People make me nervous. Like, really nervous. Can you please go slow with me? Y'know, let me meet you at my own pace. I like people, but it takes me a while to warm up to someone I've never met before. The shelter environment just really doesn't help, either. I'm nervous as is, then take me and put me in this loud, scary, smelly place and I'm getting set up to fail at seeming social. I'll flourish in a home, though. Get me out of here, let me get to know you, and I'm sure I will be a happy dog full of personality.

The way to my heart? Toys and food! I will find any toy in the yard and ask you to play tug with me, it is my favorite game! I also LOVE playing with dogs, I think every dog I meet is my new best friend! My dog friends have taught me that humans are not so scary and its ok to play with them, too. I've been working on my clicker training too and have learned to look to the person at the end of my leash for guidance when I get a little nervous.
