My name is Nugget, but my people call me “Mr. Nugget,” “Nug,” and “Mr. Nug.” I get so excited when I see my people, and I’m told there’s nothing cuter than seeing my crooked little tail wag all over the place. My favorite place to be is either on your lap, sitting behind you on your chair, or snuggled up under your covers. I also like to squeak my dog friend Ziggy’s rubber ball when we have play dates, and we really enjoy playing together. Cheese is my treat of choice.

My foster dad potty trained me when I came home with him, but I like to leave pee mail at new places. So, you’ll have to watch me until I get used to my new surroundings. I also can be very scared when meeting new people, but I am the sweetest Nug when I feel comfortable and safe. My people want me to tell you that I may be very afraid of you when we first meet, and it may take a lot of cheese and a couple meetings before I am not scared anymore. Sometimes I get along with people right away, but I would like you to be careful with me just in case! I will also need some help getting over my separation anxiety. I cannot be in a home with cats because I like chasing them too much, but I have met a couple other dogs other than Ziggy on a playdate. We got along really well!

A few other things you should know about me: I love snuggles. I will jump up and paw at you for snuggles. So, it’s a good thing I’m so small. I love naps and have been told I have a sweet little snore. I also love my foster dad. Even when he makes me dance. I just want to be near my favorite people getting snuggles– or “Nug snugs.” I would be good in a house or apartment without cats, and I think I would be afraid of children.
