Sweet, well-mannered gal looking for loving family, loads of attention and permanent home!
Our Dottie girl was rescued from a shelter after her family surrendered her there. Dottie is very well mannered, walks wonderfully on a leash, and just has a very sweet, mild temperament about her. She enjoys romping around the yard or snuggling on the couch.
While Dottie was initially very uncomfortable with other dogs we have done a lot of work with her and now she enjoys and plays with the other dogs in her foster home. She would be a good companion for a dog-friendly dog who needs a fun buddy or she could be an only dog who gets all the love and attention.
Dottie is a dog who gets a little nervous in new environments and situations so she needs encouragement and patience to help boost her confidence. She is often overlooked at adoption events because of this but if you could see how fun-loving and confident this girl is at home, you'd think she was a completely different dog!
Dottie has met calm, respectful children at adoption events and did well with them. We will not place her in a home with young children, however, because of her nervous temperament.
This girl is truly an amazing dog and a favorite of our volunteers. If you're looking for a calm, well mannered, super sweet girl then Dottie is a super good catch!
