Biography

Hi everyone,

I’m Nose-fur-atu but go by many names such as Nose, Nosey, and Babosey.

Unfortunately my mom moved to an apartment where there isn’t much space to stretch my long legs. She also works a lot and am a very needy pup who misses her greatly when she’s gone. My best friend, Enzi, lost her battle to cancer last year and has made separation even harder. I’m crate trained but it’s very lonely now without her. I’ve started taking meds to help me not feel as anxious and they seem to help me some.

I am super sweet, loyal and really love meeting new people. I will bark at them if I’m in the car or can’t see them but once you’re near and I know you’re cool I’m really just a big softy. I love to cuddle and be little spoon or curl up behind the crook of your legs. I haven’t had much experience with little kids so I’m not sure how I would do around them and kinda big so I’d probably do best with kids I can’t easily knock down. I can be aloof at times; some would say I’m like a bull in a china shop. 🙈

I have lots of energy and love to alert my family (and neighbors) of any shenanigans a foot. I’ve protected our neighborhood from many squirrels and delivery drivers. I would do really well in a home with a BIG back yard with lots of room to run and explore. I would excel with a family who how has time to play ball or do agility training 🎾. I am house trained and know many commands (sit, stay, wait, heel, halt, etc). I am a smarty and really like to be mentally stimulated through training or with enrichment toys.

I have trouble making dog friends. I want to play but my manners make it tough and have only had a handful of dog friends. They’re usually the much calmer ones than me so if I would need slow introductions with pups who are pretty mellow. I can be a little jealous at times especially with cats so I’d prefer to be in a home without them. I can be possessive of food especially around other animals.

I know my mom and aunt love me so so much and that this isn’t an easy decision but I know they just want what’s best for me. I’m hoping to find a family that is willing to stay in contact with them so they can check in on me from time to time just to see how happy I will be with my new family. I can’t wait to meet my forever family.

Lots of love
Nosey 🐾
