Bindi

Hi I’m Bindi I’m a special little girl who is in need of a forever home. I had a very rough start to my life I was a stray who has obviously had some not nice people in my life who must have mistreated me. I need a special home who will understand this and help me to overcome some of my fears. I seem to really like men more than women at least in my current home. I am very scared of any new people so it takes me time to not retreat to my crate when they come in the house. I am terrified of children anyone under 15 or 16 really scares me. I love other dogs and I will require another dog in my home to help me know that things are okay and help me to trust. My crate is my safe zone so I need to have access to it. I am a tripod due to an older injury but it doesn’t phase me in the least i run around just like all the other dogs in my home. I am a sweet girl who really needs just the right home that will be patient and understanding about my past.
