Shorty (foster care)'s Info...
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
My name is Shorty (A18806980) and I weigh about 30 pounds. I am an adorable little black-and-white terrier mix, and I'm sure that somewhere in my lineage there's some Welsh Corgi blood because my legs are a little short, which just makes me all the more cute!! I was taken away from my puppies and abandoned in a lot in the Badlands here in Philadelphia on Orkney Street, where I developed mange and pneumonia because I didn't have enough to eat and it was so cold. Someone picked me up and brought me to the ACCT shelter in Philadelphia, and from there I was taken by a foster family, who are helping me try to find a home. I am very companionable and love to sit next to my foster family and watch TV all night long. I'm not very old, so I can chase a ball or take a walk, but I'm not really a very high-energy doggie. My foster family says that I am much, much calmer than any of the dogs they have ever had living with them before, and that's because I'm just so happy to be warm and safe and well! I am fine with cats, and I think I like male dogs, not so much females. I am not sure I want to live with another dog but who knows, having a doggie brother or sister might help me with the one problem I am still working on, which is my separation anxiety. I get scared when I am left alone because I'm afraid no one is coming back, so I have to be crated while the house is empty. But I'm working on it and the dog trainers are helping me, so I'm sure that this problem will go away and I will be just fine. Remember, I'm really only a puppy myself, even though I was a mommy!
