Hello! My name is Gracie aka Gracie Girl.
When you first meet me, I will be shy and timid, but watch out, I warm up real quick and will expect cuddles VERY often. My favourite things are to cuddle and to go for walks. Rain or snow won’t stop me, I am always ready to go! I can be curious and sometimes bossy when I meet other dogs on walks, but I’ve learned to sniff them and walk away. My new family will need to be confident and keep encouraging me that it’s ok.
I get very attached to my family. If I know they are leaving, I will start to cry. The best thing my foster family does is put me in my crate with nice blankets and cover it with a blanket on top. I usually just lie down and sleep, so by the time they are out of the house, I am fast asleep (very sneaky)! I sleep at night in my crate with a blanket on top too (my version of black out curtains).
I am on some anxiety medication that I need to stay on top of too – it’s very important I take them every day or else I am just not myself.
I hope to find a quiet family that is home often with no kids. Kids make me nervous. I really like to be the centre of attention. In fact, sometimes I demand it, so I also need to be in a home where I’m shown I don’t have to be the boss like I think I am, and I can just be a dog! I have so much love to give and my foster mom always tells me I’m the sweetest most cuddly girl ever!
Gracie is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations.
