I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Introducing Cadence! Cadence is a fluffy, scruffy, playful little Wire-Haired Terrier mix and is so cute and friendly! At only 6.5 lbs, this little firecracker can keep up with the big dogs. Her current bestie is Twilight (disclaimer: not a big dog), but Cadence is a couple months younger. Cadence was probably born in June 2016 and is the spunkiest little puppy you ever saw! Considering she is a terrier, this should be no surprise, but the little lady will sleep through the night (not even one little peep) when she is put in her crate in her bedroom.
Old, young, big, small, Cadence enjoys all human types and does not discriminate; whoever is willing to give this ball of energy attention, she will not say no! Twilight and her love running around and wrestling like there’s no tomorrow, but this gal also does great with big dogs, so long as they’re ok with her wanting to constantly play and jump all over their faces! She’s proven to be smart enough to take correction from them when she is being rude.
Once Cadence is full grown, she will probably be between 15-20 lbs. Being so young, she is still learning her potty training skills and can make mistakes- if she is playing a lot and drinking a ton of water, she forgets about where she is and tinkles wherever the urge hits. If Foster Mom is paying close attention and gets Cadence outside in time then she is good to go and potties where it is appropriate. So she doesn't pee just to tinkle all over the place, she really has to go when an accident happens...so really it’s Foster Mom’s fault, right?! ;) Cadence keeps her crate clean when foster mom is away from home and all through the night. She may cry a little bit at first if she thinks she’s missing out on any excitement, but once the house settles down, so does Cadence :)
Cadence hasn’t met any cats yet, but we imagine she’d be fine. Since she is so young, she may attempt to play and wrestle with them… but nothing with an ill intent. Even though she is a measly 6lbs, Cadence has the confidence of a lion - People, dogs, anyone! She is quick to run right up to them and start begging for attention. When picking her up, however, she tends to squirm with so much excitement and tries to jump at the first chance she gets, so she is working on getting comfortable while being held. Even before she is picked up, Cadence will stand up on her hide legs and her tail wags soooo hard that her whole body just shimmy's and shakes and she does the wiggle worm dance!! The Wiggle Worm dance can also be observed when she begs for dinner or a treat- this puppy is just infectiously happy!
Terriers are known for their high energy and Cadence is no different. All she wants to do is play, play, play. Whether it be other doggy friends, walks/runs, or toys to keep her stimulated. Thankfully, she does very well with chew toys and can settle down once occupied. Fetch is also a great way for her to let off some steam. If Cadence's friends lay down for a nap or with a good chew toy and she isn't ready to mellow out herself, her favorite game is to move Foster Mom's shoes around the house and hide them for her to find later. They’ve proven to be her weakness as she just can’t resist them! Thankfully, she doesn’t chew them up, only hoards them.
If you’re looking for an ambitious and affectionate little lady, Cadence is the one for you! Despite her age, she isn’t a nippy puppy and just loves life (and wants to tell you how much she loves it)! That’s right, this little lady loves to talk to her play mates! She isn't yappy all the time but she has soooo much excitement in her that when she plays, it comes out in little puppy barks! All she needs is a family who can continue her potty training and toss her some toys for a game of fetch. She’ll be happy as can be and we’re sure she’ll bring that same happiness to her new family!
