Well, I have been here a week and I Like It!!!
I have a new home, a new family, a new sister, and a new name!
My previous owners called me Suki. When Harnessed to Hope rescued me they called me Georgia, and my new family call me Georgie Girl.
I don't remember anything about my previous life up until I was rescued by Harnessed to Hope. All I remember was that I was in a shelter where they wanted to kill me and my puppies. A nice lady knew someone who voluntered for Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue. She called her and they sent us up north to Pennsylvania to be fostered by a really nice lady. This nice lady, named Gloria, took me and my puppies into her home amd took care of us. We stayed with her for five weeks.
Then two of my puppies and me went to an event with Gloria in Reading, PA. There were a lot of people there, and some more of the Harnessed to Hope volunteers - two of these volunteers were my new Mommy & Daddy. I went home with them from the event as a foster dog.
When I got to their house I was scared, they had another dog, her name is Magic. We met Magic outside of her house so she would not feel threatened. She seemed OK. We just checked each other out, then we went into the house.
It was scary. I did not want to get out of the corner by the stairs. I felt safe there. My new Mommy and Daddy brought food and water out to me. I stayed there the next day too.
Tuesday, I started to get out of my spot a little at a time but Magic was being a bully. She would come over to me and jump at me. Mommy says she was playing, but she was scaring me. This went on for most of the day and some of the next. By Thursday, I was till scared but not as much. I was out of my spot for longer amounts of time without Magic being a bully, and when she did try to bully me, I did not run back to my spot instead I just dropped to the ground so that she would leave me alone - it worked!.
Over the weekend, I got a little braver. When Magic would try to bully me I did not always drop to the ground, I tried sitting instead, that worked too! Now when sghe tries to bully me - which is not too often - I either just sit or I just walk away.
I am still afraid of the indoor steps. They are so high and there are so many of them. When Mommy, Daddy & Magic go to sleep they try to get me to walk up the steps - no way! I'm not going up there. They try all sorts of stuff, but I will not budge! One night they got me halfway up when Magic decided to bully me and push me back down the steps. That was it, I had enough --m no more steps for me!
