She was named Matrix by the foster family, but Burdie was a better fit for a name. She was shy and scared, but from day 1 she knew were were her new family. My grandson Adrian who is 8 plays with her and she goes for walks everyday, and looks forward to them. I play fetch with her and she loves it. Burdie has gained about 7 lbs and is a very happy girl.She is very smart and we work on commands everyday. Burdie loves balls and sqeek toys, to we have a very large collection. Our house is now full of activity since she became part of our family. We are very happy she is part of our family.
