As part of the Valentines’ Day holiday, we’ll be blogging about 1 dog each day until the big day!
Thalia is a SWEETHEART and such an EASY KEEPER! She is a beautiful, happy little dog. She may be a little shy and slow to warm up, but she becomes more interactive as she begins to relax. It did not take long for her to attach to her foster mom, so we are confident she will adjust quickly in her new home as well. When she is not wrestling with her foster brothers & sisters, she can be found tucked into a lap and cuddling with her person. Petting and conversation are very high on her favorites list. When in a stressful situation or in the company of small children (under the age of 10), Thalia chooses to leave the area rather, or hide behind her person, than become acquainted. She learns quickly and enjoys rewards in the form praise and, of course, tasty treats. She does greet visitors and family members with her wagging tail and bright face. Strangers are sometimes met with a bark until she is sure her person knows the stranger. Thalia has good leash skills and enjoys walks on sunny days. She would most likely do best in a quiet but active family with no very small children. This little beauty wants to go home to her forever family and she’ll repay them with her love and loyalty! Thalia is spayed and microchipped.
Thalia comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. PUP was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs PUP pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington State. She is current on her DHPP, Rabies, and bordetella. She tested negative for heartworm and has been wormed and flea treated. She was attacked by a large dog at the shelter and received staples for her bite wounds.
