A few words from me:
I’m Megan, a 14 lb bundle of stunning chocolate sweetness! Foster mom says that my gorgeous little face is especially expressive because I like to tilt my tiny head, prick up my ears and crinkle my forehead to ponder your deepest questions, like: ‘Who wants a treat’? My world has been turned upside down. My owner died suddenly and I was
put into foster care. I spent the first part of my life in the company of my home pack of dogs so I am used to being around other dogs of all sizes. One of the larger dogs used to pick on me so I am a little wary of new dogs. My self confidence is in need of a boost. I sleep in a crate at night, deep under the covers, but I’d happily move into
the big bed with you if you’d let me be your snuggle bunny. I love to play fetch and will endlessly chase a ball for nothing more than your excited cheers and a back rub.
When my foster family is out during the day, I am left out and about with two other furry friends, without causing mayhem. I usually snuggle up to one of them on the sofa for a nap. When my people come back home I am so excited that I leap into their arms for a smooch or two. In my home environment, I am sweet, loving and am like sticky tape to the humans in the house. If you think you could use a dachshund shaped hot water bottle for your lap, I’m your girl!
And now a few words from my foster mom:
Megan is a cherished house guest that will devote herself entirely to her family. We’ve really been enjoying her company, as she has an abundance of love for all members of our family. Megan listens well to corrections, has an excellent potty routine, and takes well to being groomed. We have been working hard to help Megan slowly gain her confidence through training. Although she currently resides happily with two other dogs that are both larger than she is, on walks when she sees new dogs she will
bark in an effort to guard her people and herself. Her new home will have to continue this training with patience to ensure that her reactive behavior
continues to diminish.
