Eevee is 9ish years old and weighs 12 pounds. “I will confess upfront that I am a real mess and I am afraid no one will ever want to take a chance on me again. I really want to be better, but it is so hard sometimes after having lived in and out of animal shelters and real homes. I just wait for … someone to take me home and give me love as all of us are. I am so afraid when I get adopted that I will be sent away again that I seem to sabotage myself by acting bad. I don’t want to and I really try, but it never seems to work out. I work a little harder every time and all I crave is for someone to love and protect me. When I am home with my people I am well-behaved and I listen well. I respond to: gentle, sit, shake and hugs. Hugs is my favorite and I will give them when asked, or not asked. I am very athletic and have kept my weight to 12 pounds. Take me to the beach and I will run for miles. I love my walks. Here are some of my issues. I just don’t get along with dogs, cats or kids. They all scare me and I respond by trying to bite, even though I don’t have any front teeth so it doesn’t really do much. All bark, no bite really. I think it is best to have one human to love me and I will love them back. I would like a quiet home with no other 4-leggeds or little people. I have major anxiety separation issues because of my past. I really don’t want to be left alone, but if you take me out to pee before you leave and crate me then I will be ok–except – haha – I will bark in the crate the whole time you are gone. But, you won’t hear me – right? Oh wait, the neighbors might though. Please don’t be gone more than 3 hours though. Then I will worry that you aren’t coming back. I am getting better at not peeing in the house when I am anxious. I will start with my pee pad, but then I move on to the rug and maybe the chair if you don’t notice that I need to go out.. If you leave me too long in the car I just might poop there. It’s unpleasant for everyone. My present human says I have mellowed, but I still don’t like kids, cats or dogs. If you are worried that I am excitable and cannot be calm ever when you are gone – note that I now have a prescription for Prozac. Woohoo. It’s just for dogs though, so don’t get so excited that you might be wanting some. OK, I have been honest with you all and hope there is someone out there who is patient, willing and able to take me on. I truly hope this move will be my last. Interested in Eevee? The first step is to fill out our online Adoption Application. NOTE: All of our dogs live in foster homes so it is not possible to set up a meet and greet prior to submitting an adoption application. Filling out an application doesn’t obligate you to adopt, but it does save your place in line if there are multiple people interested. If our Adoption Coordinator determines you are a good match they will contact you. This is a great opportunity for you to find out more about Eevee and decide if you would like to set up a meet and greet. Adoption fee is $150, and there’s a 10% discount for senior citizens and veterans. We apologize, but we are not able to answer individual questions about our dogs. We are a small, all-volunteer organization and we receive hundreds of inquiries. If you want to learn more about a particular dog, then please submit an Adoption Application. If your application is chosen, you will have the opportunity to meet the dog and to get answers to all of your questions. Thank you for your understanding.
