Meet OPHELIA… and no she will not grow into those ears. Isn’t she cute though? She totally looks like she’s related to Dobby from Harry Potter. OPHELIA is a straight up cuddle monster and she LOVES attention. She bonds easily with her people and it’s not long before she’s snuggled up next to you or casually licking your toes… which she thinks is a very appropriate form of affection. She’s chill in the home and is comfortable in a smaller living space. If she’s not snoozing the day away she’s likely just chewing her bone somewhere near you, which she’ll then hide cause it’s her most prized possession and she needs to guard it with her life. She doesn’t really understand the concept of toys yet but is starting to learn how to play fetch with her kibbles. She’s medium energy overall but with the JRT in her she does enjoy running around. A home with a backyard would be great but isn’t absolutely necessary as long as she has an opportunity to visit a secure area to run around regularly. OPHELIA does have separation anxiety and doesn’t like being left alone. She is crate trained and is working on being more comfortable in there when her people are gone but is currently vocal. She’s fine in the crate when people are around. She doesn’t really have a lot of street sense and has a strong desire to chase after smaller creatures and cars so off leash is not recommended until she improves her focus and recall. She does have a prey drive but met a cat briefly and was interested but not overly excited or vocal. With a proper introduction and some time we think she would be cool with a feline pal. She can be a little bit skittish around other dogs at first but is genuinely interested in interacting with them. She especially loves dogs her size who love running around with her. She’ll need some humans who can help build her confidence further and continue to expose her to new situations. If you’d like to meet OPHELIA fill out an application to adopt now.
