LOOKING FOR A QUIET HOME: 7 years old / 35 lbs. I lost my home when my person who was older & blind had to move to a home where I couldn't come along. I was sad & confused but now I'm settled in with my foster family & doing well. I’m looking for an all adult home that is very calm and quiet as that’s what I’m accustomed to. More activity and action makes me nervous/startled and I can shut down a bit or I may snap if I’m afraid or rushed. I'm longing to be a companion again & to give & get love because I'm a sweet & gentle girl. I'm initially very shy, but I warm up with a little time after I feel safe, just give me time to come to you. Keeping me on a leash in the home at first may be helpful too. I’m undergoing some training to help me do well in my crate, and not be protective of my food and toys and it’s going well. I’ve also learned ‘leave it’ to help me not be toy protective. The trainer will be happy to talk to you about these techniques as would my foster family. I get along with both the kitties & dogs in my foster home & do follow other doggie pack-members around a bit, but I really love shadowing my people! I think I would be fine in a home with other pets or as an only dog. I like snuggling with my people or resting at their feet and I’ll bond deeply with them once I’m totally comfortable. I also walk nicely on a leash and ride well in a car. I'm a pretty quiet dog too unless someone comes to the door, then I am in guard dog mode. I have a caretaker nature and try to be supportive when anyone in the home is upset or sad. I'm a little head shy so I'll just duck my head at times, hopefully I'll learn to love head pats, but if not, I still love snuggling! Kids make me nervous and I really haven’t been around kids and don’t want to snap at them, that’s why an all adult home is best for me. I'm working on are my potty training which I've already improved on & learning not to pick things up that aren't mine such as phone chargers & ear buds. Energy level: 4 - 5. I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and my adoption fee is $275.00. I don’t come to all Saturday adoptions as they are pretty overwhelming for me, but you can check to see if I’ll be at 1 of the 2 Kennesaw locations from 11-4pm by going to www.mostlymutts.org on Fridays after 5 pm. If I’m not on either list please inquire at adopt@mostlymutts.org to set up a time to meet me.
