Bunny, the Bichon Frise puppy mill survivor, is finally learning to trust me. She doesn't run away from me as fast as she used to. She will go in and out the door even when I'm standing nearby. She barks when I leave the room and wags her tail when I come back in. She seems more relaxed and happier - and I finally can see her starting to become a "real dog", and maybe someday have a real family of her own!
Reason #2: Roxy is Smarter
Roxy has been attending Canine Good Citizen classes and has learned to sit on command, lie down on command, stay until released, and sit quietly while being petted. She did jump on the UPS guy when he came to deliver packages, but I can't blame her. I can barely contain my excitement everytime the UPS guy shows up too. I am hopeful that she will pass her CGC test with no problems in just a few more weeks.
Reason #3: Ziggy is Famouser...errr..More Famous
He's managed to make 99 friends on Facebook so far. He's also been featured on the Facebook pages of Shelter Pet Project, Echo the Deaf Pittie Mix, and may soon be featured by StubbyDog Project. With so many wonderful people helping to spread the word about him, he may someday find his very own adoptive home!
