When Autumn made her way into a foster home after living on her own on the streets for months, she had no idea she would be treated like a queen, and allowed to be part of a human family! The thought of being someone's pet,treated to vet care, good food, and attention from humans, was the last thing she expected. No more would there be angry shouts to leave, or rocks thrown to keep her away from the back door, or days and nights of hunger, thirst, and cold. She was now part of a pack, both human and canine, and was going to become integrated, even if it was not the first thing on her mind. Her foster mom and family have worked hard to get her to understand that in addition to the perks of being a family member, there are also expectations. Included in those are socialization, leash walking, and being kind.  Autumn has done well with socialization, and is working hard on being kind to the other dogs and cats in the household, but leashwalking is still a challenge for her, and one she will probably be unhappy about working on. Stubbornness will get her nowhere, however, as her foster family is just as determined that she figure it out.  If you are looking for a slight challenge, beautiful, and good with other dogs and cats, look no further! Autumn is one for you!
