Featured Pet is…Bonnie!
A face with a story to tell…
Bonnie is part of a group of small dogs we took in from a shelter that sent a plea out after they had taken in a high number of dogs from a hoarding situation. Our
best guess is that she is around 4 years old and much like you would imagine, she is a bit shy with new faces.
What Bonnie lacks in her socialization skills, she makes up for with her willingness to forgive and give humans a chance if they have patience with her. She is very food motivated and we have been helping her gain confidence by doing simple and low-stress training sessions to get her used to being around new people.
Bonnie has lived with other dogs and is one of just two of the hoarding case dogs left in our care. She has been waiting since March to find a home that understands how to allow her to adjust slowly and on her own terms. When Bonnie was in a foster home, she made drastic improvements from what we saw in a shelter environment. Bonnie’s foster shared, “She is very curious about me and follows me everywhere. I haven’t been able to touch her as she’s still too nervous but if I lay on the ground, she comes up and smells my face. Yesterday, she was nudging my eye with her nose for quite a while.”
If you would like to add a dog to your home that needs a second chance at a happy life, Bonnie would greatly appreciate your help in finding her confidence again. Apply for Bonnie today! Not ready to adopt? We always could use more willing foster homes to help dogs like Bonnie learn what a loving home is like.
