Intake Date: September 9, 2019
Origination Place: Central Ohio
Last Update: 10/2/19
Age: 6 (estimated)
Energy Level: Low with bursts when outside
Color & Markings: cream
Good with other dogs: I am fine around other dogs, but I still like the protection of a "cave." When it comes to sleeping, I am only comfortable when sleeping alone...I startle easily and sometimes look a little aggressive if another dog surprises me.
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: BBR Policy states no children under the age of 8+. I live with two human foster brothers, both teenagers. They seem to like napping as much as I do, so we get along great. I don't mind when they pick me up to carry me to their "cave" either :)
Object aggression: I don't really have any interest in toys right now. I do love a comfy bed, though.
Special Needs: None
Medications: regular heartworm and flea prevention
Crate Trained: My foster family had me in a separate room during my slow intro time and even though there was a crate in there, I opted for the fuzzy bed that was out in the room.
House Trained: I have had a couple of accidents in the house. My foster family thinks it's because when it's wet or chilly outside, I rush the process to get back in where it's warm - I have unique potty time habits, though. I act like I'm ready to go in the house and get close to the door, and then if I still have to go, I run away from my foster family as fast as I can and find a spot that's more private. I don't know why they don't laugh at that...
Physical Fence Required: Doesn't seem to at this point although she likes to get far enough away for a little privacy during potty time.
Adoption donation: $500
I like my naps, what can I say? I'm anxious around big open spaces and worry if I can't get away quickly, so napping in my cozy bed in my room is my safe spot. I'm getting used to tv time with my foster family and I like the whole sleeping-on-their-lap thing as long as the tv isn't making too many scary noises. My foster family has let me sleep in their bed a few times and I am kind of loving this - it's so warm and cozy. Once I get comfortable and calm, I can sleep all night there.
I do not like a leash, at all. Not interested. My darn foster parents put one of those harnesses on me the other day and I'm not super fond of that, either, but I can still get away with the harness if I need to. That leash, though...and baths? NOPE. Remember the movie Gremlins? Yeah, that's me, at least for now. My foster family also has tried to put clothing on me - when they are not looking I turn into Houdini and come out of my cave au natural, as I think it should be.
I get along with: I get along with everyone - seriously. I know I sound like a worry wart, but I've had lots of visitors come over and pet me and we're just fine. I'm usually in my bed and when they come to me, I just roll over and they start petting me. I like that. I do tend to shiver and shake when I first meet someone - I really appreciate the slow and steady approach.
My ideal home:
I don't think a house that's too, too rambunctious would be good for me. I'm a sweetheart, but I am nervous. It's taken me a long time to get this nervous, so it'll probably take me a long time to get it out of my system. Just sayin'.
My ideal adopter:
I'd love a patient mommy or daddy or some combination. I'm not the kind of dog that's going to run up to you right away, so I need them to know that I love them, I just may not show it. If you are okay with a dog that is taking puppy-steps, I am your girl!
