Hello everyone 🙂 My name is Dottie and I’d like to tell you about myself and share my dream with you…

I came into this world on 27th April 2013 so I’m now 3 years old! I live with a wonderful family who love me very much, after the people they got me from took me away from my Mummy… They didn’t know at the time but I was very young and scared, you see I was only 6 weeks old and I didn’t know how to be a big dog yet! My Mummy and the rest of my brothers and sisters hadn’t finished showing me how to play with other doggie friends, or how to be a brave girl and enjoy life 😦

I tried to show my new family I was a big tough girl, but then they were sent some paperwork and realised I was only a baby and this made them very sad that I didn’t get to spend more time with my family, but I had a new family now and I was all about exploring 😉 …That was until one day, when I was about 11 weeks old; I thought that it would be a good idea to jump off a chair in the garden to try and get some food I could see on the table… It didn’t end very well… I ended up hurting my leg real bad and the doggie doctor had to put some pins and wires in there to fix me again so that I could get back to my exploring and playing 🙂

It took a while, but life was good and I played with my doggie and hooman friends in the park… Playing is good and it makes me happy 🙂 …especially playing ball which is super exciting!!

Now let me tell you… I… am… the MOST AMAZING DOG you could ever wish for! I love sleeping alllllll night, and I do love my crate because that’s my space and my Mummy or Daddy let me got to the toilet before I put myself to bed… This is one of my favouritest things because they give me a goodnight kiss, tell me to have sweet dreams, and snuggle me into my duvet 🙂 Mmmmmmm doggie heaven You can’t beat snuggling your head into your duvet where it’s all warm and dreaming about running through the long grass, and playing with your friends in the sunshine 🙂

I love the seaside, food, and playing with my ball… I love swimming and playing with the hosepipe as it’s really splashy and GREEEAAATTT fun 🙂and then rolling around in the grass…… Ohhhhh that’s nice 😀 And I’m a quick learner who loves to make my family happy because when they are happy, they give me love and cuddles, and cuddles and love, and……. you get the picture 😉 haha

But now you have come to the sad bit of my story 😦 When I was about 8 months old a big black dog really hurt me, especially on my ear… The doggie doctor gave me antibiotics and an injection with sedatives that they said would help calm me down 😦 The mean dog really scared me so I knew I had to be careful with other doggies if I didn’t already know them… A few months later though, in 2014 two border collies tried to hurt me again at the park, but luckily I managed to stop them from hurting me even though I was really scared…

After that I stayed away from dogs that I didn’t know just in case they wanted to bite me… But I learnt the hard way that you can’t trust anyone 😦 My friend (the Labrador) and me were out with our families one day and my friend attacked me too! I was bitten on my legs and shoulder, and although I did bite back I didn’t do it hard because it was my friend 😥 and I didn’t want to hurt my friend… but now I don’t know who to trust…

So…. These days my dreams are often troubled because I’m not happy where I live as I’m scared a lot of the time… I have lots of energy but I sometimes get in trouble when I’m off lead (…I came back soggy and dirty one time after disappearing for an hour and a half… Time really does fly when you’re having fun 😉 ) I stay on my lead even though I do come back when I’m called, because I might get distracted and end up in trouble again, but more importantly because I’m scared of other dogs and soooo many other things that I panic…

My family love me sooooo much but they have said that they know I am not having a happy life with them… I have got noisy, barky dogs all around me at home and they make me scared 😦 but my family can’t afford to move anywhere else. Everything is scaring me these days and I don’t know how to make it stop! They think that I need to live somewhere where I can run and play and be happy again 🙂 and I must admit that in my dreams I would like that too 🙂 So my dream is to be happy again, and to not be scared so they have helped me set up a Facebook page to find a new family…

I prefer women and I’m not keen on children or other dogs now (they make me nervous) but I just KNOW that a new family would love me… After all, I’m BEAAAUUUTTTIIFFFUUULLLL

My family love me that much that they are happy to let me go… but ONLY to the right family 🙂 Could you help me be happy and confident again? Can you help me make my HAPPY DREAM that I used to have come true? I still have it sometimes; where I’m running in the sunshine, in the long grass… and I’m happy again……..
