Russell - playing with the big dogs now!

We recently got an update from Russell's foster family on how the playful guy is doing. We often discover personalities of our foster dogs start to emerge while in loving care of their foster homes:

"Russell came from a home where a large dog intimidated him everyday. He did not like any big dogs and would bark and bark at them. Well, as the story continues, he has met Charlie(a yorkie) & Winston (a big black lab ) He has become used to them now, the barking has subsided! Last weekend the dogs came to visit. Winnie runs like the wind in our big backyard, Charlie always follows. This time Russell joined in! Running back and forth was Russell with his short little legs. This went on for at least 10 minutes, that is a long time for senior who’s legs are less than 6”.

He had so much fun, we could almost see him laughing as he ran with that big dog!!! Remember a small dog lives to an old age. He’s 81/2 years old but once in awhile he’ll surprise us with a burst of energy. He has come so far in the 2 1/2 months we’ve had him. He’s a loyal little man who just wants to land in a good home... consider meeting him."
