Brief Bio:

Paisley (AKA Felisa) has been waiting so long for her forever home, and she knows the right person is out there. This poor girl was born on the streets, torn away from her mother as a very young puppy, and through no fault of her own, she has been returned from adoption twice. Her foster mother knows that even though this turmoil has made her slower to trust, she is still an enthusiastic, loving, goofy, kissy girl who will continue to blossom in the right home. Every day, her foster mother sees her gain more and more confidence.

Paisley is funny, playful, and happy. She loves to snuggle, give kisses, and carry around stuffed animals. She does well with cats, is respectful of boundaries and limits, and is potty-trained / doggie-door trained. She knows basic commands and is very enthusiastic about learning. She does very well on recall and loves to run, especially at the dog park, and she would make a great jogging companion! She loves the car, and has enjoyed herself on several-day camping trips. At just barely two years old, she is the perfect age – outgrown the puppy problems, but still enthusiastic and bursting with potential. (Her birthday is approximately 1/15/16). Paisley is a Formosan Mountain Dog (Taiwan Dog) mix, probably with a working breed such as Lab, Dutch Shepherd, or Cattle Dog. She is 24 inches at the shoulder, and just over 50 lbs, full grown.

Paisley has been with her foster mother (on and off) for almost a year, and she has gained so much confidence and courage, that it has been one of the most beautiful journeys her foster mother has ever seen. Paisley is ready, finally, for her forever home. Paisley is no longer afraid of noises, cars, crowds, or strange things that go bump in the yard. She loves every new dog she meets, and would love to be in a home with another young dog – she plays nonstop! Paisley has bonded with several people, and will climb on their laps – including three women and a man. She is enthusiastic about taking treats from many, many others, and will let anyone pet her if her foster mother is there for support. Her one remaining issue is that she is still fearful of people in her home. If she has not bonded with the person, she is suspicious of their actions and can get startled. (She is fine with guests in the house, if she can be outside or in the bedroom.) She would do best in a one-person environment. In the right two-person home, she might do well, as long as she bonds strongly to both people. She would not do well in a home with kids.

(UPDATE: Paisley is currently being fostered with Ailee who she is very bonded and attached to. We hope with some miracle these two girls can find their forever homes together!)
