Diamond in the Ruff - Canine
Personality: First impression Gucci is as cute as a button, however she can be very shy and hesitant when getting to know new people and may take time to warm up. After you have won her over with yummy treats she will insist on sitting in your lap. She is also the master of flopping over for belly rubs for the people she knows. She also enjoys playing fetch with tennis balls. Due to her fearful behaviors it is recommended she go to a quiet adult household with some small dog experience.
History: Gucci was brought in as a stray.
Dog Skills: Gucci does best with other polite quiet small dogs. She is not a fan of dogs who are too forward and will correct appropriately.
Leash Skills: Gucci walks well on leash when she is comfortable with her handler.
Medical : This patient may have a flea allergy, which means that the pet is allergic to flea bites. Pets with this condition can develop very itchy skin and hair loss even when they only have a few fleas. While at HSSV, this pet has been treated with monthly flea prevention, such as Advantage or Frontline. The new adopters are advised to keep up with monthly flea prevention in order to control this possible flea allergy. If monthly flea control alone is not controlling the skin condition, the adopting family is advised to consult their family veterinarian for further treatment options. Gucci was also brought in with severe matting of her fur and was shaved during her spay. Adopters should find a professional groomer and keep up with her grooming regularly to prevent painful matts in the fur.
