Bindi's Interview! She's with Even Chance Rescue still looking for her home!
What is your name?
Bindi! I’m spunky, sassy, and have the BEST ears ever
How old are you?
I’m somewhere around 2 1/2 years old in human years. I was probably born in the fall/winter of 2013.
What do you look like?
I’m the cutest! Well… if you ask my foster mom, at least. I have a dark brindle coat with white markings on my neck, chest and feet. I have one ear that is usually sticking straight up, and one ear that is often flopped over. Who needs symmetry, anyway? I’m around 50 lbs, but on the shorter end than some of my other pitbull friends. I might be a pitbull and boxer mix, but we aren’t really sure. I was a momma before I was rescued, so at first I had a big chest. However, I’m now all fixed up and muscular! People who see me think that I’m a VERY pretty girl!
What do you like to eat?
I love food! My mom feeds me some dry dog food made from bison and blueberries! I also love bully sticks, peanut butter kongs, and any treats my mom gives me! When I was first rescued, I was confused about what treats are and when I get them. I’ve figure it out now, and man..treats are awesome! Sometimes when I’m waiting for a treat, my mouth starts to drool and my foster mom laughs at me!
What kind of personality do you have?
I make people laugh all of the time because I’m funny without even meaning to be. I LOVE all kinds of people and am happiest when I’m sitting next to someone (or even on top of someone!). I’m stubborn sometimes, but my mom tells me it’s because I’m too smart for my own good.
Describe your perfect day:
My perfect day would include a play session with my foster brother, a nap with my foster mom, a car ride, and then chewing on a Nylabone. My perfect day would also include lots of treats. Yum!
What is your favorite toy?
Man, I love toys! I love chewing on Nylabones and antlers. I also love playing with ropes. I have a rope with a big ball on the end of it. I love to throw it up in the air and chase it; I can entertain myself with that toy for a long time! My mom also has a puzzle toy that she puts treats in..if I roll the toy around, treats come out! It’s like MAGIC, you guys!
Do you know any tricks?
On top of being stinkin’ adorable, I’ve been through lots of training as an Even Chance dog! I know how to walk on a leash, sit, stay in a “place”, and lay down. I’m really good about going in my crate when my foster mom is at work, too!
What scares you?
It has taken some time for me to get acclimated to living inside a home, but I love it! A few things that kind of freaked me out were the hair dryer, the vacuum cleaner, and the lawn mower. Sometimes those weird noises take some getting used to. My mom shows me that they’re safe and not going to hurt me, and then I’m okay!
Do you like cats?
Well, my mom wasn’t sure how I would do with cats. So, she took me to meet a one! Man, that was weird. I knew the cat wasn’t a tasty treat for myself, but I also couldn’t mind my own business. I’d probably do better in a home without cats.
Do you have any doggie best friends?My foster brother, Sully (3 y/o), is a pit bull like me. I have followed him around like a little sister since we first met. I want to play with him, but he’s kind of a grumpy old man and tells me no a lot. When I was in training, I stayed with lots of other dogs! I had a ton of fun.
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would it be?Wherever the people are! Most specifically, I want to be lying on my people’s lap. Sometimes when my mom is on the couch, I’ll come stare at her..She knows I’m telepathically telling her “Please let me up there to cuddle with you! Pleeeassee!”
How is your health?
I’m a healthy girl! The day Even Chance rescued me, they took me to meet a new vet, Dr. Johnson. I had a little bit of a rash on my neck, but it went away very quickly! The vet thinks I had a litter of puppies sometime in September of 2015 and I probably had at least one other litter of puppies before that, too. Given my age, this means I may have been bred intentionally and then discarded. No worries, though! I got spayed from my new vet and don’t have to worry about being bred on purpose anymore!
Who do you live with in your foster home and who is your closest companion?
I share a home with two human best friends and a three year old EC alum named Sully. My closest companion is whichever human wants to cuddle with me at the moment.
Where do you hang out when you are home alone?
When I am the only one in the house, my foster parents put me in my crate. I have learned to step into my kennel by myself whenever mom dangles a small treat in the back of the kennel. The first day I went into my kennel, I was confused; I’ve made so much improvement! Sometimes I’ll even run to the crate when I see my mom grab a treat.
Where do you sleep?
I sleep in my crate like a good girl. Don’t get me wrong, I’d LOVE to be in bed with one of my humans, but I also feel safe and secure in my comfy bed in my crate.
What do you love about your foster family?
I love that they have been patient with me and helped show me the ropes about living in a house. They saw potential in me and cared enough to take me in. They are helping prepare me for my forever family, which I’m very grateful for.
What was life like before you were rescued by Even Chance and brought into the welcoming arms of your foster parents?
I was found as a stray in the University City area on Delmar Street. I was brought to a shelter in November, 2015. When I first came to the shelter, I was still lactating. I started to dry up after a few weeks. They never found my puppies, but my foster mom tells me that she just knows they have to be safe somewhere. The people in the shelter liked me and thought I was a sweet girl. I was rescued by Even Chance from the shelter and I love being in a home! My foster mom and a couple of other Even Chance people came to meet me to make sure I was as nice as I looked, and they decided that I am. They loved my spunky and goofy personality. Who wouldn’t?
