People wonder how I ended up in Lake County as I came registered to someone that lived in DuPage County. Unfortunately, the microchip’s information was not updated, so I was officially declared homeless, and when no one came looking for me, I came here.

I’m quite overweight, about twice my ideal weight. That’s probably why I don’t really like to walk too much. But I do love belly rubs.

I spent some time in a foster home where my foster family said I was completely housebroken, very easy-going and loving, never barked ... and know the word “treat.” I get along with dogs and spent some time living with a small dog, so would probably even do well with cats.

Pretty much every weekend, you can find me hanging out with some Save-A-Pet volunteers at various events.
