We adopted Trixie 2 days before Christmas. We had lost our dog a year and a half ago and I was feeling the need to have another dog to fill a void and my need to mother. She took to us right away even tho very very shy and scared. She acts like she has been mistreated at some point and is afraid if you raise your voice or show that she did something bad. But thru the 2 weeks we've had her she won't leave my side and is adjusting nicely. She's learning to trust me and know I love her and I'm not going to hurt her. She's a very sweet loving little dog and I am so happy to have her in my life.
