Pet Name: Pumpkin
Gender: Female
Color: Black
Birthday: August 16, 2018
Sire: Pat C Clement
Dam: Deja Vue
Cats: Not Cat Safe
Sponsor: In loving memory of Breezy our beautiful girl .

Pumpkin has come to AFG with no races.  She is an unregistered NGA pup, but she doesn’t give a hoot about that.  Pumpkin is on the lookout for a family to call her own.  Her brother, Pete, has already found a bed to lay his head on!

Hello! All the cool pups are doing these “learn about me” posts, and I’m definitely a cool pup, so here’s mine!
My racing name is: I didn’t race, I ran right into retirement.
My call name is: Pumpkin
My nicknames are: Pumpkin Spice, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin poo (please don’t tell my friends that!), Punky Brewster
My breed is: Greyhound
My age is: 2
My favorite human food is: cheese and peanut butter. I really love peanut butter frozen in a Kong toy (that’s a hint!)
My biggest fear is: Loud noises like fireworks or thunder.
My favorite thing to do is: Zoom! I love to run! If you have a fenced yard for me to zoom around in, I will be in heaven! I love to jump too! I’ve heard I’m pretty good at it. So only homes that have a fence please. 🙂
What I hate most: Being left out. I like to be in the middle of everything! I will let you know all about it too.  I use my voice…often.
My favorite human is: Anyone who will scritch my ears. I love getting all the pets!
Do I love car rides? I don’t mind riding in the car, but watch out, because I like to help. I’m not sure why my foster mom just doesn’t let me drive. I’m sure I could do it, and probably better.
Do I snore: I don’t know, I’m asleep (who comes up with these questions?!) My foster mommy says I don’t snore, but I do run and make cute little snorting noises when I’m dreaming.
Other fun information: I love to be in the middle of whatever is going on. I’m super curious about everything. I like to taste and pick up everything within reach (I mean, how am I supposed to decide if it’s delicious or fun if I don’t check it out??) My foster mommy says I have a severe case of FOMO. I love to do zoomies around the yard, running is my favorite thing. It’s really the best thing ever! I really like it when I get my foster sisters to do the zoomies with me. I adore squeakies toys! The louder and more squeaky the better. I can squeak and squeak and squeak for hours. You should really try it sometime! I also love ear scritches and I definitely love being wherever my people are. I hope we get to do a meet and squeak sometime soon so I can meet you and you can surrender all your cheese and biscuits to me.
