My name is Clementine (#3322) and I am originally from China. I don’t speak the language or know the customs here but I wake up every day eager to learn and figure out everything I can to fit in and do what is expected of me.
My foster family thinks I am “sweet with a precious attitude.” I am eager to learn and willing to try whatever I think the humans want or need from me. I am food-driven which makes teaching me very easy. I don’t understand English yet, but I will. All I require is a little patience and consistency so I can continue to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and be the best dog ever!
I sleep quietly in my crate every night and enter it eagerly when it’s time for bed. I have only been left alone for 2-3 hours (at the most) and I handled the time alone without barking or whining or any sign of distress. I have never soiled an indoor space and understand the need to take advantage of outdoor time to eliminate.
I have not been aggressive toward humans or other dogs, but I can’t say how I would be with cats because my foster family doesn’t have any. I have heard it said that my house manners are close to perfect. I will seek out attention and want to bury my head in a lap, but will also go find a place to lie down and relax when I figure out the humans are busy.
I can get a little frantic when I am confused, but a little patience to give me time to reset and figure out the situation is all I need then I am back to normal and up for whatever is next. I will need some work on basic commands and leash walking, but I am a quick study. With your help, I’ll know I can figure it all out.
I am a good dog!
