My Story

Date into Rescue: 12/30/2020

Reason for being in rescue: Owner Surrender

Special Needs: Bonnie is a young dog. She will not be spayed prior to adoption. She will be adopted on a spay/neuter contract requiring you to spay her at your expense within the first 6 months. Bonnie does shed. BONNIE WILL NOT BE ADOPTED TO A HOME WITHOUT ANOTHER DOG IN IT.

What kind of home would be best for me: Bonnie is a young dog who had a tough start to life. She must have an experienced owner with another young, confident dog that Bonnie can learn from. BONNIE WILL NOT BE PLACED WITH A FIRST TIME DOG OWNER OR AS THE ONLY DOG. We do not recommend a home with cats for Bonnie. Bonnie needs an active home that can keep up with her energy and antics. 

What is my personality like: Can you say ears! Bonnie was surrendered by her owners when they realized that puppies are a lot of work and they didn't have time to devote as needed. Bonnie is as cute as a button. She has a personality as big as her ears. And a heart even bigger. But as cute as she can be, Bonnie is also full of mischief.

We suspect that Bonnie was not well socialized as a young puppy. As a result she has some behavioral quirks that require an experienced owner and another well mannered dog for her to learn from. Bonnie is extremely greedy with her food, water, personal space and bed. She is living in a foster home with a pack and doesn't like to share. This is not to imply that Bonnie needs to be the only dog. In fact it is quite the opposite. She needs another dog to show her manners and to consistently learn from and model behavior after. 

Bonnie has finally accepted crate training in her foster home. She is now working on leash training. Cats are a work in progress. She barks non-stop at them. When it isn't time to eat, drink or sleep, Bonnie really enjoys being with other young, active dogs. This cutie has so much love and life to share with an experienced rescuer!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Bonnie's owner estimated her at 5 months old. Given this we have given her a birth date as 7/15/20. 

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.

Potential Adopters

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.
