Hi, I’m Reina! I’m only 5 years old. I hit a bit of a rough patch recently but now, with VGSR’s help, it’s all smooth sailing from here!! I don’t understand what happened, but somehow I ended up in a place called a shelter. I didn’t like it there at all. It was noisy and chaotic and some of the residents were a little shady. Never a moment when I could relax. The people were nice but none of them were my people. I was sad and stressed. I got really thin and I developed something called IBD, but the doctor gave me a little pill I take every other day and I’m so much better now. I may have to always take the pill but maybe without all the stress of that shelter place I may get better and not have to take the pill at all, or maybe take less. No one knows for sure.
I must have been loved before the rough patch though because I LOVE people and I know a lot of house things - be quiet in my crate, bathrooms are outside, sit, down, come, drop, paw and, if there’s enough room and a treat involved, I’ll even roll over. I love car rides and I get really excited about it but I settle in pretty fast. I love to play ball; it’s my favorite thing.
I can be protective of my family but that’s my job. I don’t like people I don’t know coming into my house without an introduction - but once I’ve met them I like them too!!
I really like being in charge and bossing other dogs around so it would be less stressful for me (and you) to live with just people, especially people who like to be in charge so I don’t have to be. I’m so much happier when someone else makes all the decisions and I can concentrate on being a dog.
I need a little work on remembering to take things gently, and a refresher on “stay” wouldn’t hurt either. But I really want to do what my people want and I love to show off how smart I am so I think I’ll learn pretty fast. I’d really like a place I can call home…is it with you?
