Hello Humans. My name is Midnight and Iâm a 3 year old Labrador mix. I have a beautiful black coat and my eyes twinkle like stars. I was abandoned on Dowdy Ferry Rd and in dog days, I was there a really long time. I tried to keep a low profile as I didnât trust people anymore. I would eat whatever I could find in the trash or laying on the ground. It was a rough and lonely life until a volunteer from Dallas DogRRR showed up. Silly lady thought Iâd just walk up to her because she had food in her hand. She was determined to get her way though and practically tackled me just to get me to eat. It was yummy so I let her put me in her car. She let me ride shotgun over to a foster volunteerâs house. I played hard to get with my foster for about a week and a half. I had never seen a human with so much fortitude and compassion. All I had to do was accept her kindness. Let me tell you how it goes with me now. Iâm a people-pleaser. If my human wants me to do something, I do it - with a few exceptions - Iâm not very good at washing windows or folding clothes. I give great kisses to make up for it though. Iâm devoted, loyal, and loving. Iâm also potty trained, crate trained, and a doggie door master. I love car rides and walk great on a leash. I like other dogs- and probably cats but I havenât met any yet. Most importantly, I really like humans now â big ones and little ones. Iâm still a little shy and scared so humans need to approach slowly for now or be prepared to find me hiding under the bed. As soon as I know weâre in this journey together, I will warm up quickly.
I wrote a love song for us:
If you like pina coladas (any beverage really) and getting caught in the rain (traffic, snow, etc) If you're not into yoga (even if you are), if your friends think you're sane. If you like dogs named Midnight, rehabbed from the dark streets Iâm the pooch that youâve looked for, come get me, bring treats. ~ Midnight
