BEETLE JUICE! BEETLE JUICE! BEETLE JUICE! She’s a bit shy so she only comes around when you yell her name three times, then she’s so wonderfully weird. BEETLE is currently nervous on initial meetings and does best when ignored and allowed to come up to you on her own time. She’s more social with women and takes a few more interactions with men. We’ve found that being in a home with another dog has really helped her come out of her shell and also another playful pup is fun to play with during her spurts of hilarious energy. We definitely want to see BEETLE go to a home with another dog! BEETLE has come along so much from her time with SOS, from opening up to people and other dogs, to becoming potty trained and crate trained, although a new environment will need some awesome guidance and leadership to keep the game strong! She is currently living in a bottom floor house with a backyard and does great, but we think she’d do fine in an apartment as well. BEETLE has done the whole apartment thing before and just needs support warming up and getting exposure to your space. New elevators and staircases take some getting used to! She isn’t a big dog and doesn’t take up much space, mostly because she’s at your side at all times. She hasn’t been tested with cats and has had limited exposure to kids and done well. She does although excitably nip and is nervous so needs to be watched with kids. She does have puppy energy as well as temperament for the most part and will need consistency to ensure she grows up to be a well behaved pooch! Please expect BEETLE to be nervous for the first few weeks in a new home. It takes patience, leadership and trust to get this girl to shine bright like we are seeing her today.
