  • Details: “Be real, be yourself, be unique, be true, be honest, be humble, be happy….” Look at my pout, I am not here to write you a love letter, I’m here to tell you my story. All the wrinkles and sunshine that goes with it!
    So take a second, stable the horses (or park the car) and let me tell you the word from the bird (the truth).
    “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring”. I’m a playful girl who loves my people, I’m on the hook you could say with most people. I’ve been misunderstood, and judged as a brindle bombshell but I’m MUCH more then that. I am finally being listened to, allowed to be a star that deserves to twinkle.
    I am done with the glam and glitter, I want to just rest, sleep and dream. I am a bit of a couch potato to be honest, cuddling with a pillow or my foster parents and their friends are even better. I love to perch on the back of the couch and generally fall asleep there, so I guess I’m part cat….speaking of cats, I have to be honest here. I find them to be pesky unreliable fellows, I chase them and then the heat (police) shows up which just gets me into trouble.
    In fact this is true about dogs as well, I prefer an only pet home. I have lived with other dogs but my inclination is to not trust 4 legged critters. I’m a sensitive girl so I need to find a perfect home, Underdogs and my foster parents said they will know when the right home comes along! I might not be the easiest dog, but if you can’t handle me at my worst you don’t deserve me at my best.
    I want a family that will take the time to get to know me, to just sit and hang. One that will accept me for more then what it appears. Most of my reactions are due to insecurity and too much stimulation, and this is often hard for people to understand. I’ll never be a dog park dog, or one that can go for a stroll during rush hour. I prefer to exercise my mind with fun games that build my confidence, and aren’t so overwhelming.
    I want to know what home is, and be with people that love me, not people who force or push me too far. I still shudder when a loud noise wakes me, and I need reassurance when this happens, even better wrap me in a warm blanket! These are my wrinkles, the skinny, my gringles (worries)…. I am learning who I am, and this discovery is exciting, and scary so bear with me. I am more then what my pictures tell you, I am an individual, looking for someone who wants to share secrets, grow together and find adventure in a quiet, humble sort of way.
    In short razz my berries and apply today! .

  • Details:Hey guys, it’s me Vada again. Unfortunately my last home didn’t end up working out, and I find myself back with the good folks at Underdogs. Luckily, though, I am living with wonderful people that are teaching me all kinds of new things. I came back with some new anxiety, sometimes new people can worry me a little, and other times I love being around new people. It’s all about understanding my threshold and my learning process. I am getting better everyday though, at least that’s what my foster mom and this amazing trainer named Sheila with Hudson’s Hounds keeps telling me. I do love having four legged friends too. I am still a young pup, just over a year old, so I need to remember that I have to take breaks in play, but it is just so fun I don’t remember to stop. That can frustrate my friends sometimes, so it’s good to have reminders. As you can probably see, I have beautiful long legs, so long in fact that I can trip over them when getting too excited. So while my beauty is something to be in awe of, my grace still needs some work. I now know exactly what I need in my forever home. Someone who understands, or is willing to treat me well, and by well I mean, lots of yummy treats, a warm bed, someone to snuggle with, and someone that is willing to only be force free with me. I am too sensitive of a girl to be with someone that is super loud, or forceful with their handling. I believe it was Mark Twain that once said, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” and that really sums up how I want to live the rest of my life. If you think you can provide me with the happiness I want, please send my ladies an application. I can’t wait to meet you!
