Blossom came to us a very scared little girl but now that she has adjusted, she is an absolute love who wants nothing more than to be in your lap, clap her paws together like a seal for treats, get belly rubs and cuddle with you all day long. Blossom does need some time to warm up due to past trauma/abuse. She can be scared to death of anyone coming near her at first and try to bite. But with time and patience (usually a couple weeks of giving her space and hand feeding her cheese (her favorite)) she will open her heart to you and loves to come into my lap, look up at you with her big brown eyes and trust your.
If you can give her that time and show her you can be trusted and love her, she will be your little best friend and a delightful addition to someone’s family. She is perfectly potty-trained (not one accident!), loves to lie in the sunshine outside and loves to safely explore in a secure backyard (while supervised). She doesn’t walk on a leash yet so she will need help learning. She’s an absolute doll and despite what must have been a very traumatic past, she just wants to love and be loved. Blossom does resource guard a bit and just doesn’t like to be touched when she is in her bed or near her blankets. A gal needs her beauty sleep. We get it!
Again, it may take time for her to warm up to her forever home, but she is absolutely worth the wait. She’d be the perfect dog for a single person or couple who can give her the love and attention she craves and deserves. A home without other pets or children is a must.
