My likes: I like cuddling with my foster humans and dog foster brother on the couch. I love romping around outside in the back yard and I am learning how to play!
My dislikes: I don't like raindrops anywhere near me (but snow is awesome) or baths. I don't love it when my foster mom cleans my nose folds, but I put up with it.
I get along with: Everyone! Kids, adults—pile them on please!
My ideal home: A fenced yard and a single-story home would be good for me, but not a deal breaker. I am working on it, but leashes are foreign to me, so I prefer to romp around on my own in the yard to relieve myself. I am learning how to navigate stairs; as my confidence has grown, I have mastered 2-3 steps, but I have yet to attempt a full flight of stairs, no matter how tasty the treats may be!
My ideal adopter: A person or family who will be patient and kind to me. I am not a shy girl, but I am reserved. Everything is new to me. Although I may easily startle, I am resilient. I will look to you to make sure everything is okay. I am willing to try new things, but I need help building my confidence and learning manners.
Additional info you might want to know about me: As silly as it may seem, I am hesitant to cross door or gate thresholds. As I have grown more comfortable in my foster home, I am doing much better, but I may need your encouragement. Related, it may seem like I don't like my crate, but that's not it. I just get scared stepping into my crate, so I need help. Hey, it’s a lot of new things for a girl to learn, but we’re getting there!
