One day someone saw me being shaken and dumped out of a crate only to be abandoned at the Moab City Dog Park. I was so frightened that it took almost one and a half hours to rescue me. After that I was deathly afraid of everyone; even those who rescued and cared for me at the Animal Shelter. Because I am so tiny (barely weigh six pounds) and was so scared, I stayed at the back of my pen avoiding contact with everyone. Then one day a volunteer visiting Moab came and worked with me to help me get adopted. At first I was scared, then it felt safe when I was being held and cuddled. I even learned to walk with a leash. Then the weekend came and I had to wait until my volunteer came back. When she returned, I discovered something about myself. I loved to be cuddled and get kisses! I got to go with my volunteer for a home visit and was told how smart and sweet I am. And the next thing I know we were signing my forever home adoption papers!!! I now live on a ranch in Texas with my new mom and dad. I get to travel in style and go for walks and hikes. I play with my new doggie toys and sneak off with a sock now and then! I play a lot with my big 50lb. brother “Chief” who is super gentle with me. I have discovered what it is to be loved and have a regular life. I am now more curious than afraid and enjoy things like checking out the fall leaves rustling around and stretching out in soft grass. Oh, I love to see and bark at myself with a wagging tail in mirrors! I want to give big thanks to everyone at the City of Moab Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of Moab Valley for taking great care of me during my stay.
