Baby it’s cold outside and YOU need a cuddle buddy. Meet GALA! This beautiful girl from Mexico is shy at first and may take a day or two to warm up but once she does she loves humans so much and will give you all her love, always and forever. She definitely knows who her people are and shows her appreciation for all you do for her by putting her front paws around you and snuggling in for some smooches, if you let her. GALA is medium energy and needs a couple good walks per day. She can be nervous on walks with new people or in new places which means she won’t go to the bathroom. Once she gets comfortable she’s much better at this. She’s not currently house trained and doesn’t provide and cues as to when she needs to go so would benefit from a patient owner and scheduled bathroom breaks. A backyard would be nice for her but not a necessity as long as her people are careful about letting her out. She typically picks one spot as her bathroom (currently the hallway in her building, but she’s working on it) so she definitely likes consistency. GALA is selective with other dogs. She’s down to chill with small, calm breeds but gets intimidated when larger, rambunctious dogs come to play and leaves the party ASAP. She’s working on basic commands and is already good with crate training and leash skills. She’s ok with kids and hasn’t been tested with cats. P.S. She likes to eat your socks!! GALA is ready to be your best pal, as long as you keep the belly rubs coming.
