Bambi's fosterer writes...
Bambi originally came into the local shelter as a stray. They suspect that she was hit by a car when running loose as she came in with a broken pelvis. However, after a few weeks of crate rest, everything has healed up well and she is ready to run and play with her new family.
She is friendly but a bit tentative with new friends. She ignores the cat at her foster home and her best buddy at present is a mixed poodle that is close to her size. She would probably be a good pet for older kids - she's active and might bowl over small children.
A single family house with fenced yard is a necessity as she will sometimes protest bark when crated and you first leave (although she can be distracted with a milkbone or chew treat). Otherwise, she does well in a crate when alone and at night.
Obedience training is suggested (she knows sit, but is not good at come or other basics). House training is good but watch for hints of need. She does not have any chewing problems and can be quiet when indoors.
Could you be her new family?

If you are interested in Bambi, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).
Bambi is expected to attend the next adoption show on July 22nd at the Bowie PetSmart, although there is always a chance that plans may need to change at the last minute.
We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our
animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside
