Hi!  My name is Muks, and could You be my Forever Family?

But first, I have to tell you something a bit embarrassing from a dog’s perspective.  I couldn’t believe when I read in Wikipedia’s ‘Wiktionary’ that the definition of my name is “the sound of someone falling over”!  They said my name is an onomatopoeia, whatever that is.  How can this be?  I never fall over!  In fact, I love to be the dog on the go whether it’s hiking with my foster dad, playing outside with the kids, chasing balls in the backyard, or going to training and learning all about how to be the best dog I can be!  The only time I admit to falling over (well…rolling over, actually) is when belly rubs are coming my way.  And if you scratch my tail, I’ll even do my special little happy dance for you!

At first I was a little nervous meeting other dogs as I hadn’t been around a lot of them.  But with training and help from my foster dad, I’ve been told I’m more confident, respectful, and friendly with dogs.  In fact, I’ve become quite the young man.  And I’m way well-behaved in the home – no counter surfing, no jumping on furniture, and I give people their space when they have work to do.  Yay, me!  And I’m not sure I want to live alone.  Since I’m such a nice young man but could still stand some confidence building, I wouldn’t mind living with the right female dog, a good-natured pal I could play with and continue to learn from – like the all-important mission of dogs the world over: how to convince people to give us more treats!  And since I’m not quite two years old I have a lot of energy to burn and would love it if you’d take me for training, maybe explore doing scent-work, agility, or other fun stuff to do.  And when the day is done, just roll over for those belly rubs.  I can’t wait to meet you!
