My name is Dahlia. I am about 8 years old and 8 pounds. I am very sweet and gentle and I want to be your friend.
Right now, I am shy, but I become more trusting every day. I used to shy away from being picked up, but now I stay put and let my foster mom pick me up. I'm learning that it usually means something good is going to be happen!
A calm household would be great for me. A lot of activity, sounds, and children make me nervous and I'm just not used to it all yet. I don't ask for much and I enjoy the simple things in life. Like curling up on a dog bed or watching my foster mom.
I am working on all sort of doggie skills. My house training is coming along and I'm working hard. I've mastered stairs and am learning about leashes. I sort of don't move much when I'm hooked up to one, but with more practice, I'm hoping to get more comfortable! I've become more comfortable with my voice. I don't use it much at all, but do make some sounds when I get excited about meal times or when I get startled.
I like to follow the other dogs to see what we are going to do next. There are puppies in the house and I like to make sure they are doing well. I also check on the resident dog. I even monitor the house from my dog bed and make sure things are going smoothly. My supervisor skills are pretty darn good. I am even thinking of asking for a raise of two extra dog treats a day!
Having a companion around most the time, whether they be a dog or human, is something I need. With patience and love, I know I can be a great pup! I hope I get to show you just how great I can be.
Many of our dogs are rescued from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.
