Dumbledore's About Me:
I love to sleep and I love to walk, but mostly I love being with you. I like to follow you around the house and lay near where you are. I like to cuddle at your feet as you sleep or beside you on the floor, but I won't invade your personal space and lay on top of you. You can pet, snuggle, kiss and love on me as you please, but I will give you a warning if you ever go too far. Speaking of too far, I am not fond of being brushed or having my hair picked at. I know I have a lot of it and it has to be brushed, but it really upsets me and I will make lots of noise so that you know. My foster mom says I need one person holding my leash and petting my chest while another brushes or blows out my coat, but even then I will complain and need breaks. (Mom Note: He will bite after several vocal warnings and head jerks if you continue for too long, so please listen to his body language or let a GROOMER know so they can take proper precautions). I also complain during baths, but I don't mind them much at all. I really just don't like my fur being taken from me.
Much like a husky, I can be VOCAL from time to time. For example, when I am rubbing up against things or wallering on the carpet, I will grumble and grunt. That's because it feels good and I love it! I can be vocal when I want something, but you might not always know what I want and that's ok, because I don't always know what I want! It's something we can figure out together! If you are behind a closed door, I will lay at the door and lightly whimper/whine until you come back out or let me in. However, that doesn't bother me nearly as much as being confined and left alone for long periods. I will howl and cry if that happens because I don't know where you are or if you are coming back.. And I miss you. Other than that, I am quiet as a mouse.
My foster mom has a doggy door and while I love being able to go out whenever I need to go, I had a hard time figuring it out at first. So I am HOUSETRAINED, but please work with me on what I need to do so that I can go out as needed. Whether it is a bell on a doorknob, a doggy door, or just finding you, I promise I can learn. I do love food and will watch closely any time it is near, but I listen well and I will give up after a few minutes if told no. It is the only time I will try to invade your personal space, but with a gentle reminder I will stop. This means food can't lie around whether in my bowl or on the counter, because I will try to eat it all. So monitor when I eat and keep food out of my reach. My foster mom has a trash can that disappears and I don't know how to get to it, but I think if I could then I would find some good things in it.
