Tina is lap possessive and will growl at some strangers when they approach while her person is holding her. Her foster mom is working at training her on these issues, but we feel Tina would benefit greatly from being an only dog and may do well with another very gentle-natured dog. She does enjoy canine companionship but is selective. Tina just loves her foster sister, Goldie and romps with her, but is growly with others. (She is not lap possessive with the dogs she likes.) With Tina’s petite size she needs an adult only/mature older child home and would do very well with a retired or work-at-home family who has snuggle time to share.
Tina loves to go with her people too. She gets very excited when she sees the harness come out so her wish is a family that will take her along when going on outings and adventures. Tina is very vocal when she is when she is happy as well as when she is distressed but otherwise quiet. She is a good guard dog who will alert you to outsiders but otherwise not a big barker. She is an adorable and fun girl.
Tina walks like a crab with her bowed back legs. This is from being born with a severe lusting patella. This does not stop this sweet girl from twirling and dancing for her favorite people! She dances when it is time to eat, time to go somewhere or just whenever her favorite person walks in the door. Tina will be a very loyal and adoring companion.
Tina will need a home where she can sleep with her favorite person. Tina has been spayed, microchipped and is current on vaccinations. Tina's previous owner said she was not at all potty trained, but she is already potty pad trained. She is a very smart girl and has learned from the others. She is also doing very well with outside training.
