Allow me to introduce myself. I am Jinny and I will be the Foster Dog of the Week this week. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I am a pretty wonderful gal. I am just about the sweetest little basset you will ever met. I can be a little shy at first, but once I know you are OK I will give you lots of love and kisses. Before I came to CBHR, I had a few litters of puppies, so now I am really enjoying getting all this attention for myself. Not that I am an attention hog or anything like that. In fact, I love having another dog around for company. I have a foster brother right now and I think he is the coolest thing ever! I think he is so great that I follow him everywhere and do whatever he is doing. When he eats, I eat, when he plays, I play, he naps, I nap…you get the picture. I am like the admiring little sister. My foster Mom thinks it is really cute and I don’t think he minds one bit.

I love to go for walks around the neighborhood or at the beach. That’s right I am a beach babe now! How lucky am I that I live near the beach? I just love the beach air and the feel of the sand between my big old basset toes. After a nice walk I love to curl up right next to you for snuggles. My foster Mom says I am the best cuddle bug ever. I am not totally house trained yet, but I am almost there. In fact, I only have an accident once in a while, not even everyday. I wear a very stylish pair of pants when my family goes out, just in case. I like to call them my “fancy pants!” With all the love and patience I have been getting here, I just know I will get the hang of it really soon.

Before you go, let me tell you a little funny story about myself. When I first got here I was given my own bed. I thought having my own bed was so great that when it was time to eat, I would pick up my bowl and carry it to my bed and eat there. Come on, who does not want to eat breakfast in bed sometimes? There is a cute video of me doing this little trick. The smart people figured out that if I had a heavier ceramic bowl I would not carry it around the house. I do still like to take all the dog toys to my bed, though.

So if anyone out there is looking for a sweet, pint-sized gal who would love to have a forever family, then I could be your girl. Perhaps you have another dog who gets lonely during the day while you are gone? I would be great company and I promise to greet you enthusiastically with lots of kisses when you get home. Look me up at www.cbhr.com and maybe you can give me the happy ending that all of us foster dogs dream about.
