Mom rescued me when I was 11 weeks old. My littermates and I had been abandoned at a truck stop and a nice trucker took us to a rescue. When mom adopted me I was the shyest most scared doggie you ever saw. My littermates were not shy at all, but luckilymom fell in love with me. She was afraid that another family may not be able to deal with me and my neurotic issues so she took me. I am happy to say that with the help of mom and my brother Yoshi, I have come a long way. I am still nervous about strangers (both people and new situations), but I no longer pee on the floor when I am scared. Mom and I have done lots of obedience training, and I can walk around with her in public without freaking out. At home I really like to cuddle on the sofa or watch out the window for intruders (I learned that from Yoshi). My nicknames are Mieko-sama (my sanurai name), Mieko Suave (cause I'm alover), and Little Wolf Wolf (cause I like to think I'm a big ole wolf until a stranger enters the picture).
