Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

I am sad because I was adopted but returned because I get afraid when I am alone, I heard someone say this is called separation anxiety. The young man that adopted me really tried to help me overcome this problem but we didn't succeed. I am a two year old Great Dane mix and just because I am a big girl everybody says I have nothing to be afraid of. I just am scared when you go to work you won't come home to me and I get nervous. I can't tolerate being crated so I think I need a stay at home mom or dad. Wouldn't that be fun just you and me together all day long. I am friendly with other dogs but have not lived with cats. Guess what, some really good things you should know is that I get along with kids and I am house trained. Please don't make fun of me because I get afraid, instead help me and give me a home with a stay at home parent, thanks! Hi! I am three months old and getting to be a big girl and big girls need to get adopted. I was a homeless stray and so happy to be safely cared for here at the shelter. You know when you are just a little baby kitten everything is scary, I mean really scary so a warm bed and regular meals is a wonderful thing. But I am brave now, I know people can be kind so I would like to have some people of my own, a family. It is the perfect time for me to move on, I need somewhere to go, I am thinking your house would be just fine. Don't forget I am Trixie and I am waiting...for you!
