 – THIS DOG IS NOT BEING HOMED THROUGH THE PIXIE PROJECT. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING; PLEASE CONTACT KELSIE AT THE INFO BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION –

I’m going by the name Wednesday, Wendy if you prefer. I was dropped off at the vet’s office for surgery (spaying) and picked up by another person, completely unaware of the arrangements that had been made for me.
Originally I lived on a farm in less then ideal conditions, but today I have been attending boarding school, and I am doing really well!
I will admit I can be a sassy country girl, but I mean well. I have picked up some new sports, playing tennis ball fetch and jogging. I’m excelling at my recall work (coming when called) and my self-control at door ways or around food. I’m not always super hyper though, I love my quiet time too. I’m an active movie watcher; I like Lady and the Tramp and Homeward Bound.
I’m majoring in dog language, and I wouldn’t mind a friendly and gentle dog to show me the rules in my new home.
My nickname is Monkey. You will see why when you meet me but I will say I’m very good at social learning (monkey see monkey do). So if there is a dog already living in the family, it’s best if they are the calm quiet type because I would be happy to join in any shenanigans. I have been known to get myself into trouble when I have a friend to do it with me.
I LOVE children and long walks on the beach. No, I really do love dog savvy and gentle children. I’m also a fan of their food too. Just as a note I should never be left unattended with young children especially due to my small size. (13lb).
My biggest fear, and the one I’m in counseling for, is adult humans. It does not matter their size, sex, race, or what they are wearing. I just don’t like strangers. In my old home I could never be sure if the people who came around were friend or foe, and today I’m still haunted by my not-so-distant past. Some days are better than others and my counselor says I’m improving.
The last thought I would like to tell my future family is please don’t pull me from school… I’m finally getting the education I deserve and if I have to move to a new school or be home schooled that’s okay, I just want to keep learning. I think I’m finally understanding my purpose in life, maybe I could be a doctor one day… a dog can dream.
My current teacher/counselor is willing to offer free introduction trainings and continued two months of training online or in person if you live close enough. She believes in me and I hope that you will too.
I look forward to meeting you, even though I will probably test (shy away and bark at) you before I allow you into my life. It’s my way of finding out your true intentions. I have a very tight circle of friends that I hold very close, and I never forget a friendly face. I’m a bit of a romantic that way and I fall hard in love. I would like to fall in love just one more time, with my permanent family, and not worry about heartbreaks any more.
Once I’m settled I promise to be a really good dog. I don’t potty in the house, I sit, down, shake, roll over, and spin on command. I walk nicely on a leash and come when called. Things are looking up. This is the last step in my journey to a new life.
Female/Spayed/13lb/3 years in June/Up to date on vaccines.
