Mixed Breed, Small (under 24 lbs fully grown)/Mix
Belle is a social girl with a lot of energy. She would do best in a home with children 12 years and older. She seems to have very little understanding on how to appropriately interact with humans. She is a bit rough when seeking out attention . She gets worked up and will resort to nipping, jumping and scratching out of excitement or to get your attention. She is a door dasher and just wants to go, go, go. Extra precautions should be taken when around doors. Belle is good with other dogs. Belle has special medical needs, she has partially torn one of her cruciate ligament and is currently on cage rest to allow it to heal.These dogs were rescued from a very small house with over 150 other dogs. Most of them are very friendly and affectionate dogs but lack the social skills and training that you would expect from your average pet. They are not used to being alone and would do best in a home with another dog as a companion. Some behavior challenges you can expect to see with these dogs are; difficulty with housetraining, frequent marking or urinating on objects in the home, not easily accepting people, unable to interact appropriately with people, and/or becoming overly attached/separation anxiety. These dogs have never been walked on a leash or have had any obedience training. Some dogs may show obsessive-compulsive behaviors such as spinning, barking, chewing, digging, and object hoarding. These are all behaviors that are a result of them not getting enough attention and/or stimulation in their past lives.Adopting a pet is a big decision and it is our goal to help you find a perfect match between you and your new family member.
