We would love someone with Asian breed experience but we are also happy to work with a great potential home committed to her success.
Sutton was turned in to an overfull Texas shelter with a Boxer and 5 puppies. She didn't even have a name, her "owners" just said we are also turning in this brown dog, so thats what they called her, "brown dog." The shelter assumed that the pups belonged to the boxer but come to find out they didn't' know and when we pulled her it became clear that the pups belonged to her. Sutton spent her first night in her temp TX home searching for her pups. We were able to find bottle feeding pups but unfortunately her milk soon dried up. The pups went to one foster up here and Sutton to another. She will escape a yard if she's bored and has the opportunity. When we first got her she was food reactive but in the last few months that has lessoned as she learned she was safe.
We reccommed that she is kenneled if there are other dogs and you're not home or not paying attention (in the basement with dogs upstairs alone for a long period of time) because in her previous foster home where she was for months she had 2 scuffles with the mastiff. In the first incident there was food left on the counter, we have no idea what caused the 2nd because no one was paying attention. These are only 2 instances of this happening. After the 2nd instance, despite going over the need to kennel, Sutton was removed for her own safety.
She has been in her temp foster home for a LONG time, unfortunately, as she deserves so much more. Her current foster home crates and rotates so she doesn’t get all the attention and love that she deserves and craves. She is well behaved in her crate but will bark if other dogs are barking in their crates. She does fine meeting new people and dogs as long as both are appropriate and slow. She is not a dog who wants random people to immediately enter her space. She scares very easily still because she just cannot settle in to her current foster home. Due to this we are REALLY praying that we can find her a foster home or adoptive home where she can truly feel at home and 100% settle in.
Sutton is very much a Shar Pei personality and will bond quickly and incredibly deeply with her people. She will protect her family if she feels there is a legit risk and she is incredibly loyal. Shar Pei's are very emotional dogs and have "big feelings" so that's something to keep in mind. Sutton is a "lover" as reported by her previous foster family and is going to make some family incredibly lucky.
