Dora came to NBGR, an owner surrender. She is 8 months old and
full of vigor. She is as energetic as any 8 month old puppy. Dora
loves to run and play, gets along well with other dogs and she
just loves everybody. She uses caution with the unfamiliar and
it seems that she has a healthy fear of a few things and/or noises.
Dora is a solid girl. Healthy. And she is a big girl, weighing
it at 15 pounds. She is up to date on all shots. She is also microchipped
and will be spayed prior to being placed in her new home. She
is learning crate training and doing very well. Dora loves human
companionship, and still tolerates being left alone; after a few
moments of whining will settle down when left alone crated.
This girl is however, in the puppy equivalent of the terrible
twos. She loves to bark. She loves to chew things, but is easily
redirected. Provided with toys, she will play and chew on those
items, still she does need to be watched and taught what is off
limits. For the sake of personal items, Dora, at this time in
her life, needs to be crated when she is left alone. Dora is very
intelligent so it is doubtful that there will be too much effort
required to train her. She loves to play, especially with other
dogs. She would do well in a home with other dogs near to her
age but one probably should be careful with older dogs in the
home. She's big, playful and clumsy; she could possibly be "too
much" for a senior dog. Dora will chase cats, but so far seems
to get along with cats if they are tolerant of dogs.
Though she will make a great addition to a family, because of
her energy level she will undoubtedly need a home with a fenced
yard so she can have room to run.
Dora is being fostered in Pensacola, Florida.
If you are
interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact
Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind
that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where
they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area
is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get
the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.
