Terrier / Mixed (short coat) : : Female : : Young : : Small
Hi ! My name is Essie . I was abandoned as a young puppy at a dirt pit . I was very frightened of everyone . I would run and hide in a culvert where no one could see me. I slept in the tall grass and briar patches . After several months , one of the workers gained my trust . He fed me lots of biscuits and chicken . I am am very smart and loyal . Even though I was alone for so long , I am very affectionate and adore attention from people . I am learning to walk on a leash . I do well in a crate . I am ok with the kitty cats. I have not learned to play with toys yet , but I hope to figure it out soon .I am house trained . I am getting to experience love and care from people .
