Hi! My new name is Shorty. Dis nice guy named Stephen came on Wednesday and got me outta
dat shelter in Lawton,
Oklahoma where I was since Dec. 12! He took me home wif him for a couple days den we took
a road trip to Texas and now I'm in dis Land of the Giants place here in Dallas.
I'm just resting over here outta da way, I'm not sure about being in dis house.
My foster mom sez I've been groomed (although horribly) about 8 weeks ago. I have a very
soft, curly coat,
(whatever dat means).
My foster mom sez I look like a Kerry Blue with cropped ears whatever dat means.
Dis is Harleigh in front of me, she is bigger den me!
I'm not a very big guy, I'm 24 inches tall.
My eyebrows need to grow out, but dis is my face.
My foster mom sez she will give me a haircut dis weekend when it warms up.
Its pretty cold today and it might snow tomorrow (New Year's Day 2002)
Shorty is a very sweet boy, but he
has some emotional issues. I think he has lived most of his life in
a crate with very little human contact. He wants to be where every body else is but he doesn't
know how to react to being touched and loved on. He drops his head and just kinda freezes.
He doesn't pull away,
he just doesn't know. He doesn't mind me cleaning out his icky ears, which I do several times a
He wants to play with my grrrrlz but he doesn't know how to do that either.
he ran after Kirbie while she fetched her ball or kong but he just follows her. He thought he
playing but you can tell he doesn't know. He will chew on the toys in his crate I gave him and
the new stuffed walrus I gave to him. He will chew on toys, he just doesn't know about interacting
with people or other dogs.
I think Shorty will make a very nice boy to go with a doggie sister. He needs the strength of the other
dogs to draw on so he feels comfortable. He is a very sweet boy but he will need long term
special attention to overcome being neglected for so long. Shorty is prolly around 3-4 years old.
