The ideal situation for Tina would be an all female adult household---with few visitors---people with patience and experience dealing with dogs who have had limited social experiences.
Tina bonds quickly with women. She gets along with other dogs. We do not have cats here, so do not know how she does with cats---but did react poorly to one when she was in a home overnight with a cat who obviously hated her.
Tina is crate trained. She has not had any accidents in the house. She does, however, need help in choosing chew toys (instead of rugs!!!)
This little girl loves to play. She wants to please, and is learning basic obedience.
Tina is up to date on shots, spayed, and was treated for heartworm. It was decided to get her XRay'd to check her hips, and beginning arthritis was found. Down the road, Tina will need pain meds for this. Eventually, corrective surgery (femur ball removal) may be indicated. It does not affect her now, and her exercise does not need moderation. She is taking joint supplements (such as glucosamine) mixed in with her food.
An application form must be completed. There will be a home and vet reference check. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to meet this sweet girl. An application must be completed prior to meeting her.
PLEASE REQUEST AN APPLICATION FORM BY EMAILING FLYPIPER@JUNO.COM
