05/25/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Miley can be shy and fearful, so much so that the first couple times I walked her I didn’t think I’d ever get a glimpse of the “real” Miley. The one described by her previous owner as a very sweet dog that just lays in the tub when it’s bathtime and likes to pretend she’s a lap dog. But with some time and treats it seems I became a familiar face, and one special lady emerged! She walks beautifully on leash and seems housebroken. She lights up at the sight of a tennis ball and loves to play fetch. She easily lets me take the ball from her, but loves to stretch out at my feet and gently chew on it — almost like a pacifier in the strange new place she finds herself. She thoroughly and gently licks my hands when I pet her and later moves on to my face — she is so incredibly sweet! She’ll nest on my lap, prop her paws up on familiar staff members we encounter in the hallways, and even roll over for belly rubs! A slow approach is a minuscule price to pay for all the love Miley has to give! Could your lap be her new favorite place? Please come see her at Brooklyn ACC!
