Hi! My name is Bianca and my foster mom says I’m super sweet and well behaved, and beautiful of course! I already know all kinds of commands, including sit, stay, ball, potty, lay down, walk, dog park, kennel, and treats! I do great at dog parks and I used to go to doggy day care regularly to be social and burn energy. I love to be challenged and I am a quick learner! I am housebroken. I will come right away when you call me whether or not you have treats. I also go in my kennel immediately and never make a peep!
I would love to have a home with other social dogs to play with, but no dogs would be ok so long as you’re willing to walk and play with me instead. I currently live in a home with two other dogs, an elderly Chihuahua and a hyper pitbull, and I love them both. I am really nice and gentle with little dogs and listen to them if they don’t want to play with me. My foster pitbull sister was so excited to meet me that I was a little afraid of her at first, but after a couple of days we became the best of friends and would play all day long if our foster parents didn’t have to go to work. Check out the videos showing how nicely I play! My foster family also has a crazy loud parrot who makes a lot of noise, but he also throws food so he’s ok I guess. I’m very respectful of his cage.
I was adopted once before when I was 4 months old and they were my family for two years. I really really loved them and they loved me. Unfortunately, the cats didn’t like me so much and my family had to make a difficult decision. There weren't any other dogs to play with so I just thought maybe the cats could be my friends instead. My previous family said the cats were too stressed and I was too playful and strong for my new baby sister. They decided I would do better in a home with other dogs to play with to burn off some energy. I wouldn’t mind living with cats or kids again and having a canine companion would be best.
Have I told you how much I love people? My foster mom says I’m the first dog she’s ever met who truly smiles. If you talk to me I’m just so happy that I smile and my eyes squint up as I wag my tail vigorously for you!
Playtime is for daytime and nighttime is for cuddles. I might be big compared with my foster brother, but I love to cuddle and I can curl myself into a tiny ball so that I will fit on your lap! I love to be to petted and cuddled and I REALLY love belly rubs! I love, love, love people!! I will follow loyally beside you wherever you go.
I LOVE toys! I love to play, and will gladly play with you. My foster mom has yet to find a toy I won’t play with! I will play fetch for as long as you will play with me and when you’re done I’ll just come sit by your side hoping for some love. One of my other favorite things are walks! I go right to the door and wait for you to put my leash on. I do get excited when I see a squirrel or bunny and want to chase after it, but I’m working really hard on listening when the people tell me not to.
I’m a very gentle soul so sometimes things startle me, like fireworks or loud noises, but I will trust you to keep me safe and recover quickly. I’m a little bit shy of new people when I first meet them, but as soon as I’m comfortable I’ll try to steal a kiss. It doesn’t take long!
I would love to lay by you on the couch (or sit quietly on my bed if you’d prefer), next to you in bed, give you kisses and follow you anywhere. Do you have room in your heart for a sweet, gentle lady like me?
