My breeder was arrested and all of us were taken to a shelter. There we sat for almost a month until we could leave for Rescue. I was pregnant again. Once I came to CLHR I gave birth to a litter of 12 babies. The stress and the poor living condition I came from caused most of my babies to die within the first 2 weeks. They were all sick. Only one of my Babies survived.
I had a horrible time after I gave birth to my last litter. Was not used to being in a home around people or other dogs that did not want to mate with me. I was severely anxious and would not stop pacing. I sure am glad they put up with me and let me get my anxiety under control. I am so much better now. They say I am blooming like a flower and rising above my past.
We do not think about my past anymore. We focus on what is here right now. My future holds a forever home, I just know it. I know there is someone out there that will love me and care for me the way I am being cared for now. I have so much love to give to my humans. I do not hold back. I am still a little nervous and run a lot. I still pace a little. I just do not want to miss anything. I like to do a perimeter check and report that all is safe each time I go outside. I no longer pee or defecate on myself when I am touched. I like being touched now. It feels good to lay on my back on the couch and get my belly rubbed. I will randomly fall on my back just so my humans can pet me. I call it the Belly run check...I roll and you rub! Simple strategy that works! I roll they rub and tell me how sweet I am...see I told you I am smart!
I also hardly ever bark. I have some damage to my voice box, not sure if that was an injury sustained accidentally or if it was done on purpose by my breeder. I can only hit very high notes. Who cares, people chuckle when they hear me squeak! I bark very little and I am learning how nice it is to be free.
My adopter will still have to work with me. I am after all a little late to the game of training love praise, so the more I get the better I behave. I love to chew things so I need a steady supply of toys to keep my mouth busy! I mean I need a lot of chew toys! Small price to pay when you get the honor to share your life with me. Don't you agree?
I am pad trained and will go outside, but sometimes I get so busy I forget to go outside so you have to have pee pads or stay on top of me so I do not mess in the house. I am worth it, I promise!
