Additional info: Dahlia was a little shy and skittish at first especially with men but she has now completely settled down. She is gentle, with a calm energy. She does not pull on the leash. We recommend her for a home with other confident dogs so she can model their behavior and learn. She is currently sharing her foster home with another dog and she is getting along fine. She was an escape artist and a door darter when she first came to rescue but she has settled down so much she will stay quietly and happily around her person if the door is opened. She also had separation anxiety at first and that's much better but she doesn't like being left alone and seems to be stressed when her person returns. She can climb fences and baby gates and push screens out of windows so she needs watching for the first few days in any environment to give her a chance to settle down and become comfortable. After that, her sweet relaxed personality will come out and she will be a very content homebody.

Our adoption fees are $300 for adult dogs, and $350 for puppies 3-6 months, and $400 for puppies 2-3 months. All dogs are spayed/ neutered, vaccinated and mirco-chipped prior to adoption. We also give new owners an ID tag.
