Sunny is a dog rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico. She had puppies and once her and the babies were captured, their lives changed forever! No more homelessness for her babies and no more worries for mama! Its our job to make sure she gets the life she truly deserves. Sunny takes a little time to trust. We think a confident dog buddy would be great. Someone willing to do training with her, even better! Training helps build confidence and trust. Sunny is a wonderful and friendly girl. She is house broken, crate trained, loves exploring the yard, LOVES the outdoors and really enjoys going for walks. Would make a wonderful exercise buddy for sure. She is smaller than she looks in the pictures, only 24lbs. She has longer legs than a doxie. We think she is a chi-weenie but who knows for sure.
Her adoption fee is $275. Must be willing to travel to Pasadena, MD to meet/adopt Sunny
A little from her foster mom: Sunny is a lovely mannered house guest and sweet girl once she gets to know you. She is reserved at first and may take some time to interact. She wants to play but sadly, her foster mom is a poor playmate. Gets along well with other dogs, communicates clearly what is not allowed. Has no issues with the elderly dachshund in residence. She can be a bit "chatty" (if you've ever had a GSD you know what this is). Seems to have a little feistiness as her personality continues to unfold daily. Not overly affectionate but definitely sweet and likes attention. Needs to know where you are but not attached like velcro. Secure fenced yard a must. Walks well on leash, fine in the car, and let me handle/pick up immediately.
