Donna from PoochMatch spoke with me about Luna, who was named Bippity at the time. She was quite shy, but sweet. Luna had been rescued from a hoarding situation and wasn't used to people. I called my husband when I landed back in California to see if he thought we had the ability to help a shy pup become confident and he said yes.
We made arrangements to meet Luna that night. She ran away from us and hid at first, but once we had her in our arms and laps, she snuggled and got quite comfy. Our hearts were stolen. We took Luna home a few days later and she worked her magic on our hearts. She especially melted The Hubbs' heart. He's a sucker for puppy cuddles.
She is such a sweet and gentle puppy and we've been having a good time going through the learning process with her. Her first walk was spent with her cowering behind us and now she walks with head and tail up, beside or in front of us! We get to work on learning to heel soon! :) She's learning how to sit on command and how to fetch right now. She has also learned that she's not allowed to bark at Ellie.
All this to say, we are crazy (you may even say LUNAtics) for our puppy. We love introducing her to people and other dogs and helping her build her confidence. She is such a sweet cuddler, so even just hanging out is a joy. If she keeps heading in this direction, I may have a therapy dog in the next six months! I would love to share her sweetness with people who need it.
