Hi! My name is Moonie! I came to ARTS as an owner surrender when they were having trouble caring for me (as you can see from my before and after photos). I spent a lot of time outside or in my kennel so I was very stinky and matted.
Don’t let my former appearance fool you though, sure I’ve roughed it out before but I’ve adapted to a life of complete luxury very quickly and I’d like to continue that! I’m a very quiet and polite lady who learned indoor manners very quickly. I never bark or make a fuss. The one thing I don’t like is being put in my kennel. I don’t like to remember the times when I spent a lot of time in one.
My ideal home would be a very quiet home with a person (or persons) that are home a lot of the time. I’m not really interested in sharing my home with kids, but another dog friend is a must for me. Please do not apply if you do not have a doggy friend for me. While I enjoy people company, it’s very very clear that I find my best friends in other dogs. Please don’t think that I’ll love you any less, I just need a dog buddy
My new home will need to be patient and help me with my potty training as it takes a little while for me to learn my routines. I like to follow the lead of the dogs in the house though - I’m always paying attention!
I had to have ALL of my teeth out, so I will need yummy high quality soft food for the rest of my life. I have a sublexing patella in one of my knees but I manage it well, my new home should monitor it for me as I get older. But lots of little dogs like me have it. Just don’t let me do any “off the couch acrobatics”.
If you think you are the right home for me please apply. I can’t wait to meet you!!
