Meet Dora, the wonder dog. She is a VERY special dog to all our volunteers. Update from Dora's foster mom: "Dora is very sweet, gentle, cuddly, snuggly, when she sits on my lap, she gently places her paw on my face to make sure I am looking at her. She is completely crate trained, as well as house trained. She will bark only if prompted; but is otherwise very quiet and she walks really well on a leash, doesn’t pull or tug;. She absolutely loves to play with her foster dog brothers – chasing or being chased, bowing, tug o’ war, etc. She naps anywhere she is allowed to go – floor, couch, bed, crate – and will snooze for hours." Dora needs training on recall so she should not be left off leash. She also would not do well on an electric fence. She is a little shy around new people but warms up quickly. Dora has an amazing story. She is a young female, 20 lb dog, about 1.5 years old, who had puppies at our shelter in mid-January. She nursed and weaned those pups until around 6 weeks old when we got a call about an orphaned litter. So she nursed those puppies too. The new pups were 7 in number and mostly big boys, wow. She did all she could and when they were about 2.5 weeks old her milk dried up. So we tube fed them with help from our wonderful vet, Betsy Johnson. Dora still looked out for those babies and slept with them every night. She raised two families in a short, intense period of time. But Dora is just a young dog herself. She likes to play with toys and she enjoys a good chew on a bone. She's quite agile and could be an agility superstar for sure, but in the house she is content to go lie down and work on a bone. She's great with other dogs but she needs her own person, so please don't get her as a "friend for your dog" as she will be first up on the lap and want all the attention. She deserves it! Please fill out an application if you would like to meet this wonderful girl.
