Joanie lived her life in a barn as a backyard hoarders breeding dog. She arrived with a large umbilical hernia, very very long nails, and a mouth full of rotten teeth. She was immediately sweet, loving and wanting to be held and loved on. She loves giving kisses, and is so food motivate she may end up in your dinner plate helping herself. She is working on house training, keeps a clean crate, and uses a potty pad currently. Joanie would love a quiet home, with or without another small doggy friend. She would make a great lap dog for a single older person or couple. Joanie is fine being home all day alone, she will just sleep curled up and eat a snack or two. She is good with dogs and cats, is fine with humans of all sorts but because of her size and being a little skittish she would do best with school aged calm children and older, or no children at all. She is not aggressive, she doesn't bite or nip. She is just sweetness! Would you like to add this purebred baby to your family? www.arrowdogrescue.org/application is the first step. Your dogs must be current on shots, hw and flea preventative year round, and be spayed/neutered unless you have a veterinarian able to verify that there is a medical reason to not do these things. Your dogs also must be indoor pets. We require references, a home check, and for you to come to pick up your pet in Normal IL. Her adoption fee is $275 and she has had a complete dental, grooming, nails, all vaccines, spayed, umbilical hernia repair, heart worm and fecal tested, microchipped, and flea/heartworm preventative applied monthly.
