Dotty Apply to adopt me

Or, make a donation toward my care:

Physical Description: Dotty is a beautiful white dog with white eyelashes and a few black spots on her ears and nose. She is very lean and athletic. Her DNA test results were 40% Boxer, 18% Golden Retriever, as well as Staffordshire Terrier, German Shepard, and Dalmation.

Personality: This loving and cuddly girl has a great base of training and excellent manners. She doesn't beg or chew, is fully house broken, lets humans go first, and waits patiently to go outside in the morning. She loves to be active and play, as well as rest in a nice sunny spot in the house. She is wonderful with people and dogs she knows, but can be anxious meeting new people and animals until she feels safe. She is working on her leash manners and will do great with some additional training.

History: Because of her anxiety with new people and animals, Dotty would do best in a stable home with good routines and without a lot of visitors. A fenced yard would be great. No dog parks or tagging along with family on public outings. Dotty is currently doing well in a home with two other dogs and two kids.
