Boy oh boy was this a trip! I have come a long way and still have some to go, but I hope this all ends up with me in a great home!

I am a very peculiar girl, but not in a bad way. I think I just haven't experienced a lot of the things you American people do with your dogs!?

I would love to have a home as the only dog. I wouldn't say I am completely against meeting other dogs, but I need more time and practice before I can feel completely comfortable. So living with one would probably be way too much. I would love to work on this in my new home and get better and better at it. I think my inexperience hinders me here.

I would love to get attention all day long. I'm not super into toys, although I am learning they can be fun. Can I tell you a secret?? I think my favorite thing to play with is YOU! That's right! I love it when my human friends jog around, playbow to me, get me all excited and run around some more. It is the most fun game I've ever played! I get the zoomies and start running around and will playbow back at you and then dodge and juke you out of your shoes!

I do have some sensitivities. The first being strangers. If you let me take the time to get to know you then I am much more comfortable than if you rush me. The second sensitivity is my ears. When I arrived at Yankee from Turkey, I had a pretty bad ear infection on top of a wounded and bloody ear. So I can be a little head shy and really am not sure about people touching my ears until I am comfortable with you. Then the last sensitivity is my skin. I have sensitive skin so keeping a consistent diet is best and also taking my daily meds for any itching is helping a lot!

I'm hoping that you will find me cute and fun to play with even though it means you have to play back! It is a fun game, I promise!
