I’m Edison! I am so lucky that my new friends at BAGSR got me out of the shelter! I didn’t get to live like a cherished companion dog until my journey with my rescuers began. Although they probably first noticed my super cool multicolor coat, I am so grateful that they also noticed my loving and inspirational spirit.

I may be about 7 years old although it’s hard to tell exactly and one thing is for sure, I play like a puppy and have lots of energy to do fun stuff! Some of my teeth are missing and some are broken. I’m still a little underweight but my foster mom has been feeding me special food so I'll get to a weight that is healthy for my tallish physique. I have a bit of hair loss on my back but that is also resolving with my new healthy diet.

Being inside a home is new for me and I love, love, love it at my foster home where I get to be inside, have a soft bed and watch TV; I’m fascinated by that thing!
Even though being inside is new for me, I do have very nice house manners.

I have a calm demeanor and am very friendly. My foster mom says I’m somewhat of a goofball-haha. I so enjoy meeting new friends and I get along well with other dogs. My foster family has lots of animals-horses, goats, chickens, dogs. One of my favorites is Frank the goat. I tried to chase the chickens but when I learned that was not acceptable behavior, I stopped. I correct easily, am a very good listener and want to please. I also love treats and take them gently.

I am learning my basics including walking nicely on leash; I'll even put myself into the heel position before I am asked. I will make a beautiful walking partner. I’ll need a family who will continue to teach me things and help me practice my new skills. Dog school would be great for me too; I’m sure I would love it!

I am polite in the car and enjoy the ride so would be a terrific companion for road trips and errands.

Something you should know about me is that I will most certainly bond quickly and closely with my new family.
My new friends at BAGSR think that I embrace this quote from my namesake Thomas Edison. “When you think you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You haven't."

I hope you’d like to meet me! I’ll be waiting with my awesome foster family in Marysville.
