Dog Story: Hola! Me llamo Pau and I came to Florida from Spain, where Pau means little in the Catalan language. You could call me little in size since I only weigh around 30 pounds, but I am very big in personality! I’m a joyous bundle of activity always ready to go with full-speed Britt energy. If there is running, playing, small creatures to chase or any kind of adventure to be had, I want to be a part of it. I am a handsome orange roan French Brittany with a wagging tail that’s always twirling around with me. My foster mom says I’m the perfect running buddy plus lap dog, which sounds like a great combination for anyone who enjoys young Brittany pups! At my foster home I’ve had so much fun keeping super busy every day. We go running and hiking on nature trails to chase little critters and socializing at the dog park, but please watch me carefully because I have a bad habit of eating grass that gets me very sick! I also love learning new tricks! So far I’ve mastered lots of commands like sit, down, drop, wait, and place. I love my crate and sleep tight in my cozy doggy den for night time and when mom is out. I’m a little shy and timid meeting new people, especially little humans, but once I open up, I’ll never be able to get off your lap. Little humans are confusing though, and I especially don’t like them too jumpy. I love humans, don’t get me wrong! We just need to grab a quick drink or a walk together for me to really get to know you! I also get along with other doggo friends and have gone to work with foster mom at the veterinarian’s office. I love to play tag, but I try to stay out of trouble when buddies are too ruff with me. Danger is not my middle name, so I follow my foster mom around at all times. I like to pretend to be her paw-dyguard and stand really close to her. The only time I’m okay with not seeing her is bedtime when I can go into the crate to have some me-time. I definitely need a home without cats, since I have a very high prey drive and get totally focused on chasing kitties and small critters. I have a cat roommate who I love to play with, but he doesn’t seem to like me very much. I try to slide in underneath the couch really slowly next to him in order to woo him, but he still doesn’t accept me. As long as I have zoomies in the house, I don’t think any cat would really like me. Whenever I’m sitting patiently for my foster mom to give me food or open the door, she laughs at me because both of my lips get stuck underneath my teeth. She says it looks like I’m smiling and that’s why it takes her longer to give me food, but I know it’s because she’s distracted by my cuteness. Lately my foster mom has been grabbing my paw or pointing a finger at me saying bang. I don’t understand what she’s doing but I like getting the treats afterwards. Don’t worry though, I don’t go completely mutts! I love cuddles and napping on the couch with the fam. I adore attention and affection from people, but with my bouncy puppy energy will do best in a home with older children. If you’re an active family ready for an exercise partner for workouts, taking snuggles and playing outdoors with me fur-ever, you might want to consider welcoming me to brighten up your home. H Pau was rescued as a stray in Spain and arrived at his new foster home in Florida, full of happy smiles. He is a total puppy in a petite package and will need an active home with a family ready to give lots of time and exercise to a young Brittany. Pau is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, leishmania and heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventive.
