As cute as she looks, Miss Dory does have some requirements for her forever family:
1. She needs a physical fence.
2. Older children, if any.
3. No cats or small pets.
4. She will need slow introductions to other dogs. While she has done fine with the dogs she knows well, she can be wary of new ones she meets, owing to the fact that she spent her early life fending for herself and likely having scuffles with other street dogs.
5. She is a smart little girl and will need proper mental stimulation in addition to adequate physical exercise.
Overall, Dory is a sweet, loving, happy, playful dog. Please contact us if you meet the above requirements and have a comfy couch you'd like to share!
Dory is being fostered in the Twin Cities metro area, and her adoption fee is $600.
