And now a few words from me:
My name is Whoopsie; I’m a little over 3 years old and very small long weighing in at only 6 pounds but I can guarantee you it’s 6 pounds of pure love and adoration. I’m enjoying all the attention my foster mum is giving me; she takes me out for walks and I am discovering that it’s a really big world out there, so many things to find out about. I’ll need some more practice with leash walking, but so far I am doing well. My housetraining is a work in progress but I am improving every day. I enjoy my crate but have also discovered the joy of cuddling with my Foster Mum on the sofa and how good a tummy rub really feels. I do get frightened easily, but I hope I’ll get over that – love, patience and a kind heart will really help me overcome my fears.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Whoopsie is the most delightful, sweet wee girl I have had the pleasure of fostering. She is very petite, but she is all dog. When she is settled she thinks with her nose, however, when she is feeling anxious or unsure her behavour can be more unpredictable. She will startle very easily and run from you. She may trot in a small circle repeatedly to express her anxiety. She doesn’t usually go too far and circles back to you. She has settled a lot since she arrived and I think she will be fine. We are working on handling her entire body, holding her paws and gently and manipulating her toes. She is comfortable being stroked on her body and she has relaxed when rolled over and held in my arms. I want her to know that hands are for loving not hurting. She is excited to greet you when you return from being away and has a very happy dance that she shows off proudly. She would not likely be suitable for a young family with small children. She will be the apple of someones eye for her whole life.
