Description

Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Name: Betty (fka Chili/Totoro) Breed: Lab mix Approximate Age: 2 years old Approximate Weight: 20 lbs Personality: tentative initially but loves her humans once she gets to know them Observations with Dogs: has done well with other dogs with proper introduction Observations with Cats: may be too interested to coexist peacefully with cats Observations with Kids: she does not do well with children Currently Living at: DC area foster home Betty has grown so much in her time with us! She arrived as an extremely fearful and reactive pup, and has really blossomed with the help of some positive reinforcement, patience, and the assistance of anxiety medication. She does need ongoing management, a calm and stable home, and plenty of exercise to be her best self. Her adopter will also need to enlist the assistance of a fear-free, force-free trainer. We realize that might seem like a lot, but this girl is worth it, especially for that moment when she finally realizes she is safe and loved, and settles in at last. She thrives in a calm, predictable environment. That means homes with children or multiple roommates/family members are not a good fit for her. If children are possibly in your future, or if you may have grandchildren regularly visiting, your home unfortunately would not be ideal for Betty. Betty has a lot of great attributes - she loves to play, seeks out affection and attention, and is a quick learner. Because she struggled so much with her fearfulness, her vet suggested medication when her training alone wasn't helping her enough. We are never quick to turn to medication and always prefer to use positive reinforcement training first, but in Betty's case, the medication is instrumental in allowing her to live with less stress, which in turn, makes her a happier dog. She is still reactive to other dogs on leash, but responds well to training, so she needs an adopter who will be consistently with her and help her feel confident. Her ideal adopter is someone who is experienced and patient and willing to continue working with her to manage her fear and anxiety, including through the use of medication. We can recommend a trainer who can arm you with the knowledge of how to read her and help set her up for success. The other benefit of training is to help build trust between you and Betty and a deeper bond. As mentioned above, she thrives in a calm home free of chaos, as well as one where she will have ample exercise and play time. When she does not have those things, she nips out of fear and frustration, so it is important to note that she has bitten/nipped at strangers (level 1-2 bites) and will do it again when she is stressed if not properly managed. The good news is she CAN be properly managed. She currently lives with multiple dogs and does well with other dogs with proper introduction. While she didn't fail her cat test, she may be too interested in cats to coexist with them peacefully; that said, she is a bit more mature now and can be retested if your home includes a feline. Betty has so much to offer, and she so deserves a forever home that can support her and make her feel safe. It is all she has ever wanted. The adoption fee for this dog is $350. If you are interested in adopting Betty, please submit an adoption application at dcpawsrescue/adoption-info/adoption-application-dogs<b>ABOUT US & IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES:</b> Please note that you must use our official adoption application in order to be considered for adoption. Applying through other sites (i.e., Petfinder) will not work. The following are our applications: Dog application: service.sheltermanager/asmservice?account=bg0781&method=online_form_html&formid=1 Cat application: service.sheltermanager/asmservice?account=bg0781&method=online_form_html&formid=6 DC PAWS Rescue does our best to provide accurate and complete information about our adoptable animals. Please note that we cannot make any guarantees about age or breed; we rely upon our rescue partners and their veterinarians to make those assessments. We also cannot make any guarantees about housebreaking and animal temperament, as animals can behave differently through transition and in different environments. Our shelter partners provide a basic vet screening for each animal we rescue, which includes necessary vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, and spay/neuter (unless the animal is too young or otherwise deemed by the vet to not be a good candidate for surgery). Please note that this is not a comprehensive medical exam and as such, may not identify any and all medical issues, though our goal is to flag any obvious health issues through the basic vet screening. We share all medical records with adopters and are completely transparent about any known issues prior to adoption finalization. <b>About DC PAWS Rescue</b> Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We rescue locally from Prince Georges County, MD, and from rural shelters in the south (presently Pickens County, Anderson County, and Greenville County in SC, and Raleigh County, WV). We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the three area shelters. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is a critical lifeline, and often the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter program in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term. <b>Foster an Animal in Need:</b> Fosters make it possible for DC PAWS to save and care for homeless, neglected and abandoned animals! To learn about fostering dogs or cats for DC PAWS Rescue, please visit: dcpawsrescue/volunteer/fostering/foster-application <b>Sponsor an Animal in Need:</b> For any of our animals! Sponsors help us provide critical medical care, food, boarding, and other support for animals facing euthanasia. Individuals who sponsor a dog or cat receive special recognition on the animal's profile. Sponsorships can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one, and you may designate to whom DC PAWS Rescue should provide notice of your gift. Sponsorship levels of $250 and $150 include “naming rights” for a future dog or cat (respectively) that we rescue. To learn more about sponsorship, please visit: dcpawsrescue/donate/
