My Perfect Match:

-Will go very slow with me and let me gain confidence, I have never lived in a home before, been on a leash or harness, and many other things that most dog owners take for granted.
- I am still learning how to enjoy being inside, I can be quite stressed and will need time learn to enjoy living in a home.
-Willing to take multiple trips to WAG to build trust and a relationship with me.
-Will keep me on leash and safe with a GPS tracker - I am a flight risk!

I am very shy and scared. I like human company and to be gently brushed and pat. I am very nervous about this new environment and I sneakily try to escape whenever I'm alone. I am a fetch champion and if you have a little tennis ball we'll be good friends. Once I am more comfortable, I will be happy in a quiet home with someone who understands me and my special needs.
I was surrendered from a loving family who just couldn't care for me anymore. It was scary and sad, now I'm in this whole new environment with a different routine. Everyone is great here, but it's taking me time to settle in; I hope my new family is just as patient.
I was brought to WAG's facility where they have been working with me daily to build up my confidence and trust, and in the last few days, I have made good progress.
I now allow them to touch me and am showing my playful side in the yard!
