11/17/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/17/16 03:03 Very scared but warmed up during intake. Go slow with her.
Nothing warms my heart like seeing a once timid dog reach out a paw in friendship and the other day beautiful Pink surprised me with two, right in my lap! She’s come so far from the frightened girl who shivered under my touch and hugged her bed like a security blanket and now when I stop at her door she hops forward to be leashed with expectant eyes. A calm and well-behaved walker, Pink takes care of business quickly then off we hustle to the backyard bench for snuggles and sweet nothings whispered in her velvety soft ear. She’s still a little unsure of herself, wagging her tail while we walk then tucking it again as we cuddle, calmly passing other dogs but not going out of her way to seek their attention either. On our first date I hesitated to even tie on a bandanna for fear of making her uncomfortable but now Pink is a little trouper and lets me dress her in a shirt without complaint and she doesn’t duck her head or shy away from the camera either–just look at that gorgeous face! A quiet, experienced home where she can perfect her socialization skills on her own terms and slowly learn to share her person with strangers would be a dream come true for this delicate darling. If you’re looking to adopt a gentle, affectionate and endlessly loyal pet then my advice is simple…think Pink!

Pink may easily startle and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat.
