At Wags and Whisker's Pet Rescue:
Marian is one of over 30 dogs rescued from a filthy hoarding situation in Olivehurst.
In May, Wags and Whiskers rescued over 30 dogs from a hoarding situation in Olivehurst. When we first took them in, they were dirty and terrified, having never stepped out of a single home their entire lives. In the past months, most are now very friendly! While many have been adopted, 4 still haven't found forever homes! Please consider these poor pups when looking for a new member of your family.
Marian is currently doing well in foster care. According to her foster:
THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL LITTLE LADY LOOKING FOR A VERY SPECIAL HOME. Her name is Marian (aka Little One).
So...I have been fostering this little one for 7 weeks now. She has no desire to be a movie star (hence, no video), and Red must not be her favorite color either, since when the red light comes on for the flash on the camera, she looks away.
When I first brought her home she would try and hide and shake in the back of the crate anytime I got near it. She still see's the crate as her safe spot, but now she will play with me from inside it, dance around with excitement when I get home, or for a meal, and licks my fingers. She is still nervous when I bring her out, but will now eagerly eat treats while sitting next to me on the couch, and when they are gone does not try and take off, as a matter of fact, she has decided that my lap is a great place to hang out. Whenever I stop petting her she will lick my fingers and stick her head under my hand to ask me to pet her some more. I use pads in her crate, and she usually holds it till I get home cuz she knows I will get it out of her house immediately after she goes, but if she does go when I'm not home, she will roll the pad up with her nose and push it into the corner. Since she does not like potty in her house, I think she will be very easy to potty train, plus she has a pretty regular schedule of when she goes. She's not a big barker at all. She is very LOVING, SMART and SWEET. She knows “no”, “eye goo” (so I can wipe her eye's), “your O.K.”, “what a good girl”, and “belly rubs”. As long as you tell her these things, she does very well as she knows what to expect from you. She rode great crated for a 35 minute ride to my house. No whining, barking, or car sickness. She gets along with all my pack, both large and small. She has never met a Cat, so I have no idea how she would do with one. Although she is doing much better with it, for now, it would be best if she were fed alone in a crate, as she did have to be food aggressive with others in order to get her share and survive. She loves squeaker toys, (so much so that they don't last very long at all), and her doggie bed. She really is awesome and just needs someone who has the time and the patience to let her keep progressing at her pace, becoming more confident in people. I would love to see her get into her forever home so that she can start adjusting and bonding with her forever person. She is spayed, UTD on shots, and micro-chipped.
Foster care is strongly encouraged to help socialize these dogs! Please consider helping in any way you can.
