My “bestie” is my foster brother; he’s a Shih Tzu. Our favorite thing to do is to run and run and run in the fenced-in yard! Wherever he goes, I go.

I never used to walk using a leash, but now that I do, I get excited when I see foster mom getting it out as I realize it’s time for a walk in the neighborhood!

My furry friend is my favorite dog, but foster mom is my bestie human. I shadow her too and love to be spoken to; being petted, belly rubs and treats are welcome also!

I do have my fears. Sudden movements, loud noises, the crate. I get a bit panicky if I know foster mom’s in the house, but I can’t find her. I’m unsure of men but will come around with treats and rewards. It’s not known how I’d react with small children because of my fear of sudden movements.
At mealtime I like a quiet space with foster mom near me. Medication helps ease my fears just a bit.

Toys are kinda fun, but so are socks and other laundry. Supervision is needed as I like to chew on both. Sometimes I take a sock to bed with me at night and just keep it next to me. I sleep in a cozy dog bed on the floor next to foster mom.

The vet noticed hip dysplasia, but I haven’t noticed it! He said with my small size it likely won’t be bothering me.

I’m a happy girl, really, constantly wagging my tail once I get to know people. In my heart, I feel that I could join a family that would make both of our lives “sparkle!”
