Sweet-natured and sincere as they come, Whitney is an extremely affectionate and faithfully loyal dog who will form very deep bonds with her family members. Friendly and sociable, warm-hearted, and mild-mannered, Whitney is, above all else, a people-oriented dog who welcomes any opportunity to share affection. Craving companionship and close contact, she loves to give kisses and cuddle with her people, and she’s looking to be included in daily activities with family members who are as devoted to her as she will surely be to them.
Animated, lively, inquisitive, and interested, Whitney needs regular physical and mental activity to stay happy and healthy. Her exercise needs are not all that extreme though and can be met with regular leashed walks, interactive play sessions, and outdoor exploration and adventure-seeking with “her people” and on her own in a safe, secure yard. Intelligent with a high learning ability, but sometimes having an overly-enthusiastic puppy-like mindset that requires patient guidance, this sensitive girl needs some confidence boosting, and she is looking for responsible, caring owners who are worthy of her trust and want to provide her with the leadership and companionship she needs and deserves.
Currently working on her leash skills and good manners training with Monroe SPCA, it is clear that Whitney has had little previous or positive leash experience. We are working on boosting her confidence with praise for accomplishment (which she responds well too) and some leash counter-conditioning (this too she is responding well too). Whitney will benefit from training and socialization classes (which will be sponsored by Monroe SPCA through Dundee K9 with foster or adoption placement); this will also be an excellent way to establish a trust bond as well as reinforce good canine manners.
A devoted and completely well-intentioned canine who learns quickly and is eager to please when she knows what is expected of her, this darling little girl needs in her life someone looking to take on a worthy labor of love which will require structure, time, attention, and plenty of TLC more than anything else.
Whitney is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. While we think she will get along well with compatible, similar-sized dogs she has been properly introduced to, particularly those of the opposite-sex, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to foster placement or adoption.
Whitney is a Monroe SPCA adoptable dog who currently resides at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Come meet her during kennel hours Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm, closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
All Monroe SPCA dogs available for adoption at the shelter have an adoption fee of $120.00. This fee includes the dog being spayed or neutered, HW negative, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption.
