Adoptable Dog Of The Week – Bunny
Hopping her way into our hearts is Bunny, our Adoptable Dog of the Week. Bunny is an adult female Pitbull from Richmond, VA. She’s already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This super cutie was rescued from the Wake County Animal Shelter in Raleigh, NC in May 2013. Her name was Sweetie Bunny while she was there. She had been at the shelter for well over a month and was on “the list”. She’s such a fun dog with a good disposition; we found room for her in our foster program. She’s on the small side, around 33-35 lbs with ears that do just about every position imaginable from fully erect to half pricked and even out to the side. They haven’t figured out what they want to do and will probably stay expressive. She’s mostly white with some black patches. She has a small underbite that makes her look pouty sometimes.
Everything is super fun and life is just one big party with this little girl. She’s still young and so she has a lot of puppy energy to burn. She could use a jogging partner or someone who is willing to take obedience classes. She’s also a good candidate for flyball or agility. She will be taking some beginning flyball classes with her foster mom in January. She has some good basic skills, sit, down, come, kennel up, and wait. She’s very food motivated and has excellent eye contact. She pulls a little on the leash. She’s also has nice tug drive and likes to play with rope toys.
She’s house broken, crate trained, is great in a car and is friendly to cats and other dogs. She’s submissive to other dogs. She’s super friendly and happy to meet everyone she possibly can and sometimes it’s hard to curb her enthusiasm. She is an absolute wiggle monster and the more you baby talk to her, the wigglier she becomes. She’s good with kids, but a bit on the bouncy side so toddlers that are wobbly on their feet are probably not the best choice, though she does respect a baby gate.
She has a very soft disposition and doesn’t need more than a verbal correction to be very sorry and have her feelings hurt. But it only takes a minute to forget her troubles and return to the life of the party. She’s sweet and snuggly. She loves to sleep in the bed but can and will sleep in her crate but not before giving you the sad eye.
She’s a really nice dog and should mature nicely into a well-rounded adult dog. Superb temperament, no resource guarding from people or other dogs, no food guarding, takes treats nicely, give up her toys when asked. All around, a very friendly, very nice dog.
