Hi, everybody! My name is Blake, and I am looking for my Forever Family. I was relinquished to ESRA because my previous family thought I had anxiety issues. They said I was pretty anxious in my crate while they were gone for the work day. My foster parents are home more often, and they say I have had no problems with anxiety since I've come here.

My foster parents think it will be best for me to have a Forever Home where somebody is around most of the time. I agree! I'd also love to have a Forever Family that will take me on walks, play ball with me, and share cuddles. I've lived with children, so they're fine with me.

I get the run of the house with my canine foster brother when my foster parents are gone. I've caused no trouble and have had no accidents in the house. I love to play fetch! I greet my foster parents at the door with a ball in my mouth when they come home, just so they'll get the hint. I’m inquisitive, too! Every time I hear a noise I have to check it out. I get a lot of exercise just doing that.

I love to snuggle and get lots of affection from my humans. I don’t turn down treats or dental sticks, either.

My foster dad takes me and my foster brother on walks two times a day. Foster Dad says that I walk well on a leash. I like to chase squirrels as I try to keep up with my big brother. I know how to sit, and I come when I'm called (usually).

My foster mom calls me petite because I have short legs and I only weigh thirty-two pounds. The vet says I'm just right. My foster parents say I snore. I can't confirm that because I'm always sleeping at the time!

I really need a family to love who will take good care of me and love me back (and throw the ball for me). Do you think I would fit into your family? I won't take up much room – except in your heart.

Springer kisses,
