And now a few words from me:

Hello! My name is Poutine but you can also call me Tine. I am a rather unique girl in that I am a mix between a French Bulldog and a Dachshund. My foster mom tells me what a good girl I am all the time, so that must mean that I behave well! I am very respectful of my senior foster brother and sisters but when I get a chance to play with a dog my own age I have lots of fun! I also like to play with the resident cat; we have a lot of fun and I know that I need to walk away when he gives me the signal that he is done. I do bark at strangers when I first meet them but I calm down very quickly, especially when they ignore me and just let me come to them on my own time. I am really happy running around, but I am also the ultimate cuddle bug on the couch. If you are looking for a real sweetheart who will love you unconditionally then I am your girl.

And now a few words from my foster family:

Poutine is a very happy little girl. She loves to be around us and will actually jump over the baby gate so that she can follow me around. Poutine started crate training when she came into foster care and she has been a champ! She does very well in her crate. I have to warn you though, when you let her out she is so excited to see you that she jumps around and sometimes needs a few minutes of attention before she will walk around outside to do her business. She has had a couple of accidents in the house but I would have to say that it is because we were not paying attention to the signs when she first arrived. We have also discovered that she will use pee pads. Poutine is very good with other dogs, however I have a feeling that she would pick on any dog that does not stand up to her. If she is with another dog it would be best if they were not submissive.
