Happy Gotcha Day Precious!
MEET MISS PRECIOUS!! This cutie is one of the newest members of LFS. She is approximately 10 Months old. Precious was just rescued from animal control with her mom RJ, sisters Coco and Zip. She is sweet and shy. She will have to go into a home with another dog. She will need a very patient family to let her come out of her shell. More info to come soon.
Foster update 01/04: Precious came to stay with us about 2 months ago and it has been been amazing to watch her transform from a terrified dog into one that loves to play and craves attention. She is still a little timid around new people, but after some time she starts to come around. She did meet several “new” people over the holidays so the extra practice was helpful. Precious enjoys car rides, walks, toys, a good game of fetch, and especially loves playing with her 4 legged foster brother and sister. She is completely potty trained and crate trained, although she doesn’t entirely love being left in the crate when we go out. She has been tested with cats and we are happy to report she didn’t really pay much attention to them. She has also been around kids ages 6 to 15 multiple times and did well. However, if they start to get wild, it makes her a bit uneasy. That will get better with time and experience, just like everything else. We really enjoyed having her with us for the holidays and even got her her first Christmas stocking so she wouldn’t feel left out. We swear she is way more excited about it than she appears to be .It would be so wonderful if she found a forever home where she could have her own stocking year after year. If you take a chance on this sweet girl, we promise you won’t regret it. Love, time, and patience is all it takes.
Foster update 11/22: We have had Precious for about 2 weeks now and came to us as one of the most scared and traumatized dogs we have ever fostered. We literally had to pick her up to move her anywhere (to go outside, to go to bed, etc.). She is finally starting to gain some confidence and clearly enjoys acting like a regular dog from time to time, especially when she’s outside in the yard. Our other dogs have been such a help in the whole process as Precious relies on them to show her what to do. For this reason, we feel she must go to a forever home with another dog(s). Precious has even discovered toys and absolutely loves to play with them. She likes to fling them in the air and will chase anything you throw for her. She has started to come over to us occasionally for some head scratches and has even gotten up on the couch to lay next to us a couple times… which is huge! She also let our 6 year old nephew lay his head on her and gently pet her. To be clear, Precious will need someone VERY patient as she still has a ways to go. However, the progress made in just 2 short weeks has been great to see and is very encouraging.
