Special Needs: Special girl that she is, Doodlebug has already proved to be a survivor. At just a few weeks ago, she survived parvovirus. Then as she was recovering, she came down with double pneumonia. Again our warrior princess fought back against the disease trying to take her out and she won.
What kind of home would be best for me: Doodlebug has been through a whole lot of life for a girl who isn't even a year old. She needs a home that will provide her with first and foremost - stability. No more bouncing around! She needs love and attention, training and direction for that has been very much absent in her first 10 months. She is eager and ready to please and only needs a bit of a nudge in the right direction to get to where she needs to be as your perfect companion and best girl.
What is my personality like: This girl is truly all puppy. She is scared of new things and needs someone to teach her that everything is okay. She gets along well with other dogs. She does pull on a leash since she has not been taught how to properly walk on a leash. She needs socialization with other dogs and new things. She requires a fence and plenty of running roomm. She does get sick on very long car rides. She would be happy with a new buddy in her home or be happy with you and lots of time. Whatever, she needs and wants stability.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: We believe her birthdate is 12/10/2020. Doodlebug, after surviving parvo and double pneumonia, found herself homeless at only a few months old when her owner was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and passed away. Two family members tried to keep Doodlebug but their lives did not support caring for a young, large and vivacious girl who needed exercise and proper teaching to be her best girl ever. Doodlebug has lived around small children and did fine with them. Doodlebug has also lived around cats and did fine with them but we recommend retesting now that she is older, healthy and more active.
Doodlebug has been known to get carsick - please remind your matchmaker and we'll give her a dramamine for the ride home.
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.
