My owner had never made the time to take care of me so they failed to walk me and teach me how to interact with the world. When they left me at the pound, I was so scared that I did not eat, interact with anyone, or move within my cell, other than uncontrollably shake in fear. Since Forte picked me up, I have learned a lot. I have gotten pretty good walking on leash and will sit if you dangle a treat in front of me. I know, I know...I need to learn my commands, but why can't I get a treat EVERY time? I would do well with a gentle doggy companion to teach me how to enjoy my life, and will do great with older and mature children. When I am feeling safe, I like to explore my surroundings, but my most favorite thing is to be by your side every moment I can! If you are looking for little shadow, that is me! If you like to cuddle while watching TV or sleeping, me too! If you enjoy going on long walks, I want to go with you! If you wish to see my smiling face every day and help me discover how full life is meant to be, can you let Forte know you would like to take me home?
