Found my forever- home :)

Meet Bailey, she's a 4 year old Maltese mix. She was a puppy mill dog that was abandoned with 8 others dogs by a shelter. They were all malnourished, dirty and they've been de-barked.
Initially I wanted to only foster her (I didn't even know how she looked like!!!) but fell in love, so decided to give her a forever home smile This is my first time adopting a rescued dog, so you guys will see me here asking all sorts of questions. It's also my first time owning a toy dog..

When I first got her, she was scared of everything. All she did was stay in her cage, but now (after a month), she's much better. She's still paranoid, walks in circles, runs and hide when you approach her too quickly but she's not as afraid of people, she even barks at strangers now (a very hoarse bark). Doesn't know how to play but she sticks to me like glue.

Even though she's 4, she acts like a puppy, everything is new to her. I guess she was probably caged up for all those years.
Anywhoooo, I think she looks much healthier and happier when I first got her, don't you? smile
(The picture of me and her, and of her and a black dog is when I first gotten her)
