I moved to Nebraska from Texas. When I arrived, I was quite sick. I had infections, heart worm and bad teeth. I didn’t have any confidence and really did not know how to act around people or other dogs. The rescue called me a lawn ornament dog because I had a scar around my neck from being outside so long. When I met the volunteers in the rescue, I broke their hearts because I was so sad and anxious but they had lots of hope that I had been saved for a special purpose and a spark ignited….and then my foster family came along!
My foster picked me out as she is from Texas like me. And, she said I had soulful eyes. I am so thankful.
NOW: I am so happy I moved to Nebraska (except for the cold weather). My infections are gone. I have completed heartworm treatment and my bad teeth are gone. Since I have been in foster my life has changed. It was the first time that I have been in a house on a regular basis. My foster sister, Stella, has taught me so much. I am now housetrained and my foster mom says that I am a cuddle bug, goof ball and that I am very smart. She also says that while I can “zoom”, I really like to lounge or be right next to those I love. I also get along with Molly, the cat.
My foster mom is working with me on walking and, introducing me to new people now that I am through the heartworm treatment. She says I am so loyal and eager to learn. It just makes me so happy. The volunteers that first met me are now smiling as they see my progress. It is so good to have a team of cheerleaders!
Things that I now know: sit, lay, crate and house trained. I LOVE TO LEARN AND LEARN QUICKLY AND AM VERY LOYAL. I like to be right by my foster mom’s side. We are working on me getting better on leash.
I am longing for my forever home to be with someone who loves me and will take care of me forever. I am no longer a lawn ornament but a great companion in the house who has a zest for life and a drive to learn and grow! I will blossom with the right home! I know it is out there waiting for me too.
The home that would be best for me will be a calm household who wants a loyal dog that is eager to learn and please. A home that longs for a companion and is willing to work with me and continue my training. Other dogs present in the home should be calmer and not a puppy. Younger dogs can try my patience.
PLEASE NOTE: I WAS ESTIMATED AT 2 YEARS OLD PRIOR TO COMING HERE BUT OUR VET THINKS 5 WOULD BE A CLOSER ESTIMATE.
