Description: Dotty is mostly white with some dots (hence her name) on her snout and ears. She has a shiny, short coat and sheds very little.
Personality: Dotty is a great combination of silly playmate and total snuggle bug. She is incredibly sweet and loves to race through the yard or throw her toys around - but as soon as you settle on the couch, she'll be right there with you. She gives gentle kisses and is eager to please in order to earn a tasty treat. Dotty is easy to have around the house. She is housebroken, crate-trained, and can entertain herself at home. She walks nicely on a leash and knows basic commands. She would be happy as an only dog or with a doggy sibling. Dotty would love a house where she is allowed on the furniture to maximize her snuggling time. Unfazed by rambunctious little ones, Dotty would be a great family dog for both small and older children. She loves being around people and will soak up love wherever she can get it.
Animal History: Dotty was rescued from a rural shelter by an IAR foster, who discovered a few weeks later that she was pregnant! Dotty gave birth in July 2016 in that foster's home.
