found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed and good with dogs.
4/20: 20.4 lb. Amazing what worming and good quality, regular food can do.
4/19: She's up to 19.8 lb. Still skinny.
4/15: Intake weight 18 lb
Bell's first 48 hours in foster: She is doing very well. As is typical for a puppy, she's somewhat active, likes toys, and can be a little mouthy so will need retraining on that. She slept quietly in her crate in our bedroom overnight her first night. She's a little bit timid at meeting new dogs but once she figures out they're nice, then she relaxes and has already started playing with several of the dogs here.
She's met our cat and been fine with him. Our cat came right out the first night to hang out with her and even encouraged her to visit his side of the house by going through the cat door. By the second day, she wanted to romp and play with the cat and he found that a bit overwhelming but is still willing to hang out with Bell. She has no desire to hurt, just to play.
Bell is definitely underweight (was treated for worms last week), but is also not highly interested in eating. She also doesn't seem to like kibble type dry food. We are feeding her The Honest Kitchen dog food (which is a dehydrated mix of real foods that you rehydrate with warm water). She's getting her meals in a crate to give her more time to focus on her own food as she is easily distracted by wondering what the other dogs are getting. We are also feeding her extra treats (home made dog biscuits) between meals to help her gain weight.
She likes men and women. She likes to play and is well versed in the purpose of toys. She's a great dog, just needs a little training on mouthiness and housebreaking. She's crate trained and will go out to potty if the door is open, but doesn't yet know how to tell you that she needs to go out when the door is closed, so may have accidents until you get her on a regular schedule.
Because she has young dog energy, Bell will need regular exercise, so we're wanting an outdoorsy type family and/or a fenced yard and possibly another playful dog in her adoptive home. She LOVES to play with other dogs.
She's a mixed breed terrier with a soft coat that is not too thinck, so we're tossing around these as possible breeds in her mix: Wheaten Terrier (30-40 lb) / Schnauzer (30 lb) / Skye Terrier (25-30 lb) / Tibetan Terrier (18-30 lb). She has a very interesting and unique coloring to her coat. It's chocolate brown, then cream, and the tips are almost strawberry blonde.
On her current body frame at about 6 months old, we think Bell should weigh closer to 22-24 lb. She came to us weighing 18 lb. Bell has been spayed, vaccinated, 4DX tested negative, fecal tested positive and subsequently treated for worms/parasites. Please submit an application if you'd like to meet her. Any children in the home must be age 10 and up. She will be ready to meet adopters by 4/22.
