According to her foster mom, China is an extremely easy dog who is the ultimate people pleaser. She is curious about the world around her and loves exploring and meeting people and other animals. She loves to go to the park and hike, or the indoor park to play with the dogs. She has a jacket that she loves to wear when it’s chilly out. This is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. She will just sit and look up with you with her wide, innocent quintessential “puppy dog” eyes and melt your heart. She loves to learn and do what you’re asking of her. If you spend the time to train her and work with her she will be an absolutely perfect dog for you. This little girl has had a rough beginning to life, but she hasn’t let it dampen her spirits or her love of everyone.
China is housebroken, crate trained, and walks nicely on leash. She loves everyone she meets and is good with strangers, kids, other dogs, and cats. China has some medical issues, namely a skin condition that is of undefined origin. She is missing large patches of her fur and the skin has turned black. We are treating it and some of the skin is turning pink again, but we don’t know if the fur will return. She gets weekly baths with medicated shampoo and then we apply a cream (with odor) to all the spots. She loves it because it keeps her skin from drying out and getting flaky and itchy.
The perfect forever family for China is one that has the ability to continue her care. Children school age and older just because her tail can be a weapon when she gets overexcited!
