Meet this scruffy little flower of a pup, named Thistle. She's just had a birthday and is now 7 years old. She weighs about 10 pounds but don't let her age or size fool you, she is no wallflower! She is more wild flower! She is an active girl who can easily hike 10 miles. She loves to GO! She is a true terrier and has a prey drive so her walks and hikes must be on leash. She also needs a secure fenced yard for potty breaks. She just gets too distracted on walks to concentrate on the business of doing her business. Even in the yard she requires some patience as she is in no hurry.
Thistle has also enjoyed urban "hiking" and likes walking downtown, meeting new people and hanging out with her person at pet friendly restaurants. She does well meeting other dogs of all sizes and has made some attempts to play with her foster sister. They haven't exactly figured out each other's play style but I think she'd really enjoy a dog friend who would gently help her learn to play. She thinks cats can be fun to chase so her new home should be cat free.
When Thistle is ready for downtime she likes to curl up on the back of the sofa or a dog bed. She also loves cuddling and giving kisses. At night she has learned to go right into her crate next to the big bed but she would really prefer to sleep under the covers with her person.
Thistle is looking for an active owner who is familiar with the quirks of a scruffy terrier. If that is you please fill out an application at sbret.com. Thistle is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and up to date on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Her adoption fee is $175.
