What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away. Owner Experience 4: Experienced dog owner. This is your second or third dog. No experience with behavior or medical issues other than routine end of life issues.
What is my personality like: Precious was an owner release to a KY shelter because of her owner's poor health. We do not know what her past entails, but we do know she desperately needs someone that can understand her. Precious is not for anyone looking for an "easy" dog to join their family. She needs a special person willing to help a project dog. Just one look at her and you can see the fear in her eyes and her troubled personality. Precious isn't a vicious dog, she doesn't want to hurt anyone.. she just feels the need to protect herself. She is a sweet girl when she trust you and she will constantly look to you for protection but her heart and trusts must be earned. Precious has a potential to be someone's sweet and loyal dog if they are only willing to help her.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Skittish
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
