Spayed or Neutered,
Cindy9 (ish)Fostered in Raleigh12 poundsShort list: Hilarious, housetrained, crate trained, not a fan of walks, great with cats, good with dogs, apartment friendly, working family friendly.
Cindy is absolutely convinced that every human on this earth was put here specifically to serve her needs, specifically rubbing her belly. Her foster mom calls her Cinderella, since this pup is positive that she is a princess.
And she’s not shy about letting you know that she is being neglected – well, in her mind anyway. First, she will tap you with her paw – whatever body part is nearest. If she’s on your lap or next to you, she will tap on your shoulder, just like a person – which is of course what she thinks she is. And then repeat till you pay attention. Yes, it’s as adorable as it sounds. And if that doesn’t work, then she will grunt at you. Or she might rollover to show her belly, just in case you weren’t clear on your assignment.
This gal has the best personality ever. She wants to be adored and will make you feel like the most important person in the word, which of course you are to her. If you are on the couch, she’s in your lap. But if she’s not getting attention, this girl is exploring, playing and running = she’s active and energetic. Somehow that energy and enthusiasm for life doesn’t carry over to walks. She knows how to walk on a leash but after about 300 feet, she decides that she doesn’t want to work up a sweet and simply stops and says “Nope, I’m good.” Nothing you can say or do changes her mind. Your only option is to carry your wiener home, which always makes for lots of laughs from passerby. Maybe that will change, but if you are looking for a walking buddy, Cindy isn’t your gal.
When we say she gets along with everyone, we aren’t exaggerating. She’s great with dogs and cats. She’s crate trained and housetrained. Yes, she’s pretty much perfect. Got kids? Her whole body lights up when she sees children. And her favorite person is the 9-year-old in the foster home – she even waits at the door when it’s time for her kid to come home from school. She would do great in a home with kids over 6.
Cindy is UTD, spayed, had a dental, is HW negative and microchipped. When Cindy came to us, she had numerous mammary tumors from not being spayed at an appropriate age. We had them surgically removed and they were benign. Her new family will need to drive to Raleigh to adopt. We prefer to adopt to families within a 4-hour drive of Central NC (Charleston/Savannah and DC area are fine). To get the process started of adopting this gal, fill out the adoption form at www.doxiebyproxy.org/application.
We promise you that you will start laughing and smiling within minutes of meeting Cindy. She is simply hilarious. And we promise that she will make you feel like a prince or princess when you are with her as well – because in her eyes, her person is royalty.
