Burrito has a whole lot of love to give!

What’s the longest road trip that you’ve taken? My name is Burrito, and recently I went on a long road trip from Indiana back to Houston! To say that it’s been a rough ride would be an understatement. Luckily, I love being in the car! I was adopted from Friends for Life back in 2019, but in January 2023 my microchip was scanned after I was found abandoned in an apartment in a small town in Indiana. Some nice people jumped on a plane, rented a car, and came to get me. They drove me all the way from the shelter in Indiana right to a vet in Houston and then to the safety of a foster home.

You see, when they found me I was in very rough shape, medically. I had some skin infections, and I was very overweight, but I had to tell them that it wasn’t because I eat too much, but because my knees hurt me so much! Every step I take is painful, so I really prefer to being laying down. Even though walking is very painful, I still go out to potty 2-3 times a day. I’m such a good houseguest! There’s something very exciting on the horizon for me though – I’m getting two knee replacement surgeries. I can’t wait to be able to run and play comfortably again!

Don’t let my sad story confuse you – I am one happy dog! I’m always in good spirits. I love a good belly scratch, I love playing with my toys, and I love giving kisses! Right now, my favorite toy is a stuffed lamb that I got on my car ride back home from Indiana. I also do great with other dogs and cats. I’m very respectful of cats and I love to play tug-of-war with other dogs. I’m sure I’ll have even more fun with them when I can move around easier!

Despite my size, I’m not a very big eater. In fact, my favorite snack is a healthy one – broccoli! My treat weakness is peanut butter. I’ve been told my foster people have been hiding pain pills in it, but I don’t believe them! I’m a little shy around strangers, but if they greet me with a treat, I’ll be ready for pets and kisses within minutes!

I have two big dreams in life. The first is to be able to walk without pain. I know that Friends for Life is busy working to make sure that can happen soon (if you’re interested you can follow my updates on their social media!). But my biggest dream is to finally find my fur-ever home to enjoy all of my happy and pain-free days!
