My ideal home would be: Somewhere with nice people to give me all the love I didn't get during my time in the puppy mill. I would like to lose a few pounds, so if you are active and like to take me for walks, that would be great. I may seem shy at first, but once I feel comfortable, I warm right up and rule the roost! I am really good at going outside to pee and poop, considering I came from a mill, and I am really well behaved, although I sometimes like to chew things I shouldn't. If you give me a crate with a nice soft bed, I will be very happy and wiggle my butt with joy every time you come into the room. Here is my foster mom to tell you some more about me:
Beauty is a darling little girl who obviously had many litters of puppies during her time at the Amish mill. She came to us pretty frightened, and for her first week she sought comfort by staying in a crate for most of the day. She has two pretty active and loud foster brothers (6 year old BBR alum Boston and Fez, an 8 month old Anatolian Shephard mix.) Our first interactions went OK, but a couple of times, fear caused Beauty to lash out at the very sweet and patient Fez. After about a week of monitored access, we noticed a change, and now they are living together quite well, even playing occasionally.
UPDATE: Beauty has now relaxed completely, and pretty much rules the roost- running around and playing with the other dogs like a champ and being generally adorable. I still stress- SLOW intro ONLY.
Beauty is a gorgeous girl, but she is a bit of a porker, and we were told to monitor her food intake, so she worried us a bit at first because she wouldn't eat much at all. We tried feeding her in the crate, which seemed to help, but now that she is relaxing she is coming out of her shell and eating normally down in the kitchen with the other dogs.
Beauty has had few accidents in the house, which is unusual for a mill dog, and she will walk on a leash with a bit of patience and coaxing, although she can be VERY stubborn when she decides she is not in the mood for a walk. She gets along with other dogs when we go out for walks, and she is sweet with kids, she seems to like all people in general, and once she got settled in with us, she does not seem fearful at all.
Although she had palette surgery, Beauty still has some breathing issues, so we have to be careful that she doesn't get overheated- but on days that aren't too hot, she loves to lay out in the yard in a nice shady spot.
Overall, Beauty is a sweet little girl who charms everyone she meets, and she will make a wonderful companion in a home where she can get all the love and attention she deserves.
