Princess Leia's Story...
Princess Leia is my name, after some character in a famous movie, they tell me. I'm a sweet and mellow 18 month old girl. I'm a tad nervous when meeting new people and it can take me a while to warm up to some dogs, but pretty quickly I make myself at home wherever I am. I am housetrained and I know how to use a dog door! I do like to be on comfy furniture, but dog beds are fine too-- I'm happy to sleep next to my foster mom at night on a dog bed or in her bed. I need to put on some weight, and probably because I didn't have enough food for a while, I will help myself to whatever is on the counter. And since I'm extra tall and long, that's pretty easy for me! I like treats, too, and I take them very nicely. I haven't had much experience in vehicles so I don't know quite how to get in one and once in, I'm kind of nervous until we get where we are going but that might get better as I do it more. I walk ok on a leash but want to check things out so a strong hand and a slip lead is best until I get used to walking more. I don't know how I would be around little kids, but I think bigger kids would be just great! Please come meet me and show me what a real home is like.
