Spicy is sweetheart that would love nothing more than to give loads of kisses, and snuggle in your lap. She’s a timid girl, currently finding her brave in foster care with two resident dogs to help her. She seems to thrive with a confident dog, and would likely do well with a fur buddy of some kind in her furever home. Her rescuer noted she was good with dogs and cats - sometimes needing to be told to leave the kitties alone, but not due to prey drive…just good old fashioned puppy craziness lol! She’s drawn to large dogs - she absolutely loves the 103lb male in her current foster home.
Spicy’s quite shy. She often pees when startled, or if you approach her too quickly. Each day in foster she’s shown definite improvement, but patience will be key with her. We’re working very diligently with her to get her on track for potty training and gaining doggie confidence, and she’s already shown some great progress. In no time, she’ll be a pro.
Spicy and her siblings are all parvo survivors, who had a scary battle early on. Thankfully her rescuer went above and beyond, taking amazing care of them all, and Spicy and her siblings have fully recovered. Her litter consisted of 4 brothers and one sister, so this girl has learned how to roughhouse with the best of them. She loves squeak toys and playing fetch.
If you’re looking for the sweetest puppy around, you found her! She’d love nothing more than to be your bestfriend furever.
