HISTORY: Trixie came from animal control. She arrived as a stray very underweight and missing large patches of hair. It is obvious she has had multiple litters of puppies. While she was at animal control she became very sick and had to spent a month in boarding at a vet until she was well enough to go to her foster home.
ABOUT: Trixie is up to a much better weight and her hair is growing in very quickly showing us her beautiful brindle coat. Trixie’s foster family decided that they wanted her to have some freedom after being kenneled for so long so they decided to take a risk and not crate her. She has proven herself trustworthy. She is contained to one room of the house, but has never destroyed anything. She also has not had any accidents save one she had when her tummy wasn’t feeling in tip-top shape. Trixie is also agreeable to having a bath even though it isn’t her favorite activity. She will bark if something especially exciting happens outside, but overall she’s pretty quiet.
Her foster home immediately offered her toys to play with, but it was quickly evident that she had no idea what to do with them. She was in her foster home for weeks before she finally figured out what they were for. Her foster mom was elated the first time she really got the hang of it and had fun with her toys. Trixie loves everyone she meets and is very affection-motivated. She loves cuddles and snuggles and belly rubs. Trixie was accidentally introduced to the two resident dogs under less-than-ideal circumstances. The foster home isn’t comfortable trying to do an introduction now, so she is being kept separated from the other two dogs. We do feel that she would get along with other dogs with a slow, proper introduction. She is handling being separated very well. She is not hyper, but she loves to trot around the fenced yard at the foster home and then come back to sit next to her foster mom. She currently sleeps in her dog bed with a fleece blanket to cuddle in. She does love to sit on the couch with her foster mom when she gets some private snuggle time.
This sweet, people-pleaser is ready to be adopted as a pet, not a cash-cow. She’ll repay you the only way she knows how. With love.
