A SWEET, CUDDLY GIRL: 3 years old / Approx. 15 lbs.

Hi, my name is Mirabel! I gave birth to my puppies at animal control, and fortunately I entered the Mostly Mutts program the next day and got to raise my pups in a great foster home. They have been adopted and now it’s my turn! When I arrived, I had a very bad case of mange, but my fur is growing back in now and I’m looking adorable.

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I like the other dogs in my foster home and follow their lead in most things. I want them to play with me, but – alas, they are not interested. I had a blast playing with the other dog in my temp. foster home. I would benefit from having the company of another dog in my new home, as I am anxious when my people leave me, and another dog could be a comfort to me. As I get more comfortable, I am also getting a little bossy with my dog friends so I would need a dog friend who is up for some energetic playtime. / I was respectful of the kitty in my temp. foster home (he did not want to play - much to my disappointment). / There are two gentle children in my foster home (ages 7 and 9), and I absolutely love them, so if you have kids, let’s meet and best no toddlers that may fall on me.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I can be a bit nervous when meeting people at first – especially with men, as it took my foster dad some time to win me over, but he did, and we become good friends! Once I know you are my friend, I am your sweet buddy. So, just give me time to trust, and I will reward you with love. My fosters say I am getting more and more comfortable meeting new people the longer I stay with them, so just give me a little time to adjust in my new home. I’m a sweet and cuddly girl just looking for love. I’m not very brave about trying new things, so another doggie to help grow my confidence would be great. Also, though I am a chi/terrier mix, folks who have allergies to Shar-pei mixes seem to be allergic to me as well. / My energy level is approx. 4-6, though more like 6-8 (closer to 8 when I have another dog to play with).

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I don’t know any specific commands yet, as I’ve been busy raising my puppies, but perhaps you can teach me some. That would be a fun way to spend time together. / I seem to do alright in my crate if I can see you, but if I can’t, I will break out of it as well as howl and make a lot of noise, so I really need a stay-at-home or work-from-home family member who is home most of the time. I also get out of pens. I don’t think an apartment type home would be a good fit since I am loud when I’m left. / My potty habits have improved greatly in my foster home, as I follow the lead of the other dogs when they go out to potty. That’s another reason a doggie friend in my new home would benefit me. When people follow my cues and I go out with other dogs my potty manners have been good!

• LIKES/DISLIKES: Sitting and cuddling with my people makes me a happy girl! I also enjoy chasing squirrels and birds in my foster’s yard like most dogs do. Playing with other friendly dogs is so much fun, and I like walks in a quieter type of neighborhood too. / My separation anxiety is pretty strong, as I have jumped out of or destroyed crates and gates, so I’ll need a family to work with me on this. I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if I didn’t get enough love, attention, and training.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed.

So, if you have a family member that is home most of the time and another friendly dog, let’s meet. My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
