Finally, I turned 9 and my previous owner said I was to old and dumped me at a shelter. Whaaaat? That place was full of barking dogs in wire kennels.
One day someone came and took me out of the Shelter. After a couple of days, I was loaded into a car and I was off on a new adventure. I slept through most of it, but every couple of hours I got a new driver and a new car. I slept some more overnight, and then I did it all over again the next day. Everyone in the cars put their hands on me and I liked it! It felt so good to have loving human hands touching my body. The drivers of the last car really loved me up.
I finally made it to my foster home and at this home, I learned a LOT about human touch, and KISSES! This is where I figured out that my name is Autumn! I also discovered that kibble really IS food, and now I’m WILD for it! Then I had another new experience called a bath. Yuck! I never had one of those before. After the bath, everyone wanted to touch me and commented about how soft I felt. I also had to learn how to behave in a house. Apparently, I am not supposed to pee or poop in the house. I learned that rule in a little over a week and have been good about it ever since.
So here is the thing: I’m looking for a forever home. I want a home that I don’t have to share with any other dogs. Now that I know about human touch and love and good food, I want it all for myself. I don’t want to share it with other dogs. When I was with my previous owner, I lived in a kennel by myself. When another dog did come to visit, I ended up having puppies!!! Do you see why I want to be by myself? I have been around cats – but they tell me that I love them a bit too much. For some reason my foster Mama says NO! LEAVE THE KITTY ALONE! One thing you should know: I have something called arthritis. It makes it hard for me to do steps, especially if they are steep steps. But I’ll tell you a secret – they don’t stop me from going after a kitty…
I am ready for real forever home. Can I come live in YOUR home? Will you love me more than anything, forever? Please, no other dogs, I want it to be just US!
UPDATED BIO FOR AUTUMN – June 2018
Hi from Autumn’s foster mom! I just wanted to updated Autumn’s bio, and let you know what a sweet girl she is. This girl loves, LOVES, L-O-V-E-S to be with her people. She wants to be in the same room as I am, even though she usually just wants to lie at my feet or be on the couch next to me. She is not super active, as you might expect of an older girl. She has learned that outside is the only place to go potty, and we are progressing nicely with walking (not pulling) on a leash. Autumn loves to chase and chew her Jolly Ball. I started her in a crate whenever I left the house, but now she is free to roam the house. She never gets in to trouble. This girl is a GOOD sleeper. You can tell by the loud snoring! Autumn had a rough start before coming in to rescue, and now that she realizes how nice attention, and pets and treats are she does not want to share them with other dogs in the house. She really needs to be an only dog. She is very birdy – really anything that flies can get her attention – birds, leaves, Frisbees. Autumn is 9 years old and weighs 51 pounds. Might she be the one you’ve been looking for? 11/7/18 10:50 AM
