Fostered in Sutherlin, OR
My name is Miracle and I'd like to tell you a story about how that name of mine came to be.One day, this nice lady was minding her own business, heading to her exercise class when she heard what sounded like whining from a garbage dumpster. "How can that be?" she thought. She decided to check it out. To her surprise, when she opened the lid, a brown dog was laying there inside. It looked to her like the dog had a pretty severe neck wound, so she took the dog to the vet and they discovered that the dog's collar was embedded into her neck. The vets removed it and fixed her all up, assuring that she would be good as new in no time at all. All that, thanks to that guardian angel that saved her.
Well folks, that dog was ME! The definition of "miracle" is: An amazing or wonderful occurance.... I think that totally fits my situation and is the perfect name. I am healing great and am as happy as can be. I live life to the fullest and I hold no grudges. I am living with my foster family and have 2 foster fur brothers that I am getting to know. I really want to run free with them, but my foster mom won’t let me play as much as I want until my neck is completely healed. The boxer type pooches like to nibble on each other and she doesn’t want me to get hurt.
My foster mom thinks I haven’t had a lot of attention or training in my short life, because I really didn’t know any commands when I first got here. She is very proud of me though. I now sit before leaving my crate. The crate doesn't bother me, by the way. I am very well behaved inside of it. I sit before going in/out doors and before I eat. I walk pretty well, but get a little excited at all the new things to smell and see so I have to be reminded to stay beside my people. Right now, while my neck is healing, I wear a harness. My mom says makes me pull like a sled dog. She thinks I will learn much faster when I get to wear a collar again. We are currently learning what "down" and "place" are and I am working on my manners. She says its not nice to jump up on people to show them how excited I am to see them. I had no idea, so I'll keep working on that.
I do like those treats, so I don’t mind the learning part. My mom also feels that whoever is lucky enough to take me home forever should plan on finding a trainer to work with us. She saysI am really smart but I am just a big puppy, and a professional trainer may be able to help us learn quicker. I haven’t been around any cats, but I will likely find them too interesting so I probably should go to a cat-free home. If I am adopted into a home with another dog, I need them to be pretty even tempered and relaxed. I tend to get pretty excited and go under and over and all around my foster brothers and they just get out of my way. I would hate to make a new brother mad at me.
I know I have a shocking story that grabs your attention. It may make you feel a little sorry for me and make you want to just bring me home to baby and spoil me. Trust me, that is not what I need. What I need, is a leader to show me right from wrong and how to be the best dog I can be. I will love and respect you more for that. In dog language, that is way better than hugs and kisses. Although, if I earn them, I will gladly take the hug, kisses & pets also!
