Update: Doll continues to do well following her left TPLO. She's becoming much more energetic as she's feeling better, and learning leash manners on her daily walks. She loves doing her home exercises (she loves anything involving snacks, really!) and does very well at her rehab appointments. Otherwise she's just very happily lounging on the couch, waiting for the perfect family to adopt her!! She's not asking for much: a comfy couch, walks, and a family that will be consistent with her training and recovery.
Update: Doll is now two weeks post op from her second knee surgery, and is doing well!
Update: Right now Doll is just laying low....she's very restricted because of her TPLO surgery. She's loving all the extra belly rubs and one-on-one attention she's receiving. She also really loves her new Kong Wobbler! Doll is great with confident cats and seems to like other dogs but is not allowed to play right now. She loves snacks and is very food motivated, so she's learning lots of new things in her foster home! She would love a forever home with a comfy couch, daily belly rubs and someone to continue training her! She will be available once she gets the green light from the doctor.
Update: Doll had her left TPLO last week and is recovering well. She's on oral medications, is taking them well and is using her leg already. She continues to get along with the resident cat and can't wait to meet her forever family. She is a such a sweetie!
Update: Did someone say "car ride?!" This 3-4 year old cutie loves to ride, and will patiently wait to get in! She's house and crate trained, and would do fine with a confident cat in the house. She also seems to like other dogs too.
Update: Doll is a great dog! She has excellent house manners. She loves her crate and will spends time in it with the door open. She'll even take toys in there or treats. She has recently discovered that the couch is a very comfortable place to relax! She is getting along great with the resident cat in her foster home. She plays with toys on occasion but since she is on exercise restriction, her activities have been limited. She knows a lot of tricks, is eager to learn, is very food motivated and has been working on her leash manners. She's very sweet, and of course adorable! Doll has been recovering from her recent knee surgery and is due to have her left knee repaired in a few weeks. This will require ongoing rehab.
Update: Doll is such a sweetheart. She absolutely loves car rides! She has excellent house manners, and likes to spend time resting in her kennel even when the family is home. She's very intelligent, learning new things all the time-she currently working on how to be a good girl on her leash! She has discovered the couch...and is taking full advantage of it!!
Update: Doll has had a rough start--she is currently recovering from surgery on her right knee, and will have surgery on her left knee in a few weeks. She loves attention and belly rubs, and is learning to play with squeaky toys. She does great in her crate, and is very smart-she's learning new things everyday!
Update: Doll is quickly living up to her name! She's making herself right at home. She doesn't mind the resident cat, and loves all the neighbors she's met. She's enjoying her new squeaky toys and soaking up all of the attention of having a family around! See the video of Doll playing with her toy:
