Tater is the name, cuddling is the game! I love following my foster mom around the house to make sure she is safe and make sure she isn’t going for a walk without me. Walks are one of my favorite things, especially when I get to play in the water! I don’t currently live with other animals, but meeting new dogs and new people makes me very happy. Typically, it only takes a few minutes for me to get distracted by smells and go explore the area (responsibly, of course). I listen to sit, down, stay, and I’ll come but might need to be asked a few times. I love to play with toys and will get bursts of energy but always know when play time is over and it's time to cuddle again! I’m laid back, very easy going, but love to adventure and learn about new smells and experiences.
