eet Our own deaf
Dane  Ambassador


Adopted 11/21/05


Just a update on Snowflake, she is doing excellent.  Took her a while to come in the house, then once she was inside she wouldn't venture very far for a while.  Her and JaJa get along great.  JaJa is the only one she trusts right now.  She doesn't bother the cats, but she does like to run up on them and sniff them.  She is a sweet heart, and very afraid of everything.  Poor thing, I just don't get how people can be so mean.  But I can tell over time, a long time, she will learn to trust her new family to some extent.  I would like to keep her this week,  if that is ok.  See how she does in a normal work and school week with the family.  I will email you next weekend.  I'm growing very attached to her, as are my kids, and would
love to keep her.  I will keep you posted.

Thanks so much,

Hi Marc, thought I would drop you a line and let you know everything is going perfect with snowflake. She still has her moments of skittishness, but not as many.

Snowflake came to us along with her brother Brawley from their owner/breeder in Southern California. There was another dog in the house that mauled Brawley pretty good. They decided to turn both over to us. Snow is the shy timid one of the pair. Not sure at this point how much of that will go away once she is away from Brawley. She really craves attention and affection, but she is afraid at first, and even once she gets to know you she is easily spooked. You just want to wrap your arms around her and squeeze, and tell her it will be okay. I think with some time here, she will come out of her shell. She clearly wants to. Like Brawley, she came to us with no apparent training. And like Brawley, she came noticeably underweight. In good condition and well cared for, but very thin. We are busy trying to fatten them both up.
