Hi my name is Bonnie. My foster family calls me 'Bonbon', a nickname I learned is from a 17th century French dessert because I am very sweet and good. They say it sounds much better and fits me well.

When I was a puppy, this family took me home and gave me a new collar and a wooden box near a tree where I spent all day and all night. The summers were so hot and some days it was so cold at night. Sometimes they would put a blanket in my dog house. I was not allowed inside and my family could not afford medicine. I am scared of men who look like my dad because he would yell and hit me. I tried to be a good watch dog but I am not the mean dog they wanted me to be. When it was time for my family to move, they took me to the local shelter. The shelter told me I look like a rottweiler and they would call SSRR to help me from being euthanized. See I had really bad heartworms and did not know anything about what people do inside a house. The vet said I had heartworms for years and it was bad.

I have finished months of heartworm treatment which was really hard but my foster mom was always there for me. Hugging me, rubbing my tummy, and kissing my nose every time we had to go to the vet for medicine. The vet said I did very well and my heart looks good.

My foster mom says I am just like a Labrador and immediately called me Bonbon. I live with other dogs and teenage girls who have taught me all about living inside a house. I know how to sit, lay down, walk on a leash, come when called, play with a ball, and play gently with other dogs. In fact, I am very good with a leash because I had a leash on me for years, so I know all about not getting tangled or not to pull. I play well with kids, big and small dogs, cats, and guinea pigs. I am motivated by food and love to learn new things. I have two stuffed animals I sleep with and often carry them around. My mom says I am nothing like a Rottweiler and just like a Lab except for my fear of water. I was never taught how to swim but we are working on that. I'm not a big fan of rain. My favorite thing to do is relax with my foster family and take naps. One of my beds is by a huge window where I get to watch golfers all day long. My mom says I don't talk much, barking is not my thing. I would really like another dog so we could be mates. I know someday, I will find my forever family.

Can I please be apart of your family?
