Hi everybody, Albert King here to tell you about me. It's taken me such a long time to learn how to use this computator thingy so I could let you know all about me. You see, I had to learn everything about everything. From the first I can remember I was in a cage. Probably as a young lad when I should have been running and playing, I was in a cage in this place called a Puppy Mill. There were lots and lots of dogs there and we were all in cages. There were lots of momma dogs and puppies everywhere, all in cages. We slept, ate, "went", and just lived in these cages... The only time I ever got out of my cage was when I got to go play with the girl doggies so they could have more puppies...
One cold winter day after about 4 years of living in my cage some people came in and said they were there to help us. They started taking care of us and moved us to a temporary shelter they had set up. After a couple of days some nice ladies picked us up and we went on a long long ride to a place called Austin. When we got there some more nice people started loading us up to take us to our new foster homes. I didn't quite know what a home was but I was too tired and scared to care.
When my foster mommie got me to her home and was able to see me and how scared, dirty, and stinky I was, she sat down with me and just softly sang pretty loving songs to me. That made me not so scared anymore. I got cleaned up and bathed and groomed but still liked to hang out in my crate- it's where I felt safest. There were other nice doggies in the house and though they were friendly, I wasn't quite sure how to act with them. There were no girl doggies there to play with and I didn't know what to do about other doggies that weren't used to playing like I was.
After a while I began to feel better and more comfortable in this new place and even started making friends with these new doggies. They were very nice to me and I really began to enjoy just being able to hang out and play and wander around sniffing all the new things in this new world I never knew existed when I was living in my cage. My foster mommie had to guide me and teach me everything I needed to know to be able to live in a real home with my own family. It took awhile but now my foster mommie says I am ready to move on in my life to my own home with my own family. One thing she didn't have to teach me was how to be sweet. She says I am one of the sweetest fuzzy faces on four feet she has ever seen.
I like other doggies- all kinds, shapes, sizes, and colors- and I don't care if they are boy or girl doggies- I live with 3 boy doggie foster brothers and love them all. I love children, teens, adults, men, women, everyone and everything. I don't know what this thing called a "cat" is but I am sure I would like it too. I've not met anyone or anything that scared or frightened me and I've learned that this big bright world outside of my cage is a pretty good place to be. I have learned to be reliable in the house- I don't chew or bother anything and don't need to be crated when foster mommie leaves. My crate is always available if I want to go take a nap or just hang out and I will go in it if asked to. I am quiet at night and whenever I am in the house and don't even bark outside unless something gets too close to the fence. And then I only bark to say "hi, do you want to come over and play?". I am friendly to everyone and just love this big new world. I would have never known about it without CSRA helping me out by getting me out of my cage. Without them, I would have lived my whole life in my cage...
From Albert's foster mom: Albert is a very sweet, calm, quiet, and very loving boy who has come such a long way from when I first got him home. He is good with other dogs, kids, youngsters, oldersters- anyone or anything. Albert just loves life and this big world. He's always up for a walk or sitting in your lap or lying quietly at your feet. He rolls with life very well. You couldn't find a better family member than this little guy. He seems to be adaptable to any situation with a waggy tail and a sense of adventure. You just can't go wrong with this little guy.
