It’s important to choose your words carefully when writing a website bio for your foster dog. I mean, you certainly want them to get adopted. So occasionally you might resort to a euphemism or two: “Smiles often” sounds better than “Bares teeth upon approach”. Better to say “Has a soft mouth” than “If you put the steak down, and back away slowly…”. “Displays excellent protective instincts”, will garner more interest than “UPS will no longer deliver to this address”.
None of this has anything to do with our current foster lab Kiki, of course—who promises to unclench my wrist once I finish adding this last part.
