When I arrived, my name was Wednesday, but I was so scared, I didn’t know my name from any other day of the week. The kind people here gave me a friendlier name – Pumpkin. I was injured by a new dog who came to live with my family. We had to be separated. She stayed. I came here. I used to have a big doggy “brother” who gave me confidence. It takes me a while to trust people, but when I do, I’m gentle and very loving. I’ve learned to enjoy walking on leash, especially with a male dog buddy. I’m also learning not to be afraid of going indoors. The volunteers have learned something from me: I’m highly motivated by chicken (the food, not the birds)! With time, patience, and preferably another “brother,” I’ll be a beloved addition to your family.
