Available for Adoption!
Hi! My name is Fontina but I think it's a little cheesy, so my friends just call me Tina. I like long walks and just laying out in the sunshine working on my tan. I'm a curvy girl so my foster mom has me on a diet. I'm not too happy about that because I really love my treats. I'm not a girly girl, I hate mani/pedi's and so far I will only get them done if I'm in a deep sleep. My foster mom says that if I'm awake they will probably have to muzzle me. I'm not sure what that means but I don't think I will like that. My absolute favorite thing is to cuddle under the blankets with my people. When I first moved here I would lay right on top of my foster mom so she couldn't leave me. Now I know that she isn't going anywhere so as long as I'm touching her I'm happy.
I live with a bunch of foster brothers and sisters and most of them are blind, like me, or deaf. When they bump into me I get mad and grumble but I'm all talk, no action. One time I stepped on my pesky little foster brother and he went after me so I just grumbled and held him down with my paw. He knew I was upset so he left me alone. I really don't like it when those other kids grumble at me. I wish I didn't have any other kids living with me but if they were older and just left me alone it wouldn't be so bad.
I love to go places and meet lots of people but I don't really like going in the car unless someone sits with me or I have my bone to chew on. As soon as we get where we are going I am ready to go!
I go potty outside like a good girl, I will even tell you that I want to go out but if you don't take me right away I will go on a wee pad. When we go on a walk I will go tinkle lots and lots of times to let everyone know that I was there.
Don't I sound like the perfect dog? I think I am!
