Here’s the scoop, a quote from foster mom: “Hope is going to make somebody a fabulous dog, the sweetest and friendliest dog ever.”
I like to be around this kind lady so follow her everywhere possible. When foster mom leaves the house, I settle in by the door she left from and wait. If she’s gone longer than an hour or so, I become anxious and start chewing on things. I’m improving on that issue, but it still happens. When left alone for a longer period than I imagined (perhaps an hour), or during the night, countersurfing is of occasional interest too. No matter how far back mom puts things, I can reach it. I refuse the crate. I’m not afraid of that headpiece, “the cone,” though. Foster mom has used it on occasion with no fuss from me!
I feel so “at home” here, and like having furry friends and a human who cares for me. But anxiety lingers. Medication helps; the vet and foster mom are working on the best medication and dosage that will work for me.
Additional reasons you might want me for your pet:
- I don’t pull on the leash
- Rarely will you hear me bark
- I’m very attentive and will do anything to please
- Aggression is NOT a part of my MO
- I’m mostly house trained
It would be best if I were adopted by a family in which someone was home most of the time and who own another dog, so I’d have a mentor brother or sister. And, I need to have a fenced in yard since I am timid.
People who have been with me realize how I have persevered despite a hard-luck life so far.
I’m available if you’re looking for loving companionship.
