Hi there, my name is Beatrice but you can call me Bea for short! I am an extremely loving girl but shy when meeting new friends, I will need time to open up and feel comfortable when introduced to new people and environments. I have displayed some anxiety behaviors, such as cowering at fast movements and barking at new people. Due to my anxiousness, I have been started on medication to try and help me feel more relaxed and confident.
I'm a friendly girl that loves other dogs, cats and even kids! Sometimes I forget my size and like to jump up to say hello when greeting you and could accidentally knock over little ones, but I'm working on controlling my excitement! Like most shy/timid dogs, I do very well with other confident canine friends around and will need a home with another dog to teach me the ropes! I'm an active girl that loves to run and play fetch with a tennis ball! I'm a smart girl and know many basic commands already and am very obedient. I'm also completely potty trained and can be trusted with free roam of the house when my family isn't home. I enjoy sleeping in bed with my people but will also sleep on a dog bed next to you if you prefer that. I love to get belly and neck scratches whenever you are willing to give them!
Overall, I'm a happy girl that can't wait to find my new forever family! I'm looking for a patient and committed family that will continue to help build my confidence and allow me ample time to adjust and fully open up. I would love to meet you if I sound like the girl of your dreams!
