Hi! I’m Bambi! I’m about six years old and until three months ago I didn’t realize that people could be nice. No one had ever cuddled and loved me or made sure I received any medical treatment. But my amazing foster mom and dad took me to the nice doctor and now I’m up to date on vaccines and have been spayed. Yay! No more babies for me! My teeth are all pearly white now too (well at least what is left of them), so I feel really pretty.
I really want to be your new best friend, but understandably, I’m cautious. I’m still learning what it means to be loved and cared for so it’s taking me a bit of time to realize some people are really nice. I’m not really into cuddling yet, but I hope to learn trust. However, I know that other dogs are the BEST! I love to lay in front of the fireplace with my foster brothers and I really hope my new home has a boy IG that I can be best buds with because I feel safer around my big foster brothers.
OK, so I’m really hoping you’re patient because I was never trained about rules or boundaries. My foster parents are trying to teach me that it’s rude to go potty just anywhere and I’m learning that potty pads or outdoors (when it’s not too cold or wet) is what’s acceptable, but it’s hard to remember that all the time. I’m also learning manners at mealtime because I’ve never had my own food bowl before. I used to share mealtime with 17 other dogs of various sizes at what you humans call a puppy mill. I just didn’t know there was anything better in life until now. So lots of things scare me and I really hope you can be patient and understanding so I have a chance to learn how to love and be loved. Do you need a little deer in your life? That me, Bambi!
