Dot is a small dog, and although still a puppy, isn’t expected to grow much more (other than fill out a little). Despite her small size she is adventuresome, and very confident and comfortable around people and dogs once she has gotten to know them.
She is very agile, and will use ramp to couch, and bed, also has no problem going up and down stairs.
Housebreaking is a work in progress, although she does understand that potty is meant for outside…sometimes she just can’t wait for her human.
She walks OK with leash and harness provided she sets the pace and direction. Further work will be needed to understand walking under her humans direction.
She loves her toys and playing with her doggy buddies in her foster home. She is generally good about not chewing on things she shouldn’t.
She sleeps well through night, starts in her pen, and then will be taken out around midnight for potty break and joins her foster parent in bed with the other dogs.
Her biggest struggle is separation anxiety. She has shown some improvement in this area, and will require continued work.
Please note that we are aware that there will be many applications for Dot. Please ensure that your application is detailed as this is how the applicant will be chosen to determine if they will be considered for Dot’s furever home placement. Only potentially successful applicant(s) will be contacted. You will know that your application has been received when you receive an automated response.
While we realize there will likely be many potential good fits for Dot, we only have one Dot, and therefore only one home can be selected. Please be respectful of our volunteers if your home isn’t chosen, and please look at our many other amazing dogs we have in our care needing a home.
You can purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her, or any of our other foster dogs.
Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
