My Rescue
Login to Remember your Favorite Animals and Breeds!

Name: MJ

Nicknames: My name is too short for nicknames! Sometimes my foster mom calls me Pibble or Pibble Girl, though.

Sex: Female (spayed)

Weight: 48 pounds and I’m all fully grown.

Good with dogs: I love, love, love being around other dogs so much that I just want to play and cuddle with them all the time. I love to wrestle with my foster brother and sister, we play tug, we chase and then we collapse in a giant pile of pit bull on the couch and take a nap.

Good with cats: I’m a rock star with cats! I’d sure love to cuddle with a cat if they would let me, and I don’t chase the cat I live with.

Good with kids: I love kids, they’re all my size and make really good cuddlers.

Hobbies: Foster mom calls me a velcro dog, which means I like being velcro’ed as close as possible to you at all times. No really, I would even lay behind you on the couch if you were my human. I love to play tug when I can, crawl into laundry baskets to nap and be the cutest thing you've ever seen.

Tricks/commands: I know sit, lay down, down (which means off/no jumping) and I can stay, too. I have been through obedience level 1, and I do really well on walks and don’t pull on my leash. I used to jump up on everyone and everything, but I’m a lot better about that now! I also know “no jump” which foster mom tells me when I’m getting ready to jump on something I shouldn’t. People always tell me I’m really smart and that I’m food motivated too. I love treats, so I guess that’s what they mean. I know some silly tricks too like how to give high fives, high tens, how to sit pretty and stuff like that. People have told me I’d be a great agility dog or really good at nose work.

Crate trained: I like my crate as long as there’s a blanket in there for me to lay on.

Potty Trained: Totally, because I’m super awesome.

Activity Level: Foster mom says I’m a tank dog, which means I will go zoom zoom zoom for about an hour when I wake up, until my tank is empty, then I will pass out and cuddle with you for a really long time. Foster mom also says I need lots of mental stimulation like puzzles and tricky things to eat my food out of. Right now I get to eat my food out of a Kong Wobbler and it’s really fun!

Fun things I do: I love to fly! No really, I like to leap over other dogs, and I’m pretty good at it. Everyone keeps saying I need to take agility classes, whatever those are. If taking agility classes means I get to fly more, I’m in! I’m pretty fearless when I feel safe and comfortable.

Who I currently live with: My foster mom and dad, my foster brother that’s a Shepard Husky mix, my two pitbull foster sisters and one kitty.
