Dottie is a sweet little girl that was brought into a shelter as a stray. She was very scared there and hid in the back of her cage. Dottie needs someone who can be patient and help her come out of her shell. In her foster home she has decided that her foster mom is worthy of a million kisses and even thinks her foster dad is kinda okay (she has been scared of some men though). She loves to snuggle on the sofa and is a calm and quiet girl. But she can still be scared when approached from above and needs an understanding owner that will go slowly. Because of her shyness she does not need a home with children.
Dottie likes playing with toys when she feels comfortable in her home and she gets along with the other small dogs but hasn't really been interested in playing with them. She is happy to hang out with them but can be a bit jealous if they try to share her foster mom's lap. She walks very well on a leash and would be happy if her new parents take her on walks. She also enjoys a fenced back yard but it isn't a requirement. She has done very well on her house training but may have an accident if she isn't taken out on a consistent schedule. Dottie sleeps quietly in her crate at night but would be happy to be in bed. She also enjoys her crate during the day as a safe space if she is nervous.
Dottie is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. She is ready to find her forever home today. Please fill out an application if that may be you 💗
