Pretty Girl

Available for Adoption

My Personality & Needs

Personality:
Pretty Girl is a sweet senior looking for a place to call her own. She is deaf and blind, so it will take her awhile to get the run of new house. She sees the world through her nose. She does not enjoy restraint when it comes to vet care.

Recommended Households:
Pretty Girl is going to need a home that has no stairs, or have them blocked off, and is not planning on moving with her. She will not do well with constant change. She is deaf and blind and needs a home where the routine and layout of the house does not change. Should live in a clutter free home to keep her safe from running into things. She will also need a home that is financially stable to keep up with her chronic ear issues and seasonal allergies along with senior pet vet care. She is allergic to fleas so will need to be kept up on flea preventative. She may guard food items.
Crate training is recommended for house training a dog or puppy as it is the most efficient and effective method- it also helps prevent destructive chewing, door darting, and gives a dog a place to retreat. We recommend a positive reinforcement training class to instill good dog manners, provide socialization, and build a strong dog/adopter bond- This dog has a voucher for discounted classes.
