MONET AND EMMA WANT TO STAY TOGETHER!

MEET MONET…whose name was Eun-hye (pronounced “Oon-Hay”), which means “grace” in Korean.  She answers to it!  Monet was the closest to that name for this sweetheart of a 6 yr old, 11 lb, white, Lhasa Maltese — and she is responding.  The former owners thought she was pure Lhasa, but we don’t think so.  She was given up because the owner fell sick and had to leave the country and isn’t expected to return.  Poor baby was left in a home with nobody there — only friends to check on her, feed her and take her out once in awhile :((  She came to us quite shutdown, but now, she has come around, thanks to her friend, Emma!  Monet is initially shy, but when she blossoms….look out!  She is so pretty, well behaved, does her business on PP pads — and she has become so affectionate in just a short time.  More wary of men at first.  We have only had her a short time and the flood gates have opened!  Kisses…and so many more kisses!  When she arrived, she didn’t give any.  We think she was taught not to.  But now?  OMGosh, be prepared for a face cleaning and if you don’t like kisses, you won’t like her!  When Monet is on a walk, she is protective and often barks at an oncoming dogs or people…but she does not go berserk.  She is partial to women, but we believe that will change. She is quiet for the most part but will join in the chorus if there are other dogs barking because she thinks that is what she is supposed to do!  We can tell you she is good with other dogs, kids and humans…she just needs time to adjust.  Poor little lady has been thru a lot and really needed to get her bearings!  We want her to go to a home where there is someone around most of the time, another dog for company (she’s had enough “alone” time!) and a family that will adore her with patience.  Could that be you?
