Meet PIRATE! Although shy at first this girl wants nothing more than your love and approval. She’s nervous in new situations and really likes routine so we’re looking for a patient home who can help her build her confidence and realize just how cool the world around her actually is. She relies on the comfort of what she knows and her safe space, her crate. It’s best to challenge her fears with baby steps and lots of positive reinforcement and at most a firm no. She’s a classic overachiever and works very hard to gain your approval. She’s a very sensitive dog and almost seems to take things personally. For example, being the cheeky pup that she is she pulled a box down and it made a huge noise. She was instantly filled with regret and hid for the next 24 hours like ohmygawd PIRATE why would you do that?! We know there’s a big personality inside this little lady and that she’ll bond very closely with her people and continue to thrive. She’s working on her housetraining but needs to go out a few times during the day so a home with a flexible schedule is necessary. She’ll need help with her leash skills as she’s still a bit nervous outside and hasn’t really gone for any adventure walks just yet. She would love a home with a backyard but could be fine in an apartment as well. PIRATE will respond very well to training and will be very respectful of the rules once she understands them. She’s zen AF – very peaceful and reserved and HATES noise and being messy. She’s affectionate with her people and absolutely loves little humans. She’s dog and cat social too so pals of all kinds can come to her pawty. If you’d like to meet PIRATE fill out an application to adopt
