Bianca Square

I am a long way from roaming homeless on the streets of Lebanon where Beirut For The Ethical Treatment of Animals rescued me.  A nice lady brought me to Chicago and entrusted my care to As Good as Gold.  My name Bianca means “fair haired and shining” and I fit that description perfectly.

I was a little nervous when I first arrived and it took me some time to warm up to my fur foster siblings.  Now we are best friends.  We love to play together and they have even shown me what to do with all the great stuff in the toy box.  I especially like to work on getting the treats out of the puzzle toys.  Sometimes I have to be reminded to share, especially if it is a bone or my favorite toy.  Foster mom is very patient with me because I am only two years old and probably never had any training.  I  enjoy long walks with my foster parents and running around the yard.   Did I mention that I know how to talk?  I make guttural sounds in the morning when I am greeting everyone or when I am especially excited about something like a walk or my dinner.

I am a cuddle bug and enjoy being scratched and petted, but I am a little protective of my tail area.  The veterinarian took x-rays which showed that someone had shot me with birdshot.  People often shoot pellets at strays for folly in Lebanon.  I used to a have a mild case of incontinence when I would sleep in my bed.  Those little drips have stopped since I started taking an inexpensive pill every day and the doctor said I may not have to take them forever.

Because my young life has been filled with chaos and uncertainty, I would do best in a home that is calm most of the time. As for fur siblings, I have seen cats and they don’t really interest me.   An easy going fur brother would be great, but I would also be content to be the one and only dog and get all the attention.

If you are looking for a sweet girl to share your life and ice cream with then look no further.  My tail is wagging just thinking about a forever home and French Vanilla in a waffle cone!
