I keep calling her by both names and she'll let me know what her name is just like the rest of them did.
Well, I'm glad that she finally ended up with someone who can deal with the fact that she is a dog.

Amazing how many "issues" quickly resolve themselves when a little patience, love and kindness is administered in high doses

Glad it is workings out, she sort of looks like Luna.Luna has nasal cancer and I met her mom on that thread, they live in Italy and Luna had palliative radiation and is doing very well her mom puts videos of her in facebook and she is so cute and sweet and I love the ears ( both Luna's and your pups!)

I know you will be very happy with her and that she is in the right home now!

Annabelle perhaps? She seems a very delicate dog.

She told me her name is Possum.

She looks like a delicate Anna in this picture.......





But a complete Possum in this one......




She almost looks like two different dogs, but the second photo really shows her true personality which is way more confident and more Possum (it's those fuzzy ears inside). She's a keeper. Yesterday, her and my other dog were in the back yard doing the puppy crouch and chasing each other around the yard and trees (boy can that dog run like a greyhound) and they were rolling around on the floor with each other. I now find plush dog toys on the bed and with that, me and the dogs it's like Dances with Wolves in here....but it's GREAT!! The whole house is just filled with love and happiness and to think this sweeheart was on death row.

Thanks everyone for all the info because it really helped me to bond with her quickly knowing all these things. She was under the guidance of a really good trainer who stopped over and showed me some great things which will be a benefit to both dogs. Even after fostering for years there is always something new to learn.

I was out front weeding the yard and the leash hand holder was around my leg and she was just following me and sitting there watching people and other dogs walk by and just sat there content and didn't budge. The little girl from across the street came over to see her and (with no treats) she looked at Possum and said, "Shake." And darned if that dog didn't raise her paw and put it in her hand. It just made me smile like sunshine inside.

That gave me goosebumps. What a Possum!

She is so cute, I'm glad you have her, I used to have a Heeler/BC cross, smartest dog I ever had and protective.

I'm wondering if she will lay her paw on your foot when you sit down.
