Your adoptive mom doesn’t realize that you’re not teething. You’re bored. I ran into the same thing with my boys, Runt and Mutt Jr.
There comes a time when every puppy gets tired of standing between your legs having his cute pictures posted on Facebook. He may even get bored smelling other dogs. This is especially true if he’s been fixed. (Have you been fixed Ranger? There’s an easy way to check. Look between your legs.)
Mutt Jr. dealt with boredom by digging his way to China; that’s the take-out restaurant on the other side of the fence. Runt used to play hide-and-seek with his poop. And you like to chew and swallow.
Your mom should encourage you to have a hobby instead. I would suggest running away. That’s a good hobby. Or Sudoku. Maybe a big Sudoku book with a lot of tasty pages.
