Hello. My name is October, and well, I have been here at TXCR since October. In case you did not know, it is almost JANUARY now! I love my foster parents a lot and they have helped me learn to not be so scared. I am very embarrassed to admit this, but I pee a little when I'm nervous, so I have to wear diapers like a baby even though I am 5 years old.

The lady who rescued me says I have PTSD. I guess if PTSD gives you the PEED, she is probably right. I come with some minor-ish issues, sure, but I am a super-sweet gal and once I open up to you I can be a lot of fun. I am learning to walk on a leash and getting pretty good at it. I kennel well and do not have accidents in my kennel. I am very quiet and am fostered in an apartment setting. OCTOBER is a terrible name! Who picked that?? It's such a reminder of how long I have been waiting for a home. Gee, good job, Miss Tamie.

I may need to see a psychiatrist. I am a fraidy-cat dog. I heard a psychiatrist on TV talking about peeling back an onion. Dogs are not supposed to have onions, but I get the analogy. I came from a really scary place and am pretty traumatized about my past. It takes me a long time to feel comfortable. I have lots of good qualities though and not a mean bone in my body. I only weigh 5.5 lbs, so I couldn't hurt anybody if I tried. No matter how scared I get, I am never, ever mean or aggressive. I just pee a little. That's not so bad, is it?

I watched a puppy poop on his new mom the other day, and she still took him home with her. I have never pooped on my foster mom. Then there is Cheals who tries to attack everything and everyone she sees, and her mom carries her around in her shirt all day and hand feeds her treats. She even has a fancy stroller, and that dog is a brat and she bites HARD!!! I kinda figure if these silly dogs can find homes after biting people in the face and pooping on their new owner, I should be able to find a home that can buy some diapers. Am I wrong? Okay, I am babbling here. Please think about taking me home FOREVER. I deserve a great home because I am a great girl who has worked very hard to peel back my onion.
