On Medical Hold
Yeeeeeeehawwww! I'm Mattie Jane, and I LOOOOOOOVE life!!! I am a very fun, very sweet girl who has realized just how wonderful life is since being rescued from Hurricane Harvey and coming to Young at Heart! I mean, I get to meet all sorts of new friends, I have a big yard to enjoy, soft beds, lots of treats, and nice people! I love it! I'm happy happy happy all the time! I am being treated for Heartworm disease, but once my treatment is over, I will be ready for my forever family. Now, I am very enthusiastic about a lot of things, but my shy side comes out when I am scared. Like when I first came here, I was just scared of everything. But with love and time and patience, I now know that life is so good. But I still get nervous with new things, like an outing to a store, or meeting another dog - I get really nervous meeting other dogs, so mellow dogs who are patient and understand another dog may be nervous would be a good match for me. I am very treat motivated and am good in the house. I can't run around while going through my treatment, so I have to do a lot of leash walking.... let's just say, I'm still learning how to be a good girl on a leash, but I'm getting better each week! I wasn't ever on a leash before in my life, so it's a whole new experience for me! Anyway, I can't wait to find my forever family, and hope that I will find one that is patient and loving and who will love me as much as I love them, because I love a LOT!
