Look, I'm gonna cut to the chase here.å%A0I'm a big girl, I'm 6 years old, andå%A0I've got a littleå%A0baggage... Hey, some peopleå%A0say that's what makeså%A0lifeå%A0interesting!å%A0I'm a 6-year old German Shepherd/Malinois mix and when I was a puppy I got adopted by a really fun family. I got all my puppy out, went through my teenage years, and thenå%A0one day my family took me on a car ride but they forgot to take me home. What happened,å%A0you ask? Wouldn't I like to know! Well, as you might imagine, I'm feeling pretty confused,å%A0nervous, and my anxiety iså%A0notå%A0helping matters; some days I don't even recognize myself. Feeling this way means I don'tå%A0always expresså%A0my emotions in appropriate ways,å%A0right now, but that doesn't mean I don't have it in me to be a good, loving family member... Don't forget, I was a part of the family for many years!å%A0Something I've been thinking about while I'm waiting for my furever home is that people always talk about animalså%A0not understanding boundarieså%A0but you know what? Sometimes people don't either! I can tell you this much, I do. not. like. people getting up in my face and I don't like being startled awakeå%A0when I'm in a deep sleep. Being caught off guard like thatå%A0makes me feel like something is wrong and that I need to immediately protect myself. I have a foster home that is going to take care of me very soon and they say that I am a very friendly and sweet girl. I know that when it's finally time to go to my furever home I want to be the onlyå%A0pet,å%A0even though I like to make dog friends sometimes.å%A0Also, I definitely don't want to live with kids;å%A0been there, done that, baby! Eh, that's just too much hectic energy for my style and it makes meå%A0feel nervous. I like an adult home with a very calm, laid-back lifestyle that doesn't have a lot of commotion or people running in and out. I still have lots of playful energy though,å%A0so maybe playing ball or exploring in the backyard sounds good to you too? I'm excited to get to my foster homeå%A0and I'll be sharing more information about myselfå%A0as life settles down! If interested please visit and look under Available Pets.
