Flower has the softest silky fur and is very calm and cuddly. We think she should be renamed ANGEL.

She approaches new people happily but cautiously, not surprising since she is so small and can easily get hurt.

In the foster home she is with three other small dogs, different ages. She is not interested in them. She is more attached to people than to other dogs. Being a single dog would be fine with her.

Flower arrived with extremely overgrown toenails on her front paws, and she walked with difficulties. Now that her nails are trimmed, she is learning again how to walk properly. Her toes must adjust to the correct positions. She is starting to enjoy walks, up to half an hour.

Flower has spent most of her first few days sleeping or watching, in her kennel/x-Pen (often open), or in our lap, or walking outside.

She does enjoy some chewing toys. She is slowly becoming more comfortable in the rest of the house.

Potty-training is in progress. She will go outside, and on the pee pad. So far, we have not seen her signal that she needs to go.

Flower would be best in a calm environment, even a nursing home.
With all of this said, we need to keep in mind that at time of writing she has been in foster care for barely a week. She has made so much progress already and will continue to develop her sunny personality in her furever home.

Adoption costs: $650.00
