Dot needs a new home! This sweet and cuddly and extremely affectionate little pup is very quick to steal your heart once you meet her. She loves everyone she meets; every stranger is a potential new friend to be loved on.
She is also friendly with cats and with other dogs. She is in general a very good natured pup who just wants to be with people as much as she can.
She has a moderate energy level and loves her walks; she does pull some on the leash, but isn’t too bad, and could be great with a little more training. We were surprised to learn from the person who surrendered her that she hasn’t had any obedience training, because this girl already shows some nice manners. She is very smart and eager to learn and to please, and I think could be quite fun to train.
She is not resource possessive; she gives up her toys easily. She loves to be cuddled and have her tummy rubbed. We were also told she loves car rides. At her previous home, she was mostly house trained and crate trained. (However, any dog in a new and strange environment can forget her training and have a few accidents until a new routine is established.)
Dot is from an area that is known to have a lot of very mixed up mixed breeds, and was found as a stray with no known lineage. Your guess is as good as ours as to breeds! Who knows, maybe she has 5 or 6 or more breeds in her. She does look like she might have some terrier, like Jack Russell, in their somewhere.
She is only around 5-6 months old and currently 22 lbs, and will likely not exceed 30 lbs. full sized.
She will be spayed and up to date on her vaccines as a part of her adoption fee. She has also been wormed and treated with a topical flea/tick preventative.
If you are interested in adopting Dot, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in, no appointment necessary, during open hours: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to come in and play with or walk the doggies. They love the attention while they wait for their forever homes!
