Dovey was wary and lacked confidence at first. With determination and patience, that barrier was broken and she is now very self-confident but needy of her humans and lots of TLC. She is so adorable with her front paws which she often uses to express herself; she loves to hi-five!
Dovey found a loving home with a retired couple for 3 yrs; but unfortunately one owner passed and the other moved into a nursing home, so once again, Dovey is back under our care.
Dovey would be happiest in a home with a retired couple who would be with her most of the time as she doesn't like to be left alone. She could possibly enjoy the company of an older male dog. She is crate, leash, and housetrained. She does not like small children, as they make her nervous. Could your family be the right fit for Dovey?
***IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ- Due to the nature of our adoption process, our fosters are only able to consider forever families within a reasonable driving distance of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
