class, and let me have other doggy friends. That’s it. Do you think you can help me out? I know you’ve got a lot on your plate this time of year, but I appreciate you spreading the word about me.
Safe travels this holiday season. If I’m in my forever home before Christmas I’ll be sure to leave out some tasty liver snacks for you on Christmas Eve. I’ll leave enough for those weird-looking dogs that pull you around, too (don’t tell them I said that).
