More About Me: More info to come. First, Pet Harbor was told I was about 6 years old, but when I went to the vet on 1/24/2022, my vet said I’m no more than 9 months old. So that explains why I have puppy behaviors!
The one major thing to learn about me is my shyness. My history taught me to be cautious. Not only am I learning to be a dog, but I’m also learning basic life. If your life began as mine did, you’d be the same way. I’m learning and growing. Because of what I had to live through, trusting people is new to me. My foster mom is working with me, but it takes baby steps.
Please also understand while my adoption will be super rewarding for my family, it cannot be a heartstrings adoption. Adoption is a commitment for many years. It needs to be made with engagement of the brain and the heart. Adoptions made solely by a tug at the heartstrings do not work.
Patience is the most important layer my family must wear. It’s not that I don’t want love. It’s that I don’t know what love is. I am learning a lot. The more distance I put between the situation from which I came and me, the more things will improve for me. My home needs to be with people with not only patience but also gentleness, understanding, and full of lots of love to give me. Progress is progress, but it takes baby steps to get there. The rewards to humans are immense when a shy dog trusts. The journey to that point is taken by people who are kind, patient, knowledgeable, and understanding. For instance, right now, I like to hug the corners. Will you have the patience to understand? Are you my patient family waiting to love me?
