No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Numi! She is an energetic and dainty girl who loves to prance, chase her human kids, play with toys, and rough house with other pups who will let her. Her paperwork says she is 6 months old but she still has baby teeth and is teething and we are thinking she is more like 4 months old. She will be spayed before being adopted out. She is up to date on shots and is healthy. She will stay small, probably about 30 lbs. full grown.
When you first meet her, she may run up and greet you, but if you extend your hand to her she may run away. She seems to be shy at first but warms up quickly and she truly craves attention, but doesn’t like being picked up . She has gone on several walks and is improving every time. She sleeps in a crate, but needs to be near her people at night to settle down or she will bark and whine. She loves cuddles, sleeping on the floor, and giving kisses. She is very intelligent and learns commands, tone, and body language quickly, but she can also be aloof and independent.
Numi is definitely on alert and will tell you when she hears something isn’t right. She has a small muffled bark that only comes out when she is startled, but is otherwise generally quiet. She has no food aggression, toy aggression or problems with resource guarding. She would do best in a house with either kids she can play with, another dog to play with, or both. She seems to really thrive and learn from the other dogs she has been with on how to trust people and new surroundings.
Numi is being fostered in Dublin. Meet-and-greets can be arranged, as long as safe-distancing is followed.
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
