All About Me
PERSONALITY & BEHAVIORS
Betty Boop is a sweet and smart puppy who loves a good belly rub!
Because a lot of the world is unfamiliar to Betty, she needs a little extra time to warm up to new sounds, friends, and places. She is looking for a relaxed, calm home environment with no small children, although she'd do well with older children. We are also looking for someone experienced with small terriers. And we are hoping for a home with a small, older dog who could teach her the ropes.
This brave girl is gaining confidence daily, and has done well on adventures to the groomer and the pet store. She had a blast playing with another small dog in her foster parents' neighborhood, and has happily met larger dogs through the fence and on walks. And car rides? Oh, yes please!
Betty's adoptive family will need to take her for a walk a few times a day; and because of her small size, she should only free roam in yards with very secure fences that have no gaps.
Betty walks nicely on the leash, but don't be surprised if she tries to scamper after a squirrel! A stop-and-smell-the-roses kind of gal, she loves to roll in the grass and sniff her surroundings. And if you encounter a bug, don't worry--Betty will protect you from it.
House-trained and crate-trained, Betty sleeps through the night without a peep in her crate. And she's a quick learner, especially when treats are involved. She doesn't care for fruits or vegetables, but golly, does this babe love cheese! Betty knows Sit and Down, and she's working on Stay. And since those squirrels and birds out the window can be a little too interesting, Betty is also learning Quiet.
If you're looking for a cuddle buddy, a walking companion, or a partner in fetch or tug-of-war, Betty just might be the perfect match for you!
Betty has feathery white wiry fur with beige markings on her face and ears. She's such a pretty little thing! She will need periodic grooming to keep her shipshape.
Betty is up-to-date on vaccinations, and is microchipped and spayed.
Betty was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter.
