Hi, I’m Payton! I’m a 3.5 month old, 25# lab/beagle (maybe?) mix and I’m sweet as pie. I started out life living outside under a house which wasn’t too much fun and I’m grateful to be an inside girl now!
I’m super spunky and happy 24/7. If you want to play, I’m your girl! I love making new friends and then jumping, running, and playing with them. So far I have experience playing with other pups from 8-35 pounds and I love them all. I'm trying hard to go potty outside but it isn't easy. I’m learning, and it’s a process, so I’ll need training and patience. (Three-month-old puppies can generally only wait about 4 hours before they need a potty break.)
I’m looking for an active family. I’m ready for walks, toys, hikes, and outside time. I like a good nap as much as anyone, but only when I’ve used up all of my energy. If I don’t get enough exercise I might get into mischief. I’m a snuggly girl and I love to sit in your lap on the couch while you rub my belly. Playing tug is one of my favorite games, and I also love to play chase! I’d love to have older kids. Just remember I’m a growing girl and have lots to learn.
I like to play rough and I explore with my mouth, so I’m probably not great for toddlers. I’m in a stage of puppy biting, and that means I don’t always know what I can chew on and what I can’t. With constant redirection to toys I’ll grow out of this stage but it is going to take some work to help me learn. I’m responsive and I’m a quick learner. I already know sit, down, and high five (pretty impressive right), but I’m still learning how to walk on a leash. I pull really hard so I’ll need lots of patience and continued training to work on my manners. I get a little nervous when cars pass by on the street, but that’s something I’m working on too.
If I sound like the perfect puppy for you, apply for me, Payton! I can’t wait to meet you and I’m sure we’ll be best friends!
p.s. My own kitty friend would be a bonus! I love to play with them!
