Meet CARMELITA! This sweet girl is looking for her forever home but before we go any further we want to let you know that she is a carrier of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) infection. What the HECK does that mean? Well this is something that won’t go away and it is possible that MRSP can be passed from pets to people. The odds of this happening are extremely low however rarely doesn’t necessarily mean never. Because of this CARMELITA should not go to a home with children, elderly people, people who are sick or immunosuppressed people. We can definitely give you more information and we’re happy to answer any questions about this. CARMELITA is totally free to meet people on the street, go to dog parks and you know BE A DOG, this is just an extra precaution. She is a total snuggle monster and basically the best lap dog ever. She absolutely loves her sweaters and jackets and gets SO excited when you pick one up with her leash as that means she's going outside! She would be totally fine in an apartment but does bark occasionally at noises in the hallway. She’s been working on a lot of training and is getting so much better! She’s human friendly but gets nervous if people approach her the wrong way, like towering over her. She also thinks everything is hers (toys, blankets, food off the street) so she’ll need to keep working on resource guarding. House training is nearly perfect and she’s great on leash. Happily walks beside you until she gets too cold and wants to go home. Snuggling is definitely her favourite activity. Your lap is her lap and she wants to sleep right beside you in bed. She’s ok with smaller dogs but afraid of larger and excited dogs. She hasn’t been tested with cats. CARMELITA is going to be an amazing little companion for someone.
