I’m Demi, a darling little girl of about three who, according to my Mom, is just plain adorable. Mom says that good things come in small packages and at only 9 pounds I’m a darling little ‘package’.
There are lots of things that I do that are just plain cute. For example, I get so excited when Mom wants to take me for a walk, or give me a treat, that I literally hop up and down. Then there’s this really cute thing I do with the doggy stairs. Instead of going “up” the stairs like most pups, I “back” up them. And when I sit on the doggy stairs I put my front feet on a lower step than my back feet (I really am comfortable that way, honest!) Oh and I also hop like a bunny on my walks and I love to run, too!
Before I became a FurKid, life was very different. I was on the street for a while then in someone’s back yard. I had some doggy buddies which helped but very little interaction with people. About a year ago I was “rescued” by people with good intentions. They put me in the first of two foster homes with people that worked all day. I got to hang out with the dogs that were there which was fine but didn’t do well with the people. So I got moved to a different foster home and it was the same situation. Shortly after that the people in that rescue group moved and all of the pups, like me, needed to find another rescue to help them. Well I was one of the lucky ones because I became a FurKid!
Once I got to my foster home I found a Mom and Dad who do not work outside the home and a doggy foster brother who is a senior guy (but I try every day to get him to play with me anyway.) It took me about a week but I decided my Mom is a really nice lady and I started to be comfortable around her. I let her take me on walks and rides in the car (I’m very good on both) but I still don’t let her pick me up.
As for Dad, I must admit that I bark at him every time he comes into the room, even if he was only gone for a few minutes. And with strangers I bark and sometimes growl. My bonding and comfort level seems to be with women only and, of course, other little FurKids like me.
I’m definitely a little girl with a lot of promise. You might call me a bit of a ‘project’ or, as my BFK Aunties say, a ‘diamond in the rough!’ I’m far more comfortable with dogs than with people – and much more comfortable with women than men. I also need another young playful pup who is well socialized and can show me how to be a happy well-adjusted pup.
Mom says that I truly love other dogs and have lots of fun with my doggy foster brother and other pups. Like most young dogs, I need a forever Mom (or two Moms) willing to continue to work on my training (Mom calls it socialization) – so that I can grow up to be the best little girl there is.
My Ideal Home:
- A woman (or women) home most of the time
- Must have another active, playful dog around my age
- Another dog to show me the ropes
- NO men in the home
- NO Kids (I’m just too fearful)
- Recent experience with an active pup a plus
- Rescue dog experience
- Experience with behavioral training
My wish of all wishes is for a special someone who is very kind, patient and willing to work with me so that I can become the little girl I was always meant to be. When that wish comes true I’ll be the happiest little FurKid alive.
Because I have a number of on-going needs, if you are a woman (no gentlemen please!) who has a young small-ish FurKid currently and is interested in potentially submitting an application to adopt me, please first send an email indicating your background and a little about your FurKid to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is an alignment between what you describe and what I need, a volunteer will be back in touch to ask you to complete an adoption application.
I wish. I wish.
Darling and Dainty Demi
