Dainty little Rosebud the puppy is ready to be your next best friend. She's likely going to remain under 15 pounds as an adult which is very convenient since she wants to go everywhere her people go! Rosebud is spayed and just got her third booster which means she is ready to begin meeting adopters to find an amazing family. This pup is active and rowdy and enjoys playing with the big dogs in the yard! In the evenings she loves lounging on the couch with the family in the evenings after a good play session. She's crate trained for nighttime and car rides and she's doing really well with potty training but her tiny bladder requires many trips out during the day still. Rosebud is reserved like her shy mama Jessie, but warms up nicely to new people if they are patient and calm. Her foster home has other dogs and cats and she loves trying to play with them all. One of her favorite activities is laying in the sun and pushing her front legs through the warm dirt like a bulldozer. Rosebud is a tiny thing but she stretches up to give her people kisses. We are working hard to help socialize Rosebud and teach her to be brave in new places and around new people. She has a lot of learning to do so a very committed family with tons of time to attend training classes is a must!
We ask that all WCAL puppy adopters commit to attending a 4-week long reward-based training class with their new puppy (we'll help you find a qualified, dog-friendly trainer near you). This is the best way we know how to help you bond with your new pup, give you access to current training techniques and ensure that your new dog becomes a well-rounded member of society. We believe in being proactive and know that the best time to train a dog is NOW! It's important that the dogs we rescue get the very best start to reduce their chances of being surrendered to a shelter or banished to a backyard as unruly, untrained adolescents after they are no longer cute puppies. While we can guess that this puppy will remain small because her mother is only 14 pounds at 2 years old, she was left in a cardboard box on the side of the road and so we don't know anything about her background and cannot be certain about her specific breed mix.
