When you’re so gorgeous and also have the personality to match… meet TRIXIE! This super sweet Dominican pup is settling in pretty well to her new life. She is young still so a lot of her time is spent observing things in the neighbourhood as she continues to build her confidence. She’s still a bit apprehensive with new things, like people, places and other dogs. She is very curious though so as long as she’s given a bit of time to approach the situation on her terms she usually warms up quickly. When meeting new people she prefers that they get down to her level so she can give them a quick sniff which usually escalates pretty quickly to a lick and a cuddle. She doesn’t like when people approach her too quickly or when people block doorways. TRIXIE is very affectionate and relaxed in the home. She likes to be near you without being right up in your face and is happy to curl up and nap near you. She is working on crate training and is comfortable being in there for short periods of time but does not like to be in there too long so spending a full day in the crate without breaks is not ideal for her. She’s comfortable having people coming and going during the day and would definitely need a dog walker if her humans are out of the house for an extended period of time. She’s medium energy and will require adopters who are fairly active. She’s been getting a few long walks per day which has been a great opportunity for her to explore. She’s fine with other dogs but is a little shy with more dominant dogs in which case a quick sniff hello is enough for her. She stares longingly at dogs running around and playing at the park but hasn’t quite worked up to that yet. She is technically not kid tested but is very curious about them and given her gentle nature we think she would be ok. She hasn’t really been around cats but we think she would be ok with them too. If you’d like to meet TRIXIE fill out an application to adopt now!
