Howdy! I’m Olivia and I am a Texan through and through! Aye Chihuahua, it’s cold here in Minnesota!! I got out of the transport van and there was all this cold white stuff on the ground and they wanted me to run around in it!!! AYE!!! Brrrrrrrrrrr. I am learning to appreciate my sweaters and coats!
I am slowly finding my way in my foster home. I am a bit scared of my new surroundings- but, it is way better than living the ole’ stray dog life that I was living. Foster mama says she’ll give me lots of time and patience as I’ve been through a lot. I will tell you though- I am already loving that foster mama- but I’m not quite ready to show her all the way. When she comes home after being gone for a little bit, I run to greet her and give her a big excited smile and wag, but then I run away really quick before she can pet me. One of these days though, I’m gonna let her……
I love to hang out with the other foster dogs in my house, I feel really comfortable with them, and I trust them a lot. We all cuddle and just relax together. They all LOVE foster mama and let her kiss and pet them- it looks SO tempting. They try to tell me that it’s alright, and that I can do it. I’m getting closer and closer.
I am so excited about my breakfast and dinner every day! It comes to me! I don’t have to beg and scrounge around for it anymore! I love to eat my meals, and am right now doing that in my crate. Sometimes, with the other dogs I get distracted and want to see what they’re eating, then I leave my food and someone chomps it down. So, foster mama has me eat in my crate until I get my feet under me a bit.
I am just a small little gal, but I’ve managed to survive 3 years on the cruel Houston streets. I WILL get over my fear and learn to trust humans again. It’ll just take a little time, love and patience. Does that sound like something you’d be willing to give?
