Modeling some Jammies

Modeling some Jammies

  • Favorite Treats: Liversnax, Pig Ears, anything that anyone else has and I don’t. Also, popcorn when my dad sneaks it to me.
  • Favorite Possession: A granola filled bone bigger than my head.
  • Tricks: Sit, Lay Down, Dance, and I’m currently being trained in the art of shaking hands.
  • Hobbies: Going to doggy daycare, squirrel watching, playing with my dog brothers, licking everyone A LOT, snuggling, barking at everything, being a watchdog, and sprinting laps around the living room. Also, chewing on things like mom’s glasses, earplugs, tissue, vacuum cords (that thing is EVIL you know), fan cords, acorns, drywall, anything that is accidentally left on the floor, and dog bones. I also dabble in some modeling in my free time.


  • Canine Siblings: Murphy and Beau
  • How I found my home: My pet parents found my litter-mates and me on Petfinder. Mom came to meet us and I was on my way home with her shortly after. Good thing because, I was pretty sick and needed some special attention. But after meeting my new vet and getting some medicine for kennel cough – I got better and am now living the good life!
