Holly in Little Rock, AR

My name is Holly. I’m a very energetic Blenheim Cavalier girl who loves to have my nose in everything. When I came into Rescue, I was super scared of every single noise in the house. I jumped at every movement and every unknown. After being with my foster family for a couple of days, I started to realize my foster home was a safe place with people here to love me and take care of me, not to harm me. I’m still afraid of the cats in my foster home, so I bark anytime they come near. As long as they keep to themselves I’m fine.

I have a foster sister who came with me and I love her as long as she doesn’t sneak up behind me while I’m eating. Then I get a little nervous. I like to go in the backyard with her and see what animals we can chase out of the yard. We chased a bunny out once. That was fun! I love to be outside. It’s my favorite thing so I hope my new furever family has a great backyard for me to run and play and burn off some energy. I’m really scared of a leash. My foster mom is taking baby steps to get me acclimated to one. She successfully got a harness on me, so I guess you know what the next step is. I hope she can get me used to one because I love being outside so much, I know a walk would be super fun.

I love food! Even if it’s yours and not mine. My foster family is working on teaching me to be respectful of their meal time. But right now I have to go in the kennel while they have meals together. Especially if it’s barbecue or steak. Since I am protective of my own food it is a good idea for me to be fed in my kennel.

I am completely crate trained. I’ve never had an accident in my kennel since coming into Rescue or even in the house.

I am a very loving and outgoing, but super sweet girl. I just need someone to love me and teach me. I would do best in a home with someone who is home most of the time and loves to be outside as much as I do. Older kids would be best, as quick, unexpected movements tend to make me nervous and jumpy.
