An adotable dog in Radnor, PA

Hi everyone, my name is Guppy. I came from a home that didn't know how to handle or treat a dog. I was scared many nights and am still recovering from my previous life. I was very wary when I came to the shelter. I didn't know what to expect, more of the same? It took me a little time to trust some of the staff. I've come to learn that they are very nice and just want the best for me. I still don't like to be picked up very often, but I'm working on it.

I've experienced many wonderful things since I've been at Francisvale. I love pita chips! Mmm Calo! Someday maybe I will travel to Greece and taste the best pitas ever. I've also become quite fond of peanut butter. I must say I've formed a little addiction and I've heard the "rehab" word passed around. They'll never do it!

Some other things I enjoy are exploring. I like to wander around the attic and just find all types of different items and hiding places. It's a real adventure. I'm just starting to learn how to play with toys. I never had toys in my old home. I was a little confused about what to do with the stuffed creature, but I'm starting to figure it out. Oh, one more thing, I love to bury myself under the covers. I guess it kind of goes a long with my enjoyment of exploring.

I'm comfortable enough now here at the shelter that I will come up and say hi to you if you come and meet me. As long as your sweet to me and take it slow everything else will fall into place. I love to cuddle and hope to find a new home that will give me all their love so I can truly trust again. I hope to meet you soon.
