Pup-sonality:
My name is Xena, warrior princess.  Well, mostly princess.  I love to spend time with my loyal subjects, meaning my trusted humans and foster siblings.  I haven’t had the best start with humans in my short little life but I am learning to trust and love again.

I am a quiet dog most of the time and very cat-like.  I like to follow my humans around at my own distance and I decide when it’s time to cuddle.  I haven’t been around cats yet, so I’m not sure how I will feel about them.  I am still a dog though, and that means that I sometimes chew on things I’m not supposed to so I should always have appropriate chew toys available and supervision when trying out a new toy.  I am crate-trained and house-trained but due to my size, sometimes I need the help of a pee pad to get me through a long night.

I really love to play with other dogs and having another dog in my home gives me confidence and helps me to feel safe.  I also like to snuggle with other dogs and play tug of war.  I love to go for walks and my foster family says I’m great on a leash, but when meeting new people, I can sometimes act very nervous by shivering or barking, but with time and positive reinforcement, I’m sure I will be able to start to open up.

I enjoy belly rubs and good treats, and am very food motivated.  I will burrow myself under your covers each night and give you an 11-pound body warmer.  I’m just looking for the right family ready to be patient while I learn to trust them and to love me for all of my days.
