MADRA We so appreciate all the donated #gifts by supporters to our rescue dogs from https://t.co/5GLoRiK05S, You are all… https://t.co/06Eg98XvIJ
You’ve probably been wondering what I’ve been up to for the last four years. I’ll never tell. What I will tell you is that the world can be a little scary for me. I arrived to this place, with my body all puffed up, barking and growling... telling everyone to leave me alone. I didn’t want those humans or dogs anywhere near me. I didn’t like it here. I didn't want anyone to see all that fear in my heart....so I put up a wall. I just cried and cried so much. Well the funny thing is, the humans kept coming back and giving me treats....over and over again, talking really gently to me. Something which, I must say is not something I’ve experienced much of in my life to date.
I kept my guard up but damn, I just couldn’t resist snapping up those treats! Every day it was the same. They told me they knew that I was scared, that I was worried and anxious. They told me they understood. So I’ll admit it...I was curious! And I gradually began to let them get closer to me. And THEN!!!!!!

THEN....there was magic! I realised that oh-so-gentle behind the ear rubs are quite lovely indeed.? But..only with the couple of people I really trust and even then, I’m not sure about having rubs all over. The humans are sure I will come to love them in time though.

They could be right about that. I was convinced I didn't like other dogs when I arrived here. Well guess what?!?! I have discovered, for the first time in my life, how amazing it is to have dog friends!? I adore them and I LOVE my play sessions with them. If you have a friendly dog too, that would be amazing as the folks here said another dog in a forever home will help me with this confidence thing they keep banging on about!
