Hello! My name is Dottie. I'm about 2 1/2 years old. My first 2 years of life was really rough. I was considered a cruelty case animal. My first owners were not very nice to me :-( But me and my brother Diego (A274918) were rescued!!! We were in pretty bad shape...we didn't trust anyone. No one wanted to help us trust again until my current foster mom accepted us the way we were and had patience with us.
After about 2 months, I was doing much better and my foster mom put me up for adoption. I was adopted to what we thought was a nice adoptive mom, But after about 3 months being with my new mom left her apartment leaving me in the woods. I was REALLY scared...I still had some trust issues and I had never been left outside before. With my trust issues no one could catch me. Even my foster mom could not catch me...she was so sad. She even offered lots of money if someone could catch me but no one could. I was left outside fending for myself for about 2 months!!! But then one day I was VERY lucky...I was hit by a car...though it stunned me...I was ok and Animal Control was able to catch me. Luckily my foster mom wanted me back and when I went back to Animal Control my foster mom had ensured they had her cell number so they would call her and I wouldn't get euthanized. Within an hour of getting the call, my foster mom was getting me....yeah!!!!! I was back with my brother Diego...that helped me calm down with everything that happened. So it's been about 5 months of hanging out with my foster mom, Diego and the rescue pack. I'm doing really well. I'm a happy dog....I'm a good girl and ready to live my life. Though I do ok with small children...I would flourish in a household with older kids...10 years or older. Just a family that respects my space and willing to let me learn on my time. I do give kisses now, so I'm learning :-) I'm about 10lbs...stocky/low rider. I'm potty/crate trained. My foster mom tells me all the time what a great pup I am. I have lots a good years left and I'm told every day how very smart I am.
Thank you for looking at my profile.
