Meet Godiva

******Please note, once completing the initial screen you will be connected with the placement for a video chat. or an in person meet and greet. ************

We are a volunteer run rescue and donate our time to these dogs. IF you are not serious about moving forward in our adoption process, please do not apply. If someone other than yourself is part of the decision making process, please make sure you have spoken with them and they are on board. We really do not want to waste anyone's time if you are not serious about adopting this dog.

Godiva, 3 year old, spayed female, Pitbull mix, 56 pounds. Godiva is in a foster home in Camas, Washington and is available for meet and greets. If you do not live within reasonable driving distance of Camas, WA a virtual chat can be arranged.

Godiva was saved from an overcrowded shelter in San Antonio, Texas. She spent time in foster care in Texas and then made her way to Washington in February. She is a little hard to capture in pictures, but she has the most beautiful shiny coat. We really hope you consider giving this girl a forever home!

Godiva is perfection in all ways - she is sweet and docile, playful but respectful, dog and people friendly, and is adored by everyone who meets her. All who meet her agree: Godiva is the perfect dog.

Godiva has been around many other dogs - males/females, old/young and the whole gamut of personality - and she is consistently amazing. She enjoys tug-o-war and playing, she picks up on play cues well and can go from full blown "play" mode to settling down into her bed for naps.

She plays rambunctious/rough with her foster's female shepherd. Both girls tend to play rough and their play is limited to keep it at a level that the foster is comfortable with. However, with simple redirections - "Hey. Enough. Too Rough." they both stop. She's also learned "sit," "stay" and "come."

Godiva also plays with the male doberman but much less so - with him she is brief in play with maybe a couple of bows and bats. She is taking cues and limiting her play with him in a way that he is comfortable. He has not had a lot of experience playing with dogs and doesn't seem to be great at it.

All this being said Godiva does NOT play endlessly! :) She will chew on bones, stretch out in front of the fire, and curl up on the couch with you while all the dogs are in the room. She likes squeaky bones, plays fetch, tosses a ball up to herself and catches it. She is curious and likes to go on walks just to sniff around. She lets you dress her up.

Godiva walks well on a leash and is crate and house trained. She is great on a leash, she walks beside you. Godiva may start out a little more energetic but quickly calms. When walked with other pups, Godiva wants to keep up with the others or be in the lead position.

Godiva is mostly house broken: if you fail to take her out frequently enough, she will go on the floor. In particular, she will go in the sunroom which is an indoor/outdoor (feeling) space. Potential adopters should expect some regression as Godiva settles into the new routine but she is a quick study!

She is crated every night for sleeping and does wonderfully from 9p.m. until 7a.m. She hasn't had to be crated during the day much as someone is always home.

Godiva would prefer a furever family who is home more than they are away since she has a lot of love to make up for and is very eager to give/receive that love and affection. She is always very happy to see people and insists she has never met a stranger, they're just friends she hasn't kissed yet!

She is extremely cuddly and affectionate. This is one of her best qualities. She loves you! She wants pets. She wants to curl up beside you and be warm and keep you warm. She likes little doggie massages. She lays on her back and smiles. She is loving and wants to be loved.

Godiva shares her toys and has shown no issues with food aggression or resource guarding, and overall there haven't been any observed negative behavioral issues. As a general rule of the foster, she is fed away from the other dogs but Godiva has no issues with humans or animals near her food.

Godiva is in a home with older kids (aged 12, 14 and 17) and she has previously been around young children (ages 2 and 4 years), and while she sometimes gets excited and jumps or has the zoomies, overall she is very gentle and good with kids. We typically recommend a home with kids over the age of 10yrs but do not anticipate there to be any reason Godiva cannot safely be around even young toddlers. We do not have history with cats.


***Listed BREED and AGE - We are taking our best guess & recommendations from our veterinarian on age, breed and size when fully grown. We rarely know a dog's exact age nor are we able to tell the true or full breed mix of dogs as our information is limited most of the time. ***
