Miss Tickle is 3 years old.
This pretty girl is going to shower you with kisses at every opportunity, but she would like to know you a little better before she is going to show you that sweet side of hers. Around new people in her life she is very cautious and nervous but with a little time and patience she will prove herself to be an adorable companion. She loves treats, which can be used to get her comfortable. There is nothing wrong with taking the detour through her stomach to win her heart!
Currently Miss Tickle spends part of the week in a foster home where she adjusted very well to life in a home with 4 people, 2 dogs and 1 cat. She is getting used to going on long walks which were very scary for her at first but now she is doing very well and keeping up with her foster siblings. On a regular schedule with reasonable intervals in between potty breaks, she is perfectly housetrained. Miss Tickle is crate trained but there really is no need for her to be crated. She is comfortable being left alone for a few hours, sleeps all night either curled up at the foot of the bed or in her own doggy bed, and in the car she will either sit calmly in your lap or stay in the back seat.
She loves her foster brother, treats her foster sister with respect and greets the cat with a wagging tail and gentle kisses. Miss Tickle could be an only pet or mixed with other dogs or cats. Just like with people, meeting a new dog takes a little more time than just a quick sniff, but once she accepts the newcomer as part of the pack, she will enjoy the company.
Miss Tickle would do best in an adult household or adult/teenager household. If you think Miss Tickle might be the dog for you but are just not quite sure, ask the shelter staff about the possibility of fostering her for a period of time. This gives both of you a little time to warm up to each other and find out if it is a good match. Miss Tickle is eagerly waiting for somebody to come along and finally give her a chance so she can show the world what a sweet dog she really is.
