Meet Mystique! She was found stray,out in the country, with a litter of brand new babies. A good samaritan delivered her to a no kill shelter, where TGPR came across her. She was extremely underweight and terrified. It took MONTHS for her to begin to feel secure enough in the world to walk on a leash without collapsing in a puddle on the ground. Fast forward five months, and she is doing much better. She is still very shy and unsure, but she is progressing daily. The ideal home for this girl will be a patient family that doesn't have a ton of noise or chaos. She's going to need some more exposure work in order to be confident and comfortable in public settings such as restaurants or pet stores, but she will get there with the right support. She is SUPER sweet and cuddly. She does lick a LOT but we are working on that. We initially thought she would only ever tolerate other dogs, but one day she started playing with the resident dogs in her foster home, and now she doesn't stop! We do think she will be more successful in a home with another confident dog - both to assist in her own confidence, but also because she LOVES playing so much. Warning: She is a GP - she has found her voice and now barks in the yard. Note: Her happy place is digging. Her new family needs to be willing to build her a sandbox, and/or allow her to dig in the yard. She LIGHTS UP when she has somewhere to get dirty.

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend. The first to welcome, foremost to defend.
