Hi, my name is Tootie, I’m 4yr old, 20lb, more on the medium to small size, originally from Louisiana. I don’t remember much about the tough life in Louisiana but the St. Louis Stray Rescue staffs are the God send angels. March 3rd, 2017 has changed my life! I moved into my foster home and my foster mom can’t stop bragging about how smart I am! Just the first two days I’ve learned sit, come, and I have no problem with going into the new crate. By the 4th day, I mastered some thing human called “doggie door”. I do enjoy walking and when I see my fellow friends I nod or exchange eye contact without pulling or charging, who likes to be chocked by collar anyway. Please be patient with me when I’m in a new environment, it might take me a few days to get used to it but I usually catch on pretty quickly. The human doors are a bit intimidated, they look like huge trap doors to me.
I have to say that ever since I’ve moved to STL, I’ve received so much love from these St. Louisans, no matter children or adults I love you all and just want to give you kisses! I love some play time, too. But for some reason, I don’t understand the concept of the squeaky toys. My favs are knotted robes, tennis balls, rawhides and any treats are always welcome! Of course, taking good care of my little puppy teeth is also important. I love to “brush” my teeth before I go to bed. Being healthy is a challenge right at this moment. These kind human friends are trying to get my health back to normal and I can’t wait to find my forever home!
P.s. I will rather take care of my business outside and not in my crate, I will definitely inform you when I need to go. Plus, I’m a lady, I like to go behind the bushes instead of in the public places. Please considerate my privacy.
PLEASE NOTE THAT TOOTIE (SLP) IS IN A FOSTER HOME, NOT AT OUR SHELTER.
PLEASE CHECK STATUS BEFORE FILLING OUT AN APPLICATION TO MAKE SURE THERE IS NOT AN ADOPTION PENDING.
