Hey guys, it’s me Vada again. Unfortunately my last home didn’t end up working out, and I find myself back with the good folks at Underdogs. Luckily, though, I am living with wonderful people that are teaching me all kinds of new things. I came back with some new anxiety, sometimes new people can worry me a little, and other times I love being around new people. It’s all about understanding my threshold and my learning process. I am getting better everyday though, at least that’s what my foster mom and this amazing trainer named Sheila with Hudson’s Hounds keeps telling me. I do love having four legged friends too. I am still a young pup, just over a year old, so I need to remember that I have to take breaks in play, but it is just so fun I don’t remember to stop. That can frustrate my friends sometimes, so it’s good to have reminders. As you can probably see, I have beautiful long legs, so long in fact that I can trip over them when getting too excited. So while my beauty is something to be in awe of, my grace still needs some work. I now know exactly what I need in my forever home. Someone who understands, or is willing to treat me well, and by well I mean, lots of yummy treats, a warm bed, someone to snuggle with, and someone that is willing to only be force free with me. I am too sensitive of a girl to be with someone that is super loud, or forceful with their handling. I believe it was Mark Twain that once said, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” and that really sums up how I want to live the rest of my life. If you think you can provide me with the happiness I want, please send my ladies an application. I can’t wait to meet you!

“Keep your face always toward sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” Walt Whitman 1855

As a young pup I travelled across the country to escape the misunderstanding of Breed Specific Legislation. My future was dark in Ontario, full of uncertainty and darkness. I was a young pup then and only understood the secrets my rescuer felt when she took me outside of her home. A short ride on a big bird and I landed in Alberta. The transport was fantastic! I was kissing everyone, napping, more kissing and cuddling. Everyone told me how adorable I was and cooed over me, I flashed them an open mouthed smile and batted my eyelashes like a celebrity. This seems like forever ago so let’s get to the present! I am a teenager now and still learning. My foster family has helped me a lot and made me feel safe but I have a ways to go. I live with my foster sister who pretty much raised me, she taught me about respect and loving the kids! KIDS, those 2 legged crazy balls of fun! I love them, games of chase, and hide and go seek are a regular thing around my house. I’ve learned to be gentle or the games stop, but my puppy enthusiasm sees something shiny and I’m off again. I’m a poet, a sensitive soul, an adventurer, a lover, but I’m also an excited boy still learning the ways of the world. “I exist as I am, that is enough” Walt Whitman 1858 I am looking for a partner, not a leader. I am looking for a fellow poet who wants to stop and smell the roses (smell walks are the best). Support me, teach me but force is never the answer. I want to be inspired, I want to be shown with love and compassion. Underdogs keeps telling me they will accept no less. I have been learning about new dogs, meeting them, playing with them, and will need a home with another dog that is social and comfortable with puppies. I have a strong sense of self and I am able to communicate well for those that can listen (dogs included) but sometimes I can be in my own world. Often imagining up free verse poetry and thinking about “The Song of Myself”. I may chase the cats but I’m just curious about these highfalutin’ animals, they are cheeky, and haughty. How do you make friends with a cat, I ask? I contain many multitudes, I am an individual. We are never just one thing, all the quirks, imperfections and contradictions are par for the course. They make us beautiful and individual.

If you have a poets soul, and want to join me on this adventure I’m here. Waiting.
