“HAPPY” THEMED PUPPY: 2.5 – 3 months old / Small Mostly Mutts adoption center is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm. Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I’m a sweet but shy and somewhat fearful puppy who would love a family that is dog savvy and calm. I take longer than the normal puppy to warm up to people and some say you must work a bit for my love. I’m the biggest, but not the bravest of my littermates at around 6.5 lbs. Since I am initially very shy with new people, especially men, I’ll sometimes run and hide in my foster home when new folks come over. If men try to pick me up, I have clamped down on them with my teeth out of fear, so a dog savvy family that will expose me to lots of positive experiences with people and that is committed to training me is what I need! A yummy treat will help to win me over, but please don't get offended if I forgot you just gave me a treat - it will take time with new people. Also, please don’t rush to pick me up please. I also have a very loyal nature once I know, trust and love you! Then I’m a great little snuggle bug. I love to play with my siblings and think that another confident and friendly dog in my new home whose behavior I could learn from could really benefit me. I’m pretty vocal when I’m separated from my foster family, so I want a family that has lots of time for me and lots of love to give! I’m doing well with my paper training and at a great age to start my outside potty training in my yard. Since I’m just a baby, I'm teething so I think everything must go in my mouth. Kids toys, electrical cords, fingers, noses, tiny pieces of anything I can find, you get the idea. I am a pup that has tear staining, but there are products on the market that can help with that. Like all puppies, I'll require a devoted owner who will take the time to train me, so I'll grow up to be a polite and well-trained adult dog. Since I have very sharp puppy teeth, have lots of things for me to chew on and start gently training me not to chew on you or the kids so we'll all be happy! There are kids in my foster home and I love and sleep with them, but best no very young kids that may fall or step on me as I’m little. Energy level: Currently 4-6. I'm neutered, micro-chipped and have started my puppy shots, but you will have to finish my series of puppy shots as I grow. My adoption fee is $275.00.
