BRIT #: 20130206
Age: 1.5 years
Weight: 23.0 pounds
My name is “Justin.” That would be Justin Brittany (not Bieber). The folks at BRIT named me and I really like it. Don’t you love my perfect red mask? Quite distinctive I do believe! I’m not a baby, but you might think I act like one. The people who turned me into the shelter said I was one and a half years old. My vet says I need to gain another 5 or 6 pounds – I am small boned, but am underweight.
I’m also sweet but timid – I haven’t had a lot of life experiences. I was dumped at the shelter with my sisters “Jolene” and “Jillie.” I love to play with them – they are my best friends. I don’t know anything about my past – conveniently I also have amnesia.
I really want to trust and love, but I’m afraid – don’t know much about people (or life for that matter). Please be patient and loving with me and I’ll be the sweetest and most loving Brittany in the whole world. I do like other dogs (at least my sisters), not sure about cats or children.
Update from Foster Dad:
Justin is a great dog and has come a long way in the short time we’ve had him! He still jumps at loud noises and drops his body low, but once he is up he is very calm. He really likes his open metal crate, but tends to get hesitant with the plastic crate. We call him shadow because he follows me everywhere and is actually sleeping right next to me now. The biggest step he made was when the Verizon guy came to install my cable, he ran right up to him. I found out tonight he is still very skittish around sudden changes like noise or people, but he quickly moves to investigate the new surroundings. He is still not playing catch, he actually hides under the lawn chair while we play, but he runs around when we are not throwing anything. He loves playing with our two dogs.
I am looking for my forever family. Are you looking for someone like me? Maybe we can get together. I’m still pretty much a puppy and have puppy ways – however, I am sort of on the calm side – not saying that won’t change as I get comfortable in my new life.
Justin is up to date on his shots, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. He will be neutered and microchipped in a few days – and will be ready for his forever home.
