Hi Everybody,

I’m Shirley (#3043), but my foster mom thinks that I’m so sweet that she calls me Sugar.  I like that because I’ve never had anyone think I’m sweet.

My first few days in foster care were kind of disconcerting…there’s so much stuff that I don’t know about.  I am learning, but some days I still feel a little overwhelmed. I am still a little skittish with loud noises or fast movements, but I think I will get better as I learn to trust my humans.

I love to play with my cousins here…we have plenty of room to run and they are sharing their toys with me, which is very nice, but I would like my own toy box.  I am still trying to play with the humans like I play with the dogs, which, for some reason, my foster mom is trying to discourage.  I also am trying not to mouth, but I just get so excited, I can’t seem to help myself…so I need someone who understands that I’m really not trying to bite, just play.

I love a soft, fluffy bed…I didn’t even know that it would feel so good, but now that I know, there’s no turning back.  Something even better than that would be to be able to share a bed with you, as I am quite the snuggler.  A spot on the chair next to you will work too.

My forever family will find that I am truly a treasure if they can take the time & have the patience to help me through the stuff I need to learn.

If you look in the dictionary under Velcro Dog, you will find my picture. I’ve not had a human of my own before and I LOVE it.  I am a Golden through & though.
