If someone new comes close to Perla she might bark or growl. She isn’t bothered by water so bath time is no problem. For a New Family to Know: Perla comes from a Spanish speaking home.

A volunteer writes: Perla is my little ‘weisswurst’, a stocky snow-white sausage so delicious I want to snuggle with her all day long! This smiling cutie pie has other ideas though and lets me off with a warning when I go too far in the face-smushing and butt rubbing departments–not so fast there stranger lady!–but a minute later all is forgiven and my face is being smothered with grateful kisses. Perla may walk to the beat of her own drummer but he plays a happy tune and it’s clear she really does love to be with people, just on her own terms. She’s eager to get outside and a good leash walker and while she wags her tail in greeting as we pass other pups, we’re told she can get easily overwhelmed in group situations so slow one-on-one introductions in a safe environment are a must when it comes to any doggie socializing. Her super soft mouth and lovely, gentle manners with toys make playtime such a treat, no one’s a better sharer than she and rather than struggle to retrieve the plushie, I struggle to get her to keep a hold of it! Fetch is clearly a familiar past time and her former owner noted that her favorite toy is ‘anything that comes in a ball form’ so a home where she’ll have plenty of interactive exercise would be Perla’s dream come true. She’s not bothered by water so bath time is a breeze and we’re told she also knows commands for sit and stay in Spanish, which unfortunately I do not! Perla is a special wee girl, affectionate yet opinionated, and she needs an equally special forever home where she’ll be offered patient guidance, a little potty training and lots of TLC. If you’re an experienced adopter who understands that every soul is unique and it’s the funny quirks that make a dog a pet, precious Perla could be the very treasure you’ve been waiting to discover–ask for her today!
