Mattie's Story...
Poor Mattie hasn't had it so easy. She was surrendered to another shelter in NJ, and was said to "only like her owner". Naturally, she was terrified and needed to be taken in by another shelter or rescue, so we stepped up for her. Mattie came to us very untrusting. She didn't like to be touched, she didn't want to be picked up, but she would let us take her out for walks which opened the door for us and now she is a little lover! Mattie still takes time to warm up to new people, but once she knows you she is extremely sweet and affectionate. She loves to be pet behind the ears and a good butt scratch makes for a very happy Mattie! Her absolute favorite thing in the world is going for walks. She hops up and down and gets very excited for a chance to go outside. Mattie has been good with other dogs here and we can't see her having an issue with cats either. Because she does take time to warm up, she will do best in a home without small children. She is a 7yr old Yorkie/Chihuahua mix, and she will require some grooming. We plan on bathing her and brushing her out, but we are waiting till we have established a very solid relationship with her before we do so. Her ideal home will be a quiet atmosphere with a couple or single person who she can bond closely with, as we know she will!
