    Story

    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 a bit overwhelming and I need a home that will be patient with me as I learn the ropes. I have been in a new foster home for almost a month and have found an environment that I can thrive on. There is a secure back yard and I can come in and out without having to be on a leash. No dogs, cats or children just a very special lady who spoils me with love. I particularly like chilling on the deck and on the grass.
    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 and playtime (fetch, anyone?).
    I am super smart and already know all my basic commands! I am totally 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! I also do not go on the furniture. Give me a treat and I will sit for you, shake a paw or lay down. Just ask me.
    And yes, there are a couple of things to note especially walks. I am dog reactive so avoidance is a must (and sorry no off leash dog parks) and traffic noise (especially big noisy trucks) make me super uneasy, so quieter routes are a preference until you have had some time to work with me 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.
    If you are ok with a one animal home and can spend some time working with me on my walks you are possibly the one for me. Oh, and have you seen my pictures? 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!
