found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
August 26, 2012: Hi, I'm Truffle. I was born sometime in 2005. I was a puppy mill breeder dog and had way too many litters over the last 6 1/2 years. I was not treated nicely. However, when my previous owner no longer wanted me, BDRA took me in and gave me a new life. I am now living in a house, with adults, cats and dogs. I am very sweet to everyone. I am just becoming comfortable with my surroundings. I love to walk in the yard, but do not like walking on other surfaces. Flooring is getting better. I am very quiet, I do not know any commands or how to do steps. But I'm told I will be learning steps once I feel comfortable with the flooring. I'm housebroken (I don't tell you when I have to go, but I'm on a schedule) and I'm crate trained. Generally, when out of my crate, I walk around in the kitchen and family room but don't really venture. This is all new to me.
I would do best in a home with a "mentor" dog or two, cats are okay, but I never had experience with children and not sure if that is a good idea. I am shy but will take treats and food from my human's hand. I do allow being picked up and being groomed. I am learning to sit with my human on a chair but I still shake because I'm scared. I generally am scared when I'm unsure of what is expected of me.
I really would love a furever home, but I need someone who will have lots of patience and who doesn't expect me to play fetch. Based on my background, I pretty much am a "couch potato", only you find me on the floor. Someday, I would love to be someone's "companion dog". Are you that person? If so, please fill out an application today!! I will be spayed and microchipped very shortly!
