I am a late bloomer, little over 2 years old but I still think of myself as a pup. Cautiously exploring the world around me. I figured out the indoors, the other dogs, and PEOPLE! Outdoors is still a big mystery, but I have started running big circles now. When I first came here, I used to just stand, turn in a circle and scan the neighborhood. I watch moving objects far away, and I guess that is the reason I have not yet been allowed to run off leash here, I might want to investigate. But actually, I am very home oriented now, and especially in cold weather I make my rounds and return to the door with 5 minutes or less. 

After all I am a "Southerner", born in South Carolina, turned into a shelter once I reached 60 lbs. When I was brought to this here fosterhome, I was a bit skinny and always hungry. I think I will never be relaxed around food. I watch calmly while the food is prepared, but when it is actual feeding time, I start an excited  dance and yodle. Nothing short of locking me out onto the deck  - or a big bowl of food - will calm me down. Growing up to be a big dog down South was not easy.

I love people, and other dogs. Curious about cats that I occasionally see from a distance. 70 lbs, housetrained, spayed, heartworm free, walk calmly on leash.

Spring will come, and maybe this is the year you will discover me in cyberspace!

Thank you Susan for saving my life. Because my "owners turned me in to AC and said that I am "food aggressive" - I almost lost my life that day..
