I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This little girl is a total lap dog. Although she loves to play and even knows how to fetch and retrieve, she is happiest when she is sitting on someone's lap. She bonds quickly and loves everyone. She is an adorable dog with a beautiful soft coat. Monkey is approximately a year old and weighs just under 12 lbs.
Here is what her foster family had to say:
Monkey, is a very easy going, loving dog. She gets along with anybody who lets her sit in their lap. Monkey LOVES to cuddle and because she's so small, you almost forget about her sleeping on you. If you currently have your lap occupied, she will gladly curl up right beside you. Although it's taking her a while to get out of her shell, she's starting to follow me around and wagging her tail whenever I look at her pretty face.
She is very interested in meeting people, while walking she tries to sniff them as they walk by. When they turn to gently pet her she will shy away behind me.. then slowly comes out to say "hello". She is great with other pets including dogs and is currently living with a cat who she ignores. She would be fine around children of any age but would do best with children 6 and over that could actually play with her.
We use a crate, and she doesn't like it much at first, but she's understanding that she goes there at night to sleep. She will whine a little if you are in the home but overall she settles easily and sleeps through the night. She doesn't appear to know any basic commands but she is so bonded that she is just where she should be, doing whatever she should be. She takes direction very well. We are working on teaching her basic commands like "sit". She is fully house trained as long as you get her out first thing in the morning and a few times during the day. She is clean in her crate, sleeping through the night with no problem. She is very quiet in the home, only barking when there is a good reason. She is currently living in an apartment and would be fine with that as long as she got a couple walks each day to explore and meet new friends. She is pretty good on the leash, sometimes pulling, but usually 90% of the time walking at your side. She likes to try to follow me. But a simple "stay" or even a glare, lets her know to stay there and that I'll be right back.
I believe Monkey would be best placed in a home with a few people in it. She likes to play fetch and loves to go on walks. She knows that when we're walking, that's when she does her business. She follows mostly at your side. If there's another dog in the house, she'll play nicely. She's a young girl that loves to play. She just needs a little training.
If you think Monkey would be a good fit for your family, please submit an application for consideration.
