Beatrix is a gentle little lady who loves to cuddle on the couch. She is 17 lbs, and approximately 2 years old. We call her a Westiepoo (poodle mixed with a westie). That is just our best guess, however. She was picked up as a stray in Southern California, and no one came to claim her. After a long journey north, she entered foster care with MWH.
She is a very quiet dog. She is crate trained and potty trained, and she is your happiest car buddy, always ready for a trip. At home, she loves to hang out in her crate with the door open even if people are home. She is rarely "underfoot," but will happily come when called. She occasionally solicits play from the resident dog, so she may enjoy spending time with another dog who will play with her. She does not seem interested in dog toys, or possibly we just haven't found the right ones for her yet.
She is a cautious gal. She happily greets new people who come into the home, but usually with a low head, curved body, lip licking, and a low tail wag. She is very optimistic that everyone she meets will be nice, but you can just tell she is a little bit worried, too. She gets lots of praise and happy talk when meeting new people. She seems to really like that. She has a very gentle nature.
Beatrix walks nicely on leash, and she enjoys her romps around the neighborhood. She gets very excited when she sees squirrels, but it seems more playful than anything. She also enjoys free time in the back yard. And if you're grilling, she will stick around in case you need a cleanup crew. Ever helpful, that's Ms. Bea. Her energy level is moderate. She would love a couple of walks per day and time spent in a yard.
Beatrix would thrive in a quiet home with people who remind her that her world is kind and gentle, and her people are so happy to spend time with her. Having a playful dog in the home would probably help her adjust quickly as well.
