My Ideal Home: I am an anxious dog so I will need an understanding, and patient home. my secret dream is to be an interior decorator. If left unattended for long periods of time, I’ll find things to get into and rearrange. I mostly like to pull blankets, pillows or anything soft onto the floor and make a comfy nest for me or my foster sisters. I also like to find objects that belong to my foster mom and snuggle with them in my bed. My personal favorites are her jackets, shoes, boots and gloves. I don’t damage them, I just want to be close to them. I came from a bad situation, where I was treated terribly. This caused me to not trust anyone. My foster mom calls it being fearful. All I know is my heart starts to race, I tremble uncontrollably and I look for a corner or wall to crawl into or against. My foster mom calls it pancaking, since I’ll flatten myself against the wall, not wanting to be touched. My foster mom and I are working on it though, and she said I’ll learn to trust eventually. I will need a home that understands my past, accepts my fear and is willing to continue to take baby steps with me, to build confidence. I love with all my heart, I’m just afraid of being hurt again. For now, I just love from afar. I’ll tell you one thing that really helps me relax though, is when my foster mom puts on relaxation music for dogs. She turns on something called a CD and it plays pretty music with relaxing sounds that only dogs can hear.
Intake info: I was rescued from a puppy mill.
