Foster Comments: Prissy is the sweetest dog you can imagine.She only wants to be loved and feel safe.She spent some of her 3 years on her own wandering around the countryside in Oklahoma.She had a litter of puppies sometime during that time.She is frightened of thunderstorms, but you would be too if you had been own your own during thunderstorms in Oklahoma. But she doesn’t have anxiety attacks.She just wants a nice dark corner to lie in until it passes.She is not food aggressive but is concerned about crumbs left on the floor that someone else might want.Because of her insecurities, I think she would be better to be an only dog in the house.With love and affection, she will continue to build more self-confidence.
