THIS IS MS. HOLLY GO LIGHTLY!!  And this petite, 2 yr old, 10 lb, white with gray ears (cutest ears ever!) Maltipoo (our best guess) is a delight.  She was adopted from the East Valley shelter and returned in two days because she didn’t get along with their dog.  It’s true, she does not love big dogs…but she is good with most small dogs.  Very playful with small dogs who engage her (but she can get nippy with them).  She acts like a puppy!!  She is, however, a little greedy with her person from time to time and so we think she would prefer a petite, young, canine companion who will engage her.  She really would not like being alone much and she is portable, so a family with kids over 12 yrs old, parents who work from home or are around a lot, who will take her on outings and adventures and lots of walks, would be ideal for this cutie pie.  Younger kids might be put off by her mouthy, puppy personality.  Oh, and don’t wake her when she is sleeping (me either!!).

Holly is a big kisser and likes to cuddle after she has played herself tired.  She loves toys…and bones….and loves to play with her people!  She has a wonderful personality and couldn’t be more adorable if she tried.  And those ears!!  She is not a yappy dog and she can be independent… but most of the time she is your shadow, following you around and wants to be with her humans — and can definitely get under foot.  For that reason, Holly would not fare well in a mature or sedate home.  Petite as she is, she loves her walks.   Occasionally she gets tired in the heat and will come to a full stop!  She is very smart and does her business outside or on pp pads MOST of the time but can have an accident from time to time.  Walking her frequently solves that problem (3x day or out in the yard).  She has had an accident or two, so she will need official training.  We never guarantee they are potty trained anyway… but Holly is on her way.  Could you love this little morsel of deliciousness?
