From the foster: Simply put, Beauty is AMAZING. She is as sweet as they come and wants nothing more than to shower you (and everyone she meets) in love. She’s the biggest cuddle bug! She is completely content just napping on your legs while watching tv and cuddling under the covers with you is her favorite thing in the world. When she is ready for a snuggle, she will gently put her paw on your hand, practically diving under once you lift the covers to get close. On top of being the best cuddler in the world, Beauty is well trained, already knowing how to sit, come, stay and give paw. Right now she can get a little excited when she hears moment in the hallway, but we’re working on quieting down when she greets the noises with a bark. How awesome is that? Most of the hard work has already been done for you! If you do want to teach her more tricks, Beauty is incredibly receptive, listens very well, and seems to be easily trained. Good news for your carpets, Beauty seems to be potty trained, never having an accident when left alone outside of her crate. She also doesn’t get into any mischief and shoes can rest safely knowing they will not be slobbered over. She also has excellent leash manners, starting out at a fast pace and then slowing to a stroll. Right now, she’s very interested in small animals like rats and pigeons, so keeping treats handy will help focus her attention back on you and keep the walk going. Beauty loves to play fetch and has the most adorable little pounce that she does when she gets the toy! You can’t help but smile.Needless to say, Beauty has seriously stolen my heart and seeing her every day has filled me with such joy. She is absolutely adorable (just ask those who stop us to comment on how cute she is on our walks!) and she really loves everyone. She has met 4 different people so far while being with me and she treats everyone the same: giving hugs and kisses and licking their arms! (And they all can provide rave reviews about her as well!) With that, Beauty is looking for a home with someone (or even better, a family!) who can provide her with all of the attention and love that she deserves and ideally someone who will be around with her during the day more often than not. If you are ready for the PERFECT cuddle buddy and someone who will forever love you unconditionally and bring you happiness, Beauty is the one! I dare you to not instantly fall in love with her. smile emoticon
