My foster mommy says I am the most loveable, sweetest thing she has encountered in a while. She says there is nobody that would not fall head over heels in love with me, because I am such a cuddly teddy bear. I tend to want to hold onto her all the time, so I give her kisses and gently hold on to her hand or her sweater but if I accidentally hold on too tightly and she says "ouch" I immediately feel bad and let go. I just like the closeness, I've never been loved and been taken care of by someone before. In my old life I had to fend for myself and at first I was really shy around people, but I warm up very quickly now that I understand that my mommy won't let anyone hurt me again. They think that I was a stray or that someone dropped me off at this lady's acreage, but luckily the lady who owned the acreage called AARCS because the big dogs already living there kept beating me up and tried to chase me away, so these friendly AARCS volunteers came to rescue me. It didn't take long for me to approach them because they had some yummy food and I was very hungry, so I took a risk and got close enough to them that they ended up being able to pick me up and put me in the truck with several other rescued dogs.
That was my lucky day, and I've made great progress in the short time I've been allowed to live inside a real house. At first I was scared to come inside, but now I even ask to come back inside. My mommy is amazed that I have not had a single accident in the house, she does not crate me even when she leaves me and the other dogs alone, the worst I have done is get into the garbage, but my mommy understands that that's what I used to have to do to survive, so she is patient with me, and I will learn. I already understand "no" and when my mommy says it in a stern tone I immediately stop doing whatever I was doing and pay attention to her, I just want to please her, I really don't want anybody to ever be mad at me. My foster mommy was almost in tears when I first realized that dogs can play also and when I carefully grabbed a ball and then dropped it again, so I am starting to learn how to play, and I think it's just fantastic that there are all these toys just for me. I ignore the cats, they don't interest me at all, but I love having all the other dogs around me all day. My foster mommy says she loves me very much. But it is my christmas wish to find a forever family to love me just as much or more than she does, could it be you?
