My story

We fell head over heels for this tiny little girl. She has obviously been a momma, which was difficult to see because she looks like a baby herself. Tina was a little shy but sought out human attention and interaction, as long as we were slow, she came right up to us and followed us around. She allowed us to touch her all over without difficulty. She is more attention motivated than food motivated. She will be easy peasy to train once she knows she is safe. Tina was absolutely perfect on a leash, which may be in part to her shyness, but she was not scared and will clearly warm up quickly as she just wanted to be near us. Dog interactions were about the same, she was interested and friendly but not completely comfortable which most likely had nothing to do with the other dog and more to do with her current situation and environment.
