RECENTLY ADOPTED

Mulberry

Personality Color: green

Green dogs are a bit more shy and sensitive, maybe a little anxious, but are sweet and they try hard. These dogs will flourish with patient adopters providing gentle guidance and confidence building. They are likely too timid for active homes with children, and would do best in a calm, quiet home getting the TLC they deserve.

With some confidence building and positive experiences, I know I’ll come out of my shell. Visit me today!

Mulberry recently spent some time in foster, here’s what the humans had to say about her:

“A very good girl and very chill. She was easy to care for because she’s a bit of a homebody – she was the one that didn’t want to walk any further than the end of my small side street! Also she’s a great walker. Needs some work on house training but she got better as we went along.

A total Velcro dog – followed me all around the house. I saw some signs of separation anxiety so that’s something to keep an eye on. Though maybe once she feels more confident in the house and that her person will always return, she’ll better when left alone.

She actually did ok with the cats! I tried to keep them apart but we had to walk by them a lot and the kittens had zero self preservation. She still doesn’t quite get them though so she’s need slower intros. Dog-savvy cats would help – she got a little agitated when they growled/hissed at her.

Super food motivated and quite the counter surfer”
