You will not believe that this sweet girl is nine months old! She has been in foster care her entire life. Her three brothers and sisters are now living and loving homes, but this girl is still waiting for her chance. Her foster parents say, people do not know what they are missing with this little lady. She is very quiet, and will sleep much of the day.
Although she loves having foster puppies around to play with and running with the two and four-year-old boys in her foster family. She is gentle and loving and loves a comfy bed, and better yet, a snuggle buddy. She does doggy daycare and does great with other dogs and currently lives with four cats. She prefers to be carried rather than walking on a leash. Her foster family is working with her, but leash training is definitely something she will need. She spent the first several months of her life outside, and has only been with her new family about six weeks. She was afraid to come inside for a while, and was very skittish. She is now very comfortable around people, but still seems unsure of doorways.
We think she may have a slight vision problem. This is not really something that is easily tested and it is not something that will impact her quality of life or health, but is something to be aware of as she is getting familiar with new surroundings. Basil has been patiently waiting but she is now ready, more than ever for her new home! Could you be the family worth waiting for?
