Hi, my name is Spirit. I get along well with other dogs, cats, and children. I haven't met anyone or anything I haven't liked. I have a lot of puppy energy and am eager to learn new things. I am one smart pup, if I do say so myself. I enjoy snuggles with the humans, too!
I came from Mississippi, and I am ready to find my forever home. I had a rough start in life. I was hit by a car, and I was shot at when I was a stray. But that did not stop me! Despite all that negativity, I am one happy little pup, and I am bound to make you happy too!
I am learning many new things. I hear my name and I come running. I do this thing called "sit" and I am learning how to "wait" for my food to be served. There is also this bell on the back door, and I am supposed to ring it to let my humans know I have to go potty. I am working on that! At night, I sleep in a cozy kennel with a soft, warm bed and a blanket. The humans give me a treat when I go in the kennel and then I fall fast asleep. When my humans leave the house, I also go into the kennel, and I get another treat! I ride well in the car and love to run and play. I am learning how not to beg for human food. It is fun to learn new things because that means more time with the humans who teach me things.
I am currently living with THREE other dogs. There is this little puppy younger than myself. There is this big dog who I LOVE to wrestle with. There is this small fluffy dog about the size of me and she is fun to play with too. There is this cat that I enjoy sniffing but then I leave because the cat is boring. Before coming to Illinois, my foster home had donkeys, chickens and goats and I even liked them!
I do hope you will pick me to be your best friend. I am one cool pup who aims to please. I dare you to come visit me and see for yourself!
