Response to MiniMe (Reply #2)

3. Hi, MM! Yes...

It took her only a day to bond with me - I slept with her and I think that helped. Took a bit longer for my hubby to gain her trust.

(Mimi is Missy's nickname - she responds to both. Mimi is just easier/ quicker to say than Missy.)

Yes, she's still very shy. Everyone has to win her trust...except for other dogs and cats, all of whom instantly.

I had to hug a neighbor in order for young puppy Missy to accept. Big girl Missy still hides either behind me or between my legs when she meets a stranger on our walks. She does takes voice commands so well that she seldom needs to be leashed! But tell her to let a stranger pet her and it's "No, mom, I'm afraid."

MM, I think it's just Missy's innate personality, however being the runt of the litter may have had a bit to do with it. She's so sensitive and sweet, and the joy of our lives.

Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for fostering her and enabling her to share our lives. 🙏
