MEET AUDREY BELLA….and she has two names because she is extra special.  This cute, b/w, 13 lb, 7-8 yr old ShiPoo, as best as we can guess, means to be a good girl, but she is VERY insecure.  Her owner dumped her when she bit someone in the household.   She had been a sweet girl with us, but she is definitely a bit picky with who she likes and who she doesn’t!  She decided she didn’t like her fosters, so she  came back to me for training.  She will snip if you push her when she doesn’t like something (like chewing on her feet when she is anxious).  She likes to lift her lip and show her teeth, but doesn’t always follow thru!  When she does, she means business!!  For this reason, we say no to kids and she will need a very patient parent.  We have found that she is different with different people.  Her fosters think she has sundowners syndrome because she gets cranky in the evening.  She LOVES to cuddle and LOVES being pet…when she is in the mood.  We don’t know why she is a little temperamental, but 80% of the time she is a sweetheart.  It’s difficult to see how adorable she is because her face is black…but we can tell you she needs love and a happy home!  She also likes to pretend she is a “circus dog” by standing straight up on her hind legs on a chair!!  She gets excited to go for walks but when she’s done, she’s done!  She seems to do her business outside, but we never guarantee!  She is quiet and will only bark to chime in or make herself known.  Audrey would be best in a home without any dogs as she wants you all to herself.  She is fine with dogs, just doesn’t want to live with them!  She does not have separation anxiety, but she does get anxious and likes to have her human around.  Sometimes, she likes her independence, but usually only when you want her to do something she doesn’t want to do!!  She can be territorial so it probably would be best for her to be the center of someone’s attention, as single person to make your life complete.  If you are looking for a pup to love, who needs a home, this might be your girl!!  She will need your patience and understanding 🙂 ***currently in training.  Will be available in November.
