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.
