A Note from Grove:
Oh my, I’ve been asked to write about myself. Well, I’m a timid lass, and not accustomed to being in a cozy house. I feel that I’m acclimating quite nicely! Having a kind foster mom and a fellow dog to play with and learn from certainly is a pleasant circumstance to be in. When foster mom pets me, I’m all in! And I give her the “golden nudge,” if she stops for a second!
I’m very low-key indoors. Going outdoors is exciting — so much to see and smell! Coming back indoors makes me feel a little apprehensive, but foster mom has been encouraging me and I’m becoming more comfortable coming back in now.
You can find me carrying around and playing with toys. Toys made out of fabric have been put out of my reach though.
My forever family might want to spend some time teaching me basic commands as I’ve never had an opportunity to learn them. Foster mom has been working with me though. I’m fine on a leash, so perhaps my forever family and I could learn to walk together too!
Healthwise I seem to have some sensitivity to chicken products. I eat soft beef chunks and rice now and have been feeling great! I’m not especially comfortable having people watch me eat, but I’m relaxing more with that too. Other than being careful with what I eat, I’m in very good health for a nearly-6-year old! A benign tumor that will not metastasize was removed from my lower jaw. The vet said that the removal “offered a cure and regrowth is uncommon.”
People who meet me love to see my light and luxurious coat. I’m crossing my paws, hoping I’ll meet my forever family soon.
