If you are looking for a loyal one-on-one friend, Dora is the perfect fit. She is housebroken, can be trusted alone in the house without crating, is excellent on the leash, only needs morning and evening walks to “take care of business”, and loves to ride in the car. She will come to the door when it is time to go out as she doesn’t want to miss out on a walk. She attaches to her human very fast and is a cutie in every sense of the word, however, she is not a social butterfly. She will hide behind you on walks if a stranger approaches and will leave the room when company arrives.

Dora has been used to living with other easy going small to medium dogs in her foster home and would love to continue that canine companionship along with a comfy couch (safe place) and bed. She gets along great with other dogs and really loves cats. She would do best in a home another cat or dog to play with. She is uncomfortable with children around on a regular bases and seems to prefer women over men. Dora is cute, silly, predictable, and shy with strangers. A fenced back yard is helpful until she gains your trust on the leash. All this well behaved/shy little girl wants is a permanent home where she can feel safe and loved.
