Hello Everyone! My name is Annie and I am a special girl. I am only a year and a half year old Labradoodle and my past was a troubled one. I spent my time in a crate and was not socialized with people, so I am very fearful. Before coming to my current home, I spent five days with a very nice lady who taught me that not all people are scary. I even gave her some kisses as a thank you. Two nice women picked me up from there and we made the trip to this place I live now. When we arrived I was too scared to get out of the van. I had to be carried in, and this thing you people call a leash just makes me "freeze". I am not quite sure what you want me to do when that thing is on. The first few days were challenging for me. There are so many noises in a house that I have never heard before. There is this big square on the wall and it makes all kinds of noise. I guess you all call it a TV, and STAIRS, what are those? FM had to carry me up and down those for the first three days to get me to the fenced in backyard so I could do my business. Good thing I am a petite girl and only weigh 42 pounds. Going in and out of doorways is also scary to me. For the first few days FM had to put me on a tie out because once I was outside I was too scared to come back in. She tried dogs, food, pleading...I guess she thinks this below zero weather is too cold to stand out in with the door open. I have it figured out now though and prefer the warm house. She still has to talk nice to me to get me to come in but I give in pretty quickly and come through the door. I do love being outside. I will doodle bounce all around the yard. I will chase after the resident Golden here, Alli. I am still learning appropriate play with other dogs. FM says I am pretty submissive and stop when the other dogs here let me know they don't like what I am doing. You see, I came into heat the day before I came here and there is this cute little neutered male dog here named Rocky and I do like to flirt with him. I will bounce around him and I want him to pay attention to me and like me. He just stands there like I don't even exist so sometimes I get a little upset about that. FM says she hopes this whole heat thing is over soon so I can get my spay surgery and not be so hormonal :)

FM says I have been a brave girl and I have came so far in the week I have lived here. I will go to FM when she says my name and let her pet me. I even will paw at her when she stops. I am still unsure of the other people that live here and I am very jumpy with noises. I know with lots of time, patience and love I will continue to make steps and learn to trust people. I have a lot of love to give and FM says I am so sweet. I will need a home with older kids, a fence and another large dog to continue to show me the ropes. I met a cat and let it rub up against me. I don't currently live with one but I don't think I would mind having one in my forever home. If you would like to meet me, please let your Placement advisor know! I will keep you updated on all my progress. Until then, have a Merry Christmas!!
