Personality: Caroline is a very sweet girl who enjoys a laid back life. She loves to go on walks followed by lots of cuddles and belly rubs. Caroline enjoys meeting new people, once she has had a chance to settle into her new home, especially if it comes with snacks and lots of pets. She is looking for a home to call her own where she can be loved and treated like a princess that she is.
History: Caroline came to us from Madera shelter back in March. She has been in a foster home where she has done great with all the residents and is a very sweet and low key girl. She would sit for treats and immediately welcomed visitors after her transition period. Friends and family would stop by just to spend time with her. Caroline was adopted once by a first time dog owners and returned two days later because they were not ready for a large dog. She is known to take couple days to get comfortable in new environments so giving Caroline her own space where she can decompress is recommended and once she has warmed up she will be your little shadow and feet warmer. A training scholarship has been funded by The Pedigree Foundation, to help Caroline and her family during the transition period.
Dog Skills: Caroline can be selective about her canine friends. She prefers to peacefully co-exist with calm, confident male dogs. She hasn't shown any interest in playing with dogs, she prefers to just hang out. Caroline can be little bossy with young and/or timid dogs and she has shown strong focus towards small dogs. It is recommended that she goes home as an only dog or with a well matched confident, calm adult male dog.
Cat Skills: Caroline has shown strong focus and willingness to chase cats. She is recommended to a home with no felines.
Leash Skills: Caroline pulls on leash when excited. She is recommended to wear front-clip harness and would benefit from training on loose leash walking.
Medical: Periodontal disease. This patient has been diagnosed with periodontal disease (also known as gum disease or dental disease). This disease is extremely common in dogs and cats, especially as they age. Periodontal disease occurs when bacterial plaque causes inflammation of the gums and eventual destruction of the bone in which the teeth are anchored. This patient had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of this patient.
