Angel is an adorable little dog with Dobby-ears. Like Dobby, she is very shy and timid when meeting new people and gets anxious when there’s too much activity. She finds comfort and security in her crate which is her haven when she’s feeling nervous. Angel is looking for a quiet home with only adults to help her learn to trust humans again, and another small, calm dog to give her companionship.
Angel needs a family willing to be very patient and allow her to open up on her own terms. She is very anxious when being approached or petted, she may flinch when first touched. She has not shown much interest in playing with toys yet, but does like to play with the resident dog in her foster home as she becomes more comfortable in her environment. She has not yet interacted with cats.
She is a good girl and is house-trained and uses a pee-pad when her humans are away too long for her tiny bladder. Angel walks well on her leash with opportunity to stop and sniff or explore. She loves a good car ride and lays quietly on the seat. Even though she can be visibly nervous going to places, such as the vet, she remains well-behaved and will follow the directions of a trusted human.
Angel is very well crate-trained and also stays in a wire pen for longer periods. It is recommended that her home be equipped with areas, that give her the opportunity to retreat to in safety when she’s feeling overwhelmed.
She is very nervous now, but with a lot of time and patience, she will be a delightful addition to her new family. She has been through a lot in the first few years of her life and she deserves a quiet, loving home to show her that she can trust humans again and feel safe in her home and with her family. Angel is super sweet and deserves the opportunity to spread her wings.
