Hi there, my name is Carmella. I can be somewhat shy when I meet you for the first time but once I get to know you, I slowly start to bloom like a beautiful rose.
I can be very anxious and I do not like to be in a crate or confined space. My new home should be quiet and peaceful. If there are children in the home, then the older and quieter, the better. I do truly want to please my humans, so even if I am being shy, some positive reinforcement will really help me. I am very food motivated, so some tasty treats are a great tool for me, whereas I don’t really play with toys much.
I am fully house-trained and love to go for walks. The sights and smells of the neighbourhood really invigorate me. I like to meet other dogs, especially those around my size, but I tend to be submissive and unsure. A small, calm dog at home would be a good friend for me. I haven’t met cats yet, but I hear they can be ok. I will let you know when I want attention by touching you with my nose or giving you a little lick to say ‘pet me’.
Once I’m comfortable in my home, I like to prance around when I’m happy. I will follow my humans around just to be near and see what they might be up to. At the end of the day, I’m happy to chill on the couch and be with my family.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
