Gosh, the world is a big scary place!!!

I admit it, I'm shy.  I am perfectly happy at home with my foster family and when I go out on walks in the neighborhood.   I feel safe and I have a good time.  But, I get a little scared when I go to new places, or to places where there are a lot of people and animals.  I get to worrying what all those people are doing and then I wonder why they're all looking at me.  My foster mom says it's because I'm beautiful, but I'm not so sure.  Sometimes the people come right up to me and want to touch me and give me treats.  If there's just one of them I can be OK with that, but if there's more or if they move quick I just have to bark.  I'm hoping if I make noise, everyone will back up a bit and give me space.  I'm not really trying to scare anyone.   My foster family is working to help me conquer my fear by taking me to friendly new places so I can see that everything is really OK.  Yesterday we went to Pet Food Express.   They have LOTS of treats and toys there!   They also have an interesting smelling cat and lots of nice people who know how to make me feel comfortable.  I had a great time.  We're going back there soon!

Cities can be so overwhelming for the dogs. You are so beautiful that it sounds like you you will get a lot of attention; it's so great your foster family is taking you to so many new places to help with your fear!
