Super sweet Susie, our newest arrival and a Boston mix, came to us from a hoarding situation. She hasn't had the best life so far, or much of one at all, in her four years on earth. Normal doggy life has only been a dream for Susie. She's lacking social skills and is extremely timid and shy. But her foster mom believes she just needs the right home, where she can be loved and feel safe for her to bloom. Read on for more:

Age: 4 years old

Weight: 24 pounds

Breed: Boston terrier mix

Health: Allergic to chicken but otherwise very healthy

Demeanor: Affectionate, sweet, timid/shy, loner, curious, submissive

Likes: Prefers women, being held, sitting in laps, going for walks, belly rubs, treats (cheese flavored are her favorite)

Dislikes: Strangers, unfamiliar surroundings, new experiences

Manners: Housebroken, crate trained, needs a little work on leash, learning verbal commands

Fenced Yard Required: Preferred. She'd love to explore on her own in safety. If no fence, she must be kept on leash

Tidbits: As mentioned above, Susie came from some unfortunate circumstances. Despite her fear of people and new situations, her foster mama says she has great potential to be a loving and wonderful companion. Once she trusts you, she's very affectionate and sweet. She tends to prefer women over men and would likely be happiest as an only pet. She has not been tested with children.

Her next home should be prepared to provide Susie with patience as she learns to trust. They should be willing to work with her anxiety, giving her structure and plenty of praise as her confidence grows. There are four years to be made up - extra love, extra play time, extra everything for Susie!
