"I was very lost, starving, and in pain when I was found by some kind humans. I can't remember what happened to me, maybe I have blocked it out, but the scars still remain. I had a large gaping wound where my tail should have been, my lungs were bruised, and I had scabbed wounds around my neck and legs. I was really skinny and had no faith in life any more. I received expert emergency vet care and my healing began.
I still woof my food down( ha ha) because I think it may be a while until I eat again, but regular meals are making me feel better and I am a little less protective of my food with the other dogs around. I am very food motivated so I could learn to do just about anything for a tasty treat.
I am still a little afraid of leashes so it's taking me a while to learn that they can mean fun and play time. I am really trying hard with housebreaking, I am a smart boy, so will be really good at that 100% of the time very soon.
I get on well with other dogs, but find cats fascinating and fun to chase. I don't understand why they don't like me!
I am physically better now! I have been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated to make me feel the best I can.
I get nervous on my own and feel abandoned, so a new home with a doggy friend would be awesome for when the humans are away from home. If they like to snuggle, I would love to snuggle with them too. Humans who are around a lot would make me feel so much happier. Despite being really, really scared of so many things I have never bitten, I just scream when something scares me. If children are quiet and gentle with me and don't try to pick me up in weird ways I kind of like the "wee humans". My foster mom has introduced me to a dog trainer while I wait for my new home....I wonder what I can teach her???????
