Are you looking at my ears? WHAT MY FOSTER SAYS ABOUT ME: Hello! My name is Shiva, and I'm happy to be here and tell you a bit about me. I was brought into another welfare organization in Washington, DC, in July 2023 by nice animal control officers after I was found wandering the streets. I was underweight and had a skin condition, but the vets there nursed me back to health. I'm now a healthy 45 pounds, very energetic, and getting used to trusting humans again. I have been in foster and have grown a lot in my time out of the shelter. I am still quite shy at first, but after getting to know people, I really open up and show my very loving, playful and goofy personality. While I am an adult lady, I have a lot of energy, am silly and playful at times, and LOVE the outdoors. I light up on walks, especially in the park, and love running around and being playful with my foster mom. If you have a nice yard that I can run and play in, I would love that! I also love nice long walks where you can be patient with me as I sniff (a lot). Because of my past, I am scared by sudden, loud noises, so I would really prefer a quiet home, perhaps outside the city so there are fewer sirens and other loud noises. I may be ok with other dogs, but my foster mom thinks I might prefer to be queen of my own castle. I currently live with two adult male cats. My energy and playfulness is not always well-received by them, but I don't show any aggression towards them, just playfulness. A home with cats may work for me, but my new family would have to be willing to go slow with introductions. I am a true love, who is looking for a soft place to land after a rough go of it. Once you earn my trust, I will be very loving and loyal. I'd love to be with a forever family that loves me for all I am and treats me like a princess. ATTRIBUTES: Shiva has lived in foster with cats and done well. -------------- Laila's Legacy Animal Rescue does not guarantee that any dog is housebroken nor crate trained.
