    Hannah 8's Story . . .

    “Her foster family has been encouraging her to play with more traditional doggie toys instead of rocks…they are so much softer!”

    Hannah came to MAESSR when she was having problems with several of the very young dogs in her Pennsylvania home. Her family decided that Hannah would be happier living in a home with fewer dogs.
    Her foster family finds Hannah to be a wonderfully sweet girl that loves to cuddle and be with her people. For fun, this girl’s favorite toys are……ROCKS!  She will play fetch for hours with a rock. Her foster family has been encouraging her to play with more traditional doggie toys instead of rocks…they are so much softer!
    Reliably housetrained, Hannah also is crate trained.  If someone is home, however, Hannah does not want to be in her crate and makes it known by barking. The same is true if confined to a room and she knows that someone is home. If her family is going out, Hannah willingly enters her crate. This sweetie just wants to be with her people!

     Her foster family finds a crate unnecessary and gives her complete freedom in the house. At night Hannah likes to sleep in the big bed with her foster parents. If she’s going to lie down, this little princess wants to be on comfortable furniture, just like the humans!
    It was reported that Hannah has a fear of thunderstorms, fireworks, gun shots, and other loud popping noises. Even a popped bag upsets her. Her reaction is to run away from the offending noise.
    Hannah’s leash manners are a work in progress since she had not been on a leash much in her former home. Time and experience should remedy that. She has no problems riding in the car. Hannah was groomed recently and did very well. She also was a good girl at the vet where the staff loved her.
    Hannah is looking for a forever home to call her own and she would fit in with many families. Wouldn’t you love to snuggle with sweet Hannah?
