Dior‘s Story

Meet Dior. She is a precious little 8-month-old poodle, 7-pound, miniature poodle who came into rescue literally on death’s door. She needed a blood transfusion to stabilized her before the veterinarian could removed a penny that was slowly poisoning her (zinc toxicosis). Now Dior, aka Penny 😉, Has recovered nicely from surgery and continues to steadily gain weight. She is very timid but when she feels safe, she is a sweet, snuggly, funny, happy puppy. Here’s what Dior has to say about herself:

Hi...Dior here. I am feeling so much better now and am having so much fun in my foster home but I’m ready to find the forever family to call my own! I definitely want another playful dog, probably on the smaller side, who will race around the yard or house with me and play “toys”. I love to play a game called fetch with a ball and if my family is busy, I can throw it for myself and my foster sister. I know that I have to go in my crate at bedtime or when my foster family leaves for a little while and that’s fine, though I’d rather not, especially at night but I do it and don’t complain. Sometimes I’ll even go in there all by myself when a noise scares me or maybe I just need a little quiet time. I know that I’m supposed potty outside and I can use a doggie door. I love people and I love to give kisses...lots of kisses! I love to snuggle on the couch! What I don’t love are loud noises and sudden movements; scary places like the vet and groomer; walking on a leash, especially in strange places which, right now is any place that’s not home but my foster mom keeps taking me out and I’m getting better. So, in a nutshell, I would love a family with a dog to play with and a yard to play in, where someone is home most of the time. A kid or two would be awesome but not little ones cuz I’m still a puppy and I can play kinda rough. My foster mom says that my new family needs to be “dog savvy” cuz I can be stubborn and could use some basic training but I’m really smart and learn fast! Are you my furever family? I hope so. 🐾❤️
