Hello world! I’m Autumn!
I’m a sweet, but shy girl looking for a special home to call my own. I find new situations to be quite overwhelming and I need a home that will be patient with me as I learn the ropes. I’d do best in a family that can set me up with a routine, as I find a lot of reassurance in the familiar. Structure, patience, and consistency are key to helping me come out of my shell and revealing the wonderful, loving companion that I am!
I take a little while to warm up but I am well worth the wait! Once I feel safe, I love to treat my people to lots of cuddles and my charming side comes through – the side that enjoys treats, playtime (fetch, anyone?), and walks! Speaking of walks, there are a couple of things to note – I am dog reactive and traffic noise makes me super uneasy, so quieter routes are a must to ensure we both enjoy our strolls. Also, I will need to be the only animal in the home, and children are not a suitable match for me.
I am super smart and already know all my basic commands! I’m house trained, have not shown any signs of separation anxiety, and did not break or chew anything that I wasn’t supposed to in my foster home! Oh, and have you seen my picture? I’m cute as a button! If that isn’t enough to get you to send in an adoption application, I don’t know what will!
So, go on – click the ‘Adopt’ button above and let’s get to know each other!
