Any potential adopter, please read thoroughly:

Duchess is a sweet and loving cocker spaniel mixed pup who melts hearts with her big brown eyes and silky soft fur. She's a bit of a firecracker, though - this headstrong, 7 month old, little girl knows what she wants and isn't afraid to ask for it. But don't worry - she just needs guidance and boundaries to help her grow into a well-behaved adult dog.

Her needs:
A family who will spend lots of time with her, as she thrives on attention and interaction
Guidance and consistency with potty training, as she's still learning the ropes
A safe and secure space to play and exercise, as she's full of energy and loves to run around
A crate or designated area to keep her safe when left alone, as she can be prone to chewing if left unsupervised
Positive reinforcement training, as she's food-motivated and eager to please

Her likes:

Playing fetch and chasing after toys
Snuggling up for cuddles and snoozles
Going on adventures with her favorite humans
Getting treats and praise for good behavior
Learning new tricks and commands
Having other pups to play with - she loves a good game of chase and tug of war.

Her dislikes:

Being left alone for long periods of time without supervision
Being scolded or punished for mistakes - Duchess responds best to positive reinforcement
Being approached too quickly - she will pee from fear.

Her special talents:

Duchess is a quick learner and picks up new skills in no time
She's a master snuggler and loves to burrow under blankets for cozy cuddles
She's got a wagging nub that never stops moving when she's happy
She's undeniably the cutest pup you've ever seen

Duchess is a very special puppy but needs exactly the right home where she can thrive!! Please read and re-read above and if you feel your family is the perfect fit for her then please apply to adopt her!!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
