My name is Bandit. I’m happy to be safe with my foster mom and TEAM Dog Rescue. I spent months in a local shelter just after being surrendered by my owners daughter. No one wanted me and I’m not sure why? Do you know what its like to have no one loving you? The nice shelter staff were always telling people that I likely had a very difficult time before coming to the shelter and may not have been treated very well in the past. So, I’m pretty lucky things seem to be changing for me and I am now forever grateful to my foster mom and TEAM Dog Rescue. They are all committed to finding me the best forever home.
My foster mom has been working around the clock with me to make sure I know that humans are good and will not hurt me. She has been showing me lots of love and affection, but also boundaries so that I can learn to be a balanced dog. When I was brought to her house I spent the first few days having accidents in the home and i’m sure it was my nerves and really just not understanding the bathroom break process. I’m much better now and will do my business outside. I keep demonstrating to my foster mom that I am a very quick to learn.
I really enjoy going on walks with my foster mom. Sometimes I get scared and growl and pull on the leash, but with slow introductions I’m happy to greet everyone. I’m still getting used to being around other dogs, but my foster mom is working on slowly introducing me to other canine friends. It’s probably best if I go to a home with no kids, either. I have been enjoying the company of my two cat foster siblings. They are quite playful at all hours of the day, so at times I like to join in. More than anything, they just make me feel very welcome in this new home of mine.
I am ok in the car but can get nervous sometimes. I do seem to be enjoying the rides a little more now though, especially because I’m sure that no one will be taking me back to the shelter!
I am looking for a family to really help build my confidence and work with me on all of my insecurities . A family that I can love and trust and one that wont abandon me. I really deserve that.
