Hi there my name is Mousey but my foster family calls me Libby! My foster parents say I’m the sweetest but they really hope I will learn to trust others too so others can see just how sweet I am. They say if you take one look at my piercing eyes you can see into my soul. I came to Minnesota from Kentucky and was in a shelter for some time and I was so scared I would spend my days hiding under a pile of blankets. I didn’t find comfort in any humans until my foster parents, I have learned to trust them but I am still working on my trust in strangers. My foster parents say that a dog savvy owner will be very beneficial to help instill confidence in me and continue to work on my training. When I see new people I bark and growl and I can look really mean but I’m doing it because I’m scared. It would be best for me to be in a home that doesn’t have a lot of visitors and to have a bit of space outside because I have a hard time having fun outside when I’m making sure the neighbors are staying put. I stay in the crate during the day and I keep my crate clean and I’m going potty on a schedule!
I love going on walks and my interaction with all dogs has been great. I really look to other dogs to know that everything is okay. My new home should have confident dog already in the home so I can continue my socialization training through them. Once we get over our initial meeting, I will love you more than you can imagine. I am a great cuddle buddy; I do great in car rides and just really can’t get enough love! Please fill out an application if you would like to meet me or learn more about me!
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
