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 everything...hot 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!!
