Hiya! I’m Dream, but I also respond to “Dreamboat,” “McDreamy,” “Dreamsicle,” “cute puppy!” and “poodle-doodle!” I’m all about playtime and my favorite game is tug-o-war. I really love rough-housing, and don’t let my 11 pounds fool you: I can play with the big-ish dogs. PUPPY POWER! I just like to have a good time, kinda happy-go-lucky (and boy do I feel lucky!), and my foster mama says I’m a genius. I try really hard to understand what people want, and I guess I do it pretty quick. I can sit, lie down, sit up, shake, circle, and I can even go potty on command. (I still don’t get why this is such a big deal but my foster mama was really happy about it!)

I’m all about living life to the fullest because, well, I almost died. It’s a long story, but when I was just 7 months old, Animal Control saved me from someone’s backyard when I couldn’t even get up, and they didn’t think I’d make it. I’ve had three major surgeries to repair my liver and remove some bladder stones, and now I’m all fixed up. I do still have a bum liver which requires a special low protein diet for life, and banana chips as training treats. I’ll also need semi-annual vet checkups just to make sure I’m doin’ great. Other than that I’m living my best life just like any other 1 year old pup, and I’m good to go and PLAY! 

My fave pals are other small-ish dogs who like to romp around, but when they’re tired out I can also keep busy with a basket of toys. I love older kids, I love kitties, I love EVERYBODY! Oh! And did I mention that I talk? Yeah, I can hold a whole conversation! You might need a little practice to figure out what I’m saying, but I speak in complete sentences and respond to questions when I’m in the right mood. 

My perfect home would be with a fun-loving family and another small dog I can play with (or kitty), who won’t leave me home alone all day – I really like being with people though I can entertain myself for a few hours. I’m crate trained with no complaining, that’s where I sleep. And I’m quick to learn the routines of the house. You wanna come out and play with me?
