My name is Suki and I’m a sweet, sassy and willful little girl of two looking for a forever home. My foster Mom says I’m very loving and affectionate — and as feminine as they come. But that’s not all. I’m also a diamond in the rough. Mom is a trainer and she’s doing her best to teach me the proper way to behave in the world. She says we are making progress but I will need to continue my ‘learning’ with someone who is a super smart, savvy dog person- someone with a lot of training experience. (Not just someone who has had dogs throughout their lives.) . If that sounds like you, please read on!
While I am long on (good) looks and cute as can be, I’m also pretty willful. I like to do what I like to do (which is why I need someone who is smarter than I am and will guide me into perfect behaviors.
I walk beautifully on a leash and like to ride in the car. (Did I mention that I’m a great walking companion too? Well I am –plus people love to stop and admire my cuteness- so whoever walks me gets a lot of attention, I mean exercise, too!)
On my walks, however, I do tend to bark at the dogs who pass us. Mom corrects me with a verbal command so I don’t bark again. That’s one of the reasons that she says I need an experienced owner and one who will show me the best way to behave.
I do love to cuddle and am known to snuggle up to Mom and put my head right under her neck and stay there for as long as I can. That makes me feel very loved and protected – and Mom likes it too.
I’m also not a pup that is good around children. If you have children or grandchildren that visit I’m not the one for you. Sorry but I’m an ‘adults-only’ kind of pup. Mom says I was adopted before I became a FurKid simply because I am cute. The people who adopted me had no dog experience and I got off to a very bad start – so Mom has worked hard to “undo” some of the things that I learned in my previous home.
My Ideal Home:
- Someone home most of the time
- No other FurKids — I like to be the center of attention
- Someone willing to further train me
- Adults only
- NO children or grandchildren
- Recent dog experience
- Rescue dog experience
- Experience with behavioral issues a real plus
Since I was neglected in my ‘past life’ I’m waiting to make up for lost time – and am looking for a forever family who will appreciate my femininity and my affectionate nature – and will continue my training so I can become the best little girl that I can be. Mom says there is no doubt that I’m well worth the effort.
Because I have a number of on-going training requirements, if you are interested in potentially submitting an application to adopt me, please first send an email indicating the kind of training you have done previously, as well as the types of issues that training has addressed. You may send that email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is an alignment between what you have done and what I need, a volunteer will be back in touch to ask you to complete an adoption application.
Cuddles and tail wags,
Sweet and Sassy Suki
